My celestron 114 EQ Is now put together. I have a apple computer

I have a apple computer so I can't use the CD's that came with it. I don't have anything telling me how to use this. I tried looking out of the eye pice but I don't see anything. It's now 11:30pm.

    I'm having essentially the same problem--I can't see anything! Additionally, I'm not really sure how to physically use the top scope?? (I'm an English teacher so all this science stuff is a little foreign to me. However, I live in the country with clear, starry skies, so I REALLY want to learn!) My telescope didn't come with basic operating instructions, and I can't really seem to find any on the net. In basic (very basic) information would really be helpful.

Did you start by using your lowest magnification eyepiece? Until you get used to that one it's almost impossible to use the higher powered eyepieces. I was looking too high in the sky and with too much magnification and was having the same problem. Find something like the roof of the garage and then gradually sweep the sky just above it slowly. --- If you can see only black during the day too - there is possibly a misalighnement of mirrors - you can buy a collumating kit from - hope this helps.

Image is upside down in Celestron PowerSeeker 114AZ telescope

That's because this telescope is what's called a reflector. The image in reflector telescopes are upside down. This isn't an issue since reflectors are designed for looking at the night sky.

Our Celestron Power Seeker 114EQ fell over, now we are having difficulty seeing through it. Are the mirrors jostled, is there a way to fix this?

Most likely-- watch this video to learn how to collimate your scope.

Also look inside the tube and see if the secondary mirror under the focuser came loose.

Celestron powerseeker 114 #21045 not working

This is a simple reflecting telescope-- put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- take it outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.
