Highest theoretical power is 250x but it has to be a perfect night. konus does have very good optics but at f/4.3 it is a low power, wide field scope. So 500mm fl / 2mm eyepiece = 250x. Eyepieces of that high power have eye relief issues as well as blurry edges unless you want to pay $500 or more
Here is a good eyepiece which will give you 96x and 20mm eye relief. I own the 12.5mm version

BTW I rarely go over 150x with my big scope, the higher the power also equals seeing more atmosphere

What should the cylinder compression be for a 1914cc vw engine when using a compression gage in spark plug hole


Don't know the specs for it, but it has to be over 100psi in each cylinder for the cylinder to fire and produce power. Less than that and it is questionable if the cylinder will even fire.
Do all of the cylinders. If the lowest reading is within 75% of the highest reading, then it is good.
Example- Nissan engine had highest reading of 160 psi, and lowest was 145 psi. That was a good engine with normal power. Another Datsun engine had highest 140 psi and lowest of 125 psi. Also a good running engine, but you could tell the power was just slightly reduced compared to a newer engine. Your VW should be somewhere in this range, the higher above, say, 140 or 150 psi, the better. If below 100psi, then probably internal mechanical problem.

I cannot get the konusmotor 500 to see out of


  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

When I look through the len I don't see anything


What eyepiece do you have installed and how far away is the item you are trying to look at. It is possible that you have too much magnification for the item you are trying to view.

"peaking at 3.1" is the highest possible data transfer rate of the device. however, the transfer capabilities are usually set by your internet provider. you should contact you provider to know if they allow the transfer rates your device can manage.

Will not sit up straight


Not for that telescope. However you may find what you need at a well stocked local hardware store. The ALTITUDE adjuster bolts are loose or stripped.

Your telescope must be pointed DIRECTLY at them. Right now Venus, Mars, and Saturn at up in the evening sky after dark. Download a free planetarium software and locate the planets in the sky.

www.stellarium.org is a free software program

I have erected my new konus 500 telescope but despite using the focussing dial I could not get the moon to focus


To much magnification. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope.

Try again.
