Instead buy one of these --

You need an eyepiece This scope uses .965in eyepieces. you can find them on Ebay. Maximum magnification is 100x NOT 420x. These scopes have inferior optics and terrible mounts. Don't spend much on this scope. Buy a 20mm (35x magnification) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Astro-Optics-20mm-965-Telescope-Eyepiece-NEW-/230688144635?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b615bcfb or a 15mm (45x magnification) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Astro-Optics-20mm-965-Telescope-Eyepiece-NEW-/230688144635?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b615bcfb on Ebay If you are interested in astronomy, you need to spend some money on a good scope. Check out Orion for a great tabletop dob for $100 http://www.telescope.com/Telescopes/Dobsonian-Telescopes/Mini-Dobsonians/Orion-SkyScanner-100mm-TableTop-Reflector-Telescope/pc/1/c/12/sc/28/p/9541.uts

This is a simple refractor telescope. Put the diagional into the focuser and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow.

Take the scope outside during the day and point it at a building or telephone pole in the distance-- take the lens cap off. Practice focusing the scope on the distant object until you get a sharp clear image.

If this is a reflector the mirrors can be removed and cleaned using this method: watch the video:

Thanks.

Why would you need a 60mm eyepiece? I doubt these can even be purchased since I have never seen anything over 50mm -- this is a VERY low power eyepiece! The bigger the number the lower the magnification.

The normal ones would be 20mm-25mm and a 10mm-12mm.

This company sells eyepieces-- they come in 3 sizes, .965, 1.25, and 2 inch. Measure the hole in the focuser and buy the correct size:

You don't need it-- instead just download the free Stellarium planetarium software here:

http://www.stellarium.org

Put in your location and it will show you the sky for any time or date. It's a really neat free Astronomy program.

There is a good website for beginners with these small scopes at THIS LINK

To start out, try the scope with the LEAST powerful eyepiece (the one with the biggest number) in daylight (but never point it anywhere near the Sun). You need to zero in the finder scope in daylight too, or you will never be able to find objects with the main scope at night. If you got a Barlow lens with this scope, throw it away.

You put the prism into the focuser and then the eyepiece with the largest number written on it. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow until you learn how to focus properly.
