There is a tiny setscrew on this side of the focus knob. Make sure it is tight or the knob will just spin around the shaft.

Cannot see anything out of main telescope


Do NOT use the barlow lens-- put the lowest magnification eyepiece into the scope-- practice focusing on the moon -- turn the focus knob slowly in and out until you get a sharp image.Telescopes only show an area of sky about 1 degree wide or LESS--- this is about the size of the TIP of your finger held at arms length................ your scope is best used at low magnification.

All of Meade's manuals are listed here--http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.htmlTake it outside during the day time-- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope--- this is the LOWEST magnification.Point it at a distant object and practice focusing-- the moon should be your first night time object.

We receive more complaints on that telescope than just about any other. Many people post the same problem -- unable to focus. Take it back to where you bought it, and never buy that brand again.

Hello there, my name is Paul and I had just recently purchased the Vivitar Refractor Telescope 60X/120X with Tripod. I have assembled everything correctly, however I have tried to view the moon, but I cannot see a sing thing. All I see is a blurry light and the lens is not focused at all no matter how many times I adjusted it. If you could please help in seeing clearly I'd appreciate it very much. Thank you.


This is one of the worst telescopes you could have purchased. Plastic eyepieces and a plastic focuser! We receive many complaints about not being able to focus. Try again--- next time buy one of these which is the best value in amateur astronomy.http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=08942

I cannot adjust the telescope in order to see celestial objects other than the moon. I may hve altered the focus point can you help? I have never really been able to use it and have had it for years now, I need instruction.


You need to learn the night sky. Join a local astronomy club and the members will help you.If your scope is on an equatorial mount. The mount must first be polar aligned in order to use it.http://arnholm.org/astro/polar_alignment/index.html
