Question about JCPenney Optics
Looking through a telescope requires some understanding. First, It is an extremely powerful magnifier. So you could be looking next to a star and not see a thing.
So here is the best way to set up the scope for observing.
First, Find the moon as it is the easiest to view.
2nd USE THE SMALL FINDER SCOPE with it's cross hairs (if it has them) to locate the moon. It may have to be adjusted to be accurate itself.
3rd Set up the main section of the telescope with the lowest power magnification possible. Don't use the Barlow lens yet.
4th Make sure there are no lens caps in the wrong places.
After you have set it up so that you can locate the moon with the lowest possible magnification of the main scope. Use it to refine the adjustments on the finder scope (if it's possible).
Happy star finding.
P.S. There are some excellent software programs that help you identify some of the objects in the heavens.
