Sorry-- there are several different ways it could go depending on the barlow. NEVER disassemble an eyepiece or a barlow. Only the outside surfaces need to be cleaned from time to time.

No image through lenses


1. During the daylight point the telescope towards an object (water tower, building ) something about 1/2 mile away.
2. Locate the object in your finder.
3. Use the 12.5mm lens (50x) and look through the telescope. Do not use the erect prism
4. Align the finder to what you see in the scope.
5. You can use the 4mm to fine adjust the finder.
6. On a good, clear night.Leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium ( about a hour) Point the finder towards the moon
7. Use the 12.5mm and then focus on the moon.

Note: This is NOT a quality scope. Avoid any scope with .965 eyepieces and silly magnifications! Max power on this scope on a PERFECT night is 200x and Huygens (H12.5) eyepieces give very narrow and poor viewing. Do not use the 3x barlow or the erecting prism. the erecting prism is for terrestrial viewing only and the barlow, although it increases the eyepiece by 3x, will also narrow the view.
Good Luck!

Vivitar 76mm reflector teles.76700 barlow lens 3x eyepiece is to small for it.is there a reducer for the barlow ?kit came with two 3x barlow.same size


No the barlow increases the magnification by 3 TIMES for any eyepiece --
this will be too much for that small 76mm telescope.

Magnification is the least important quality of a telescope. Aperture and quality ioptics are much more important. I usually never use a barlow -- just the straight eyepieces in various mm sizes.

We have a refractor AZ2 holder (the only name we have.) No manual, several lenes, but how to put them together??? The lenses are SR4mm, H12.5mm, 1.5X erecting eyepiece & 3X Barlow Lens. Hope you can...


The 3 x barlow will be useless for this small telescope.

Put the 1.5 x erecting PRISM into the telescope and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the erecting prism. This is your lowest magnification.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. Turn the focuser knobs slowly until the object comes into sharp focus.

What is the barlow lens for and how do i use it


It multiplies the normal magnification of the eyepiece. They come in 2x, 3x, 4x, and 5x powers.

Normally in a very small telescope like your scope, they are completely useless! They generate too much magnification for that small aperture.

You would normally put the barlow into the telescope, and then put the eyepiece into the barlow lens.

Lense taken apart, not sure how to reassemble


Sorry cannot help you. If it has more than 3 elements no one except an optical technician can reassemble the elements. Call Meade customer service. They may take it back knowing what happened????

I have a 3x Barlow telescope that is completely disassembled and I need instructions on how to reassemble thee entire telescope.


There is no such thing as a 3x barlow telescope. A barlow is a small accessory that multiplies the magnification of any eyepiece.

I am 9 can't see out of my galileo 700x60 telescope what do i need to do


there are 3 types of telescopes:
1)refractor, uses lenses
2)reflector, uses mirrors
3)catadioptric, uses both

try this and practice doing this during the day time, it's easier.

get your eyepiece, the one with the highest number on it (# mm); this is your lowest power eyepiece, always use this first (wider view and easier to see where you're pointing it), and place it in your telescope.

next, use the focusing knob to focus on a target (a faraway tree, lamp post, etc.). once you have it focused, and if you want to get a closer look, get the next highest number eyepiece and refocus on the target. this is how you change magnification.
if you have a barlow lens (2x or 3x) this will also change the magnification by 2x or 3x without having to buy other eyepieces, although you can still buy more.
put it together in this order:
eyepiece-->barlow lens-->telescope

use the star diagnal for land viewing.

if you have a reflector telescope,
the open part of the telescope tube next to the focuser points to your target. focus it the same as above.

oh, and sometimes, with refractors, you might have to use the
45 degree or 90 degree diagnal to focus the telescope.

and google how to use a telescope. there's nice observing tips :D

hope this helps :D

oh, and check out the moon at night. it's a very nice target.
best time to observe the moon is when it's not full.
you gotta check out the 'terminator' (area on the moon where the light and darkness is separated.

Bushnell Deep Space Series 525x 78-9500 We didn't assemble when we received as a gift a couple of years ago and now realize that the assembly instructions were left out of box. We assembled telescope but...


The erecting prism can be used for both terrestrial and star gazing-- put it innto the scope first.

The 3x barlow probably will NOT be very useful... it triples the power of any eyepiece. Your small scope cannot go much over 100 power-- before the image degrades.

Put the eyepiece with the BIGGEST number written on it into the erecting prism which you previously stuck into the scope... now go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

The bigger the number on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.

Cannot see anything out of main telescope


Do NOT use the barlow lens-- put the lowest magnification eyepiece into the scope-- practice focusing on the moon -- turn the focus knob slowly in and out until you get a sharp image.

Telescopes only show an area of sky about 1 degree wide or LESS--- this is about the size of the TIP of your finger held at arms length................ your scope is best used at low magnification.
