Purchase a 263/525 Reflector Telescope put it together, took off the eyepiece lens caps, but still unable to see anything. Does the end filter of telescope need to be removed?


The picture in your post is NOT a reflector style telescope:

This is a reflector:

Notice that the eyepiece is in the FRONT side of the scope. Take the front lens cap off-- the primary mirror is on the BOTTOM of the tube.

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.

We can not see anything out of the telescope only on the guide can we see anything


This is a reflector style telescope with a MIRROR in the bottom. The focuser end is pointed UP like in the picture above.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

Read my tips on my profile page. AND-- reda this:

We are unable to see anything through the scope. Can you send instructions that are in laymens terms?


There are TWO types of telescopes a refractor and a reflector.

The picture you posted is a refractor telescope.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. You may also have a diagonal which contains a small mirror and makes it easier to look through the telescope when it is pointed up.

If you do have a diagonal, put it into the focuser first, and then put the eyepiece into the diagonal. Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

Luminova 40114675 (675 x 114mm) Telescope: cant veiw anything out of it...


This is a REFLECTOR style telescope. The end with the focuser and the eyepiece is pointed UP. the mirror is on the bottom of the scope.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it.

The PICTURE shown above really makes me laugh. The scope is mounted BACKWARDS in the picture above, and is pointed toward the GROUND not the sky. Even FIXYA puts them on the mount backwards!

Look at this picture. See how the eyepiece and focuser are on the end pointed toward the sky. The MIRROR is the BOTTOM of the telescope:

I believe your scope is mounted backwards just like the picture FIXYA applied to your question!

Need set up instructions & User guide. Using camera on telescope.


You will not find a specific manual for that small telescope. However Meade maintains a web site with manuals for their telescopes. Find one similar to yours and download it for free. AND-- forget about doing astro-photography with that telescope. You might get a picture of the moon but not much more.

www.Meade.com look under Customer Service--- Manuals

Try to attend a local Astronomy club's star party in your area and ask questions.

Loose dirt on mirror Meade Lx6


Nope, the dust is on the webcam sensor. The telescope mirror is too far away to influence the image. Most modified cameras have no window to keep dust off the sensor's cover. A camera lens cleaning brush works fine. Also, some cameras have 'hot pixels' that are defects in the sensor, and are permanent.

PLEASE HELP


Here is a picture of the scope setup--

http://www.shopwiki.com/detail/d=Tasco_Luminova_660_x_60mm_Refractor_Telescope/

Very simple to operate--

Take lens Cap off

Put diagonal into telescope (an "L" shaped component with a small mirror inside)

Put eyepiece into diagonal- use the lowest magnification which is the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it.

Go outside during the daytime and practice focusing the telescope on a distant object at least 100 yards away...... tuen the focus knob very slowly.

Take it back to the store and get a refund then buy your son this telescope--
http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=dobsonians/~pcategory=telescopes/~product_id=09814

Do not buy Tasco, Bushnell, Jupiter, Baytronic or any other department store junk telescope.

Sorry but it costs at least $200 to get a small good telescope-- and the prices go up from there. Also run away from any telescope that has pretty color pictures on the box taken by the Hubble Space Telescope-- or that has the POWER listed on the box (something like 550x) --- magnification is not important...... most of us us less than 100 power even in LARGE 8-10 inch telescopes costing thousands of dollars.
