Telescopes have VERY small fields of view, and YOUR telescope will never reach 375 power.

Why? The maximum magnification of any telescope is 50 times aperture. So a 3 inch scope is 150 power.

Do not try to use max power-- I own several scopes in the 10 inch range, many times larger than your scope. Normally we use from 80-150 power to show objects in the night sky. Remember the scope has a field of view smaller than the tip of your finger held at arm's length!

Got a old scope i can just make out its a gold crown the rest is rubbed off how do I find out how old it is and what is the size ( zoom)

Nikko Stirling is my best guess and can be from 1956 till today
And without getting my grubies on it all I can suggest is to search every Nikko scope until you narrow down the choices
I have 2 from the 1980's one has a serial number below the windage turret mount on the tube the other doesn't
Measure the objective bell to help with the search

93 Nissan Maxima sat several months, had to jump the battery took several tries, checked the oil dipstick and it had a slight gas smell. Could this be from trying to crank it several times before it...

From my experiance anything that's mixed with oil will change the colour of in some way, keep N eye on your oil for the next few drives just to make sure there's no change in oil colour. If it's not blowing smoke and oil colour stays the same, just put high octane fuel in to clean out the system. Hope this helps.

Are laser pointers dangerous?

It is always recommended that you avoid pointing a laser pointer at eyes because they can cause eye damage. The very strong laser pointers come with some dorky looking protective glasses and they come with these glasses come with the laser because they are dangerous.

I have a tasco galaxsee 14-114375. when i look through the high powered eye peice i can never find the object. i can see colours if i look at buildings and such, but if i try to see a star its just black....

1. Your finder is not properly aligned with the telescope. Therefore you are not looking at what the finder is looking at.
2. Max. power of the scope is 250x (if everything was perfect and it ain't) 375x like they say on the box is a LIE!
Tasco eyepieces are junk and you may be suffering from eyepiece "blackout" magnification = 500(focal length)/ eyepiece focal length

Will it work without the eye peice and Diagonal

It will work without the diagonal (maybe) if you have enough focus range BUT it must have an eyepiece. Measure the hole. It's eithe .965 or 1.25 inch-- you can buy eyepieces at many online retailers. Here is one:

Can't see object with 6450 Telescope

You cannot use high power in those small telescopes. Only use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

I know the box said 600 power--- it was a complete LIE! The maximum magnification is 50 times aperture. You probably have something like a 2 inch lens. So 100 power is the maximum usable power.

Next time buy a telescope similar to this one:

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope and practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

I bought these for my husband. In trying them

Difficult to answer specifically without knowing the model. But binoculars are designed to view objects in the distance. They all have a limit as to how close they will focus based on the magnification and design. Objective lenses that are far apart such as on a porro prism binocular will not focus very close. The nature of the design of having the objectives further apart than the eyepieces doesn't allow it. When trying to focus too close the image will appear blurred and double. That is the nature of the design. 9 feet or 3 metres is considered quite close to focus a binocular and is usually for a model designed to do this such as a roof prism where the objective lens and the eye lenses are inline. A specialty binocular such as the Pentax Papilo will close focus to 50 centimeters. It has been designed so that the objective (large lenses) lenses converge.

Take into account when focusing that binoculars are also designed to compensate for differences in each eye. One of the eyepieces either right or left will adjust seperately. For binoculars with a center focus ring. First focus using the center ring with one eye covered. The eye that should be covered is the one that doesn't have the adjusting eyepiece. When the image is clear close the eye you have just used and leave the center focus alone. Focusing on the same spot look through the eyepiece that adjusts and turn the eyepiece ring until the image is clear. Now all you have to do is focus using the center ring only as the binoculars are adjusted for each eye.

Some binoculars do not have a center focus and each eye will adjust seperately.
