Upsidedowm image on a KOUSMOTOR-500 Telescope

Hi ya,

Because of the way they are designed all reflecting astronomical telescopes produce an inverted image. If you are looking at objects in space it doesn't really matter which way they are up, there is no up or down in space.

You can buy an inverter which will correct the image, just google it to find one.

Cheers

I want to know if my barska telescopes atainable power is 600 what planets can i see and how good would the imag be??


Telescopes that are advertised as having powers of 300, 500, 600 or whatever are scams. You will not be able to see anything but dim blurs if you attempt to use them at such magnifications.

There is a good website for telescope beginners that explains the issues clearly at THIS LINK

All astronomical telescopes show upside down images -- it is normal. Nothing is wrong with the telescope.

HOW CAN I TAKE PICTURES OR VIDEO WITH MY ETX-125EC? WHAT DO I NEED TO DO THIS?


You can buy this device and take prime focus images using a small digital camera. Make sure the camera can take timed photos of up to 30 seconds long.

I have a tasco 302911 D+114mm F+500mm telescope


You are NOT focused properly. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. Turn the focus knob back and forth slowly until the image is in sharp focus.

Can't focus using 5mm lens


TOO much magnification for that 3 inch telescope. The most you will get is about 120 power or so on perfect sky nights. Try a 10mm or 9 mm as your most powerful eyepiece.

50 times aperture is the maximum possible.

I have erected my new konus 500 telescope but despite using the focussing dial I could not get the moon to focus


To much magnification. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope.

Try again.

TOO much magnification! Hate to tell you but the MAXIMUM magnification for any telescope (all things being perfect-- like optics, and sky conditions) is 50 times aperture. So max for you is about 125 power.

Normally only about 30-40 times aperture is possible. So about 90 power is your normal max magnification.

We see this every Christmas. People buy scopes that say 275 power or 500 power on the outside of the box. It's a LIE!

Even in my 8 inch LX90 I rarely go above 200 power, and only when the sky is clear and very stable. Use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it which will be your lowest magnification.

I don't know how to use the motor and the image is upside down


All astronomical telescopes have upside down images. No up more down in space, and MORE glass is needed to erect the image which decreases the light.

If your scope is like the one in the picture it is an equatorial mount which must be polar aligned to work. Once the scope is roughly polar aligned the motor will keep the object in the eyepiece for a long period of time. It moves the RA axis in time with the movement of the stars across the sky.

Etx cant focus


The LPI camera will HIGHLY magnify the image-- about like a 6mm -8mm eyepiece-- tiny adjustments are needed to focus. You can buy a .5 or .3 focal reducer which will widen the field of view and make it easier to focus--

On my LX90 --- it takes about 20 TURNS of the focus knob to go between the eyepiece view and the camera view!

ETX 125 Loose image when focusing


The ETX family (and other Meade LX telescopes), use a moving mirror system for focus. The focus knob moves the main mirror in and out. For smooth operation, there is some slack on the central tube that allows the mirror to rock slightly as it moves. That is a normal condition, and the movement is magnified, the greater the magnification of the eyepiece.
