What eyepiece size are you using and what planet are you targeting? Jupiter is usually a good starter after you've practiced on the moon.

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

Will you be able to see the moon and planets with this telescope?


Yes you will -- you can see the 5 of the major planets without a telescope!

My son gave me a Galileo CC-JRS telescope, but he says there are some parts missing and I would like to see if i can replace the parts


Sorry no parts for this telescope which is being sold by Toys R Us.

This is one of the worst telescopes you could have purchased. Plastic eyepieces and a plastic focuser! We receive many complaints about not being able to focus, and breaking very quickly. Sorry.

Try again--- next time get one of these which is the best value in amateur astronomy.

Konusmotor 500 (230 x 114mm) Telescope: i can not see the planets...


Your telescope must be pointed DIRECTLY at them. Right now Venus, Mars, and Saturn at up in the evening sky after dark. Download a free planetarium software and locate the planets in the sky.

www.stellarium.org is a free software program

The telescope doesnt go up it goes down


I assume you are using the 497 hand controller? Planets will always be a little bit OFF since their orbits are calculated. You should be able to see Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn as a disk-- the other planets are very tiny and can be mistaken for a star.

Use the Automatic alignment feature and center the brightest nearest star. It will not be in the eyepiece. Be sure you calibrate motors, and train the drives, and the time, and date and site are accurate.
