What eyepieces sizes have you used?Try using the largest eyepieces you have (20mm, 25mm or higher) for a wide field of view. If your eyepiece is to small (maybe 15mm or below) you will have too much magnification and the moon will be a blur.

Seeing the stars


The stars will always be "points in the sky" no matter what telescope. The stars should be sharp, focused points in the center of view (more blurry towards the edges because of the stock eyepieces and the fast telescope mirror) if not, the telescope may need collimation. (look at instructions and/or search online. Plenty of instructions on the net.) Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy programDuring the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube. Center the landscape object in the telescope. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.Practice finding the moon before you start on the planetsOnce you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

How put it together - Bushnell Tasco Telescope Galaxsee 525x60mm Refractor Telescope 46-060525


Often, you can find product manuals at the bottom of product pages on Fixya. (You can get to a product page by searching or clicking the product picture).See the assembly instructions here: http://www.fixya.com/support/p407591-bushnell_tasco_telescope_galaxsee/usermanual-6B20BB2-pdfI wasn't able to locate the manual online, but Tasco has an online pdf for similar models which can be found here: http://www.tasco.com/products/manuals/46060675_TML-722.pdf

Telescope is only good for viewing moon...help!!!


Your scope is 565mm focal length with a 60mm objective which makes it f:9.5. (telescope focal length divided by lens diameter)all this means that the optics are capable of viewing larger planets. nebula is a bit of a stretch. maybe under exceptionally dark skies with at least 30min. of dark adaptation. brighter objects like m42 or m31 should be visible, bear in mind that only very large telescopes will resolve the slightest hint of color in nebulosity. the rest of us are reserved to gray scale. i would suggest using a 26mm eyepiece plossl if available. next make sure your finding system is aligned to the scope. this is best done during the day at a distant object like a radio tower. center the object in the eyepiece then align the finder.next get your self a good sky map like stellarium software a freebie and a fav. to ensure your looking at what you think your looking at.a word on eyepiece selection. magnification is calculated by dividing the focal length of the scope by the focal length of the eyepiece. for instance the scope is 565mm the recommended eyepiece is 26mm so the magnification would be around 22x.a rule of thumb for optics is about 50x per inch of objective. which means your scope is good for about 100x. so by the math you would use a 5.6mm e.p. to achieve 100x, however as optical powers increase field of view decreases making it difficult to find objects. find your object with a wide field e.p. then switch to a higher power to zoom in. if the image gets fuzzy at high power attempt to refocus, if it doesn't clean up either your asking a bit to much from the scope or seeing conditions in the upper atmosphere may not be ideal. what ever you do don't give up there are some amazing things to see out there.

I need info for Meade telescope & manual D=60mm F=700mm are the only things on it. I got it at a goodwill store and wondered if anyone can help . I don't know anything about it. It is sil


This is aperture (front diameter) 60mm and focal length 700mm, a typical telescope of its size. It is probaly a 80AZ model. An instructional video is herehttp://www.meade.com/educational/azseries_videos/index.htmluser manual is herehttp://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

I have just been given a Tasco 851TR telescope that I know does not have all the parts it came with new. It needs some fixing up for sure, but I am completely new to using a telescope and can use any friendly help I can get. Last night I attempted to "gaze" at the moon. I say attempted because no matter how long I tried, I couldn't get the aim right or get the moon to hold still. At this point I'm looking for any and all advice and information I can find.


The Moon, the planets NOR the stars will hold still for you, sorry. You have to keep moving the 'scope to "track" them.
