Question about Vivitar (1607225) Telescope

1 Answer

Hello there, my name is Paul and I had just recently purchased the Vivitar Refractor Telescope 60X/120X with Tripod. I have assembled everything correctly, however I have tried to view the moon, but I cannot see a sing thing. All I see is a blurry light and the lens is not focused at all no matter how many times I adjusted it. If you could please help in seeing clearly I'd appreciate it very much. Thank you.

This is one of the worst telescopes you could have purchased. Plastic eyepieces and a plastic focuser! We receive many complaints about not being able to focus.

Try again--- next time buy one of these which is the best value in amateur astronomy.

I have purchased 60x/120xRefractor Telescope with tripod vivitar series 1/ we see nothing out of it at all what has happened

Take the scope outside during the day time. Remove the lens cap-- put the diagonal into the focuser at the rear of the scope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. DO NOT use the 2x barlow-- practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

The moon should be your first target at night.

YOU MUST first line up the finderscope with the main tube--

Get the top of a telephone pole in the main tube's eyepiece. Without moving the scope adjust the cross-hairs of the small finderscope so they line-up on the same object.

I want an instruction manual more clear, of 60x/120x Refractor Telescope 50600

Sorry no manuals for that brand of telescope on the internet. However Bushnell has a web site with their manuals. Find one that is similar to your scope here:

They all assemble in a similar fashion.

Does it have a name on the scope? If it has a MIRROR in the bottom it is a REFLECTOR.

If it has a lens on the front it is a REFRACTOR. Look on Meade's manual web site under the header REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope.

Need new tripod for telescope30x 60x 50mm

Regular telescope tripods will cost more than you paid for the telescope. Try to find a regular camera tripod that will work. You can get any bolts or nuts from your local well stocked hardware store. Hopefully it is a 1/4 inch bolt holding the scope.
