Cant see anything ?

I going to straight forward on this answer. This telescope is a useless piece of junk! The tripod is unstable, the .965 (obsolete size and design) eyepieces will only focus dead center. The finder is useless, too narrow a field to find anything. The high power eyepiece exceeds the maximum useful magnification (only 98x max under perfect conditions) This may be used for terrestrial viewing but worthless for astronomy.

How do you use the vivitar telescope? i cant see anything through it!

I am very sorry but this is one of the worst telescopes you could possibly buy. Plastic eyepieces, and even a plastic focuser. Many people have problems using this cheap telescope.

Try again--- next time buy something like this, which is the best value for the money in amateur astronomy.

Dont know how to put the eye pieces on the telescope. cant see anything through the scope

Eyepieces ALWAYS go into the focuser. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Take it outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

The moon should be your first target at night. Read my TIPS on my profile page.

I cant see anything when attempting to view the night sky

Yes objects in the sky are TINY and DIM. You just cannot point the scope UP and expect to see anything. The scope has a field of view smaller than the tip of your finger held at arms length. That's why we always suggest a pair of binoculars to a beginner because they have a wider field of view which makes finding sky objects easier.

Read my TIPS on my profile page, and try to locate a local Astronomy club to get help with your telescope.

THE protective cover is the FRONT of the telescope!!!

The focuser is on the front like the picture above. TURN the scope around -- you have it pointing at the ground right now!

New bushnell telescope, cant see anything, what am i doing wrong?

Put the lowest power eyepiece in the telescope-- that's the one with the LARGEST number on it.

Go outside and practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away-- turn the focus knob slowly.

just use the lens with the larger number on it such as 25mm by itself. If that doesn't work you may need to adjust the mirrors the could have been knocked out of alinement durning shipping..
