How do i set up eye pieces and focus lenses?? Instruction manual came in chinese with no translation and we are begiiners!


During the day:
1. Point to a far (1000 meters or more) object
2. Insert the lowest power (highest number) eyepiece e.g. 25mm
3. focus on the object.
4. Align finder to match what you see in the scope.
At night.
1. Put scope out and let it reach the temperature of the outside.
2. Point finder to the moon (1st object you should always use to check scope and finder alignment)
3. Use the same low power eyepiece.
4. If everything seems fine, switch to a higher power eyepiece and enjoy the view. You may have to slightly adjust the finder to align with the main scope.
If the views are blurry, the telescope may be out of collimation. Look on the internet for generic collimation instructions.
If this still did not help. Throw the scope out! Its probably a piece of junk and will only discourage you.

I have a newtonian telescope 76mm with SR4, H12.5 and H20. I have aligned the crosses up and can see through the viewfinder but nothing through the eye piece. Ive placed all the other lenses into the eye...


YOU MUST align the small finder scope with the main tube.

Point the scope at a distant object like the top of a telephone pole. GET the top in the center of the eyepiece in the main scope.

Then without moving the scope-- adjust the cross-hairs in the small finder scope so they line up on the same object.

The holder for the sighting scope that is mounted to the main tube of the telescope with two screws is broken and i need to replace the holding part that has two screws so that I can use the sighting scope


I would just replace the entire finder scope with a better quality-- here is one retailer that sells replacement finder scopes:

I was just given a telescope and I need a reliable place to purchase parts. The main piece i'm looking for is an adjustor ring on the aiming scope and some different eye pieces


Meade may have the part, but I doubt it. You can call them here:

It might be easier just to replace the finder scope with one of these:

or this:

Eyepieces can be purchased at many on-line retailers. Here are two:

Can't see object with 6450 Telescope


You cannot use high power in those small telescopes. Only use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

I know the box said 600 power--- it was a complete LIE! The maximum magnification is 50 times aperture. You probably have something like a 2 inch lens. So 100 power is the maximum usable power.

Next time buy a telescope similar to this one:

150-1400 Newtonian telescope Set the sight scope eye piece on the moon and looked in the pl 25mm lens in the focusing tube and no image? Can anyone help Philip moondogs2@myway.com


You must align the finder scope with the main telescope tube--

During the daytime look at something far away in the main scope-- without moving the scope center the cross hairs on the finder scope.

Good luck
