You must first align the finderscope with the main tube. During the day time focus on the top of a telephone pole in the distance with the main telescope tube. Without moving the scope get the top of the telephone pole in the crosshairs of the small finder by turning the adjustment screws on the small finder scope.

Cannot see anything thru telescope even daytime


  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

30 year old telescope. do lenses go bad?


General tips
  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away. NEVER THE SUN!
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  8. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  9. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects
Specific:
You can clean the lenses by using a camera brush/puffer. For stains: 1 part distilled water 1 part 97% or better isopropyl alcohol. Use a cotton ball to apply. One stroke per ball. Dry with cotton balls working form the center out.
The eyepieces you have are pretty poor. I suspect they are also 0.965 diameter. If so, go to Ebay and get 2 or 3 MA (modified achromat) or Kelner eyepieces They are very inexpensive.Your H20 (lowest power) is not too bad but very narrow field of view.
If your scope uses 1.25 inch diameter eyepieces, your options are too wide to expound here.
You will get a good, low power view of the moon with the 20mm but the sr4's eye relief (distance your eye has to be to the top of the eyepiece to focus) may make it difficult

I have put my sons telescope together but we cannot see through it at all. what could be the problem?


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.
Best,
Mark

No matter what lense I apply to the telescope (omega refractor 200x) I can't get a good view of the moon. What should I do?


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the scope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one.

This is a very small telescope not much bigger in aperture than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. You should be able to get enough magnification to see craters on the moon.

It will NOT do 200x power this is a lie that they advertise on low cost telescopes. The MAXIMUM possible magnification for any telescope is 40-50 times aperture. You scope is about 2 inches so 80-100 power is the MAX!. The sky conditions must be perfect to reach the maximum.

Never buy a telescope that advertises magnification on the outside of the box. Aperture and quality optics are much more important than magnification.

I bought a used Bauch &Lomb 560 Professional series telescope Model 78-0560 Does anyone still sell eye pieces for it? One inch diameter?


You mean .965 size eyepieces. These are becoming hard to find. Check with these two retailers:

How to use telescope at night?


Many people have the same problem-- with these small telescopes you are stuck with seeing only the moon, and several other planets, and maybe a few bright star clusters.

These are all TINY objects (except for the moon).... when you look through the telescope you are looking at a section of sky about the size of your fingertip held at arms length-- the scope must be pointed DIRECTLY at the object. Practice on the moon first-- and then try to find Saturn which is up in the sky right now-- it looks like a dim (slightly yellow) star.
