Just put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

Contact the manufacturer / importer, or your local optics dealer.

There are probably several good books on astronomy which you may obtain from your local library that could give the information you require, but I doubt if there is one specifically for your telescope. Have you tried contacting the mfrs or importers to see if they can assist you ? After all, it is in their interest to ensure you are satisfied with your purchase.

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.

Was the card formatted IN the camera? Some cameras MUST format the card not on a computer. Try that first. If you did not see an error on your camera screen, then the card may be unusable.
