Eypieces in telescopes usually come in two sizes .9" and 1.25" diameter. There are hundreds of scientific companies or telescope companies that can supply you with an inexpensive replacement. The eyepiece focal lengths, usually in millimeters, determines the magnification of the telescope. The focal length of the main lens divided by the focal length of the eyepiece is the magnification of the telescope. Usually two eyepieces are enough for your scope. Good luck

We have a Vivitar 50x/100x Refractor Telescope. I can't find the eye pieces. Any ideas on where to find them online? Most of the comments/reivews I've read say it's not a good telescope anyway. Comments?

Commonly available astronomical telescope eyepieces are 1.25 inches in outside diameter. If the eyepiece tube on your scope is that dimension (inside diameter) then you will have no trouble finding lots of them in various focal lengths on Amazon or eBay. However, there are lots of "toy" telescopes that use proprietary eyepieces of smaller sizes, and these would be harder to get hold of.

Telscope eye piece

Eyepieces are for the most part interchangeable. Your scope will have a focuser on it in one of 3 diameters. 2", 1.25", and the rare .965". Most inexpensive scope will use a 1.25" eyepiece. 2" focusers are usually found on more expensive scopes used for astrophotography due to the increased field of view with the larger diameter. Plossl eyepieces are fairly inexpensive and are good for all around use. I would suggest getting 2 one at 25mm or greater and one around 9mm. has a large selection however their are many suppliers out there. Good luck and happy star hopping

My father received a really nice Maede telescope, model 2114 I believe, a while ago, and I decided to take it out of it's attic resting place to actually get it working. However I believe it is missing the eyepiece. I have the viewfinder but no eye piece to actually see into the telescope. where can I find a replacement piece?

Most telescopes use a standard fitting eyepiece with a 1.25 inch outside diameter barrel. You can measure the mount where the eyepiece goes to make sure that yours is this size, then search on eBay or Amazon for "1.25 eyepiece" and you will find many available. Some of these will even be made by Meade, but any make will fit. The other variable will be the focal length of the eyepiece, which is what determines it's power. The power of the scope will be the focal length of the main objective divided by the focal length of the eyepiece, so a 9mm eyepiece will give a higher magnification (and be dimmer and harder to focus and find objects) than a 20mm eyepiece. It is usual to have two or three different focal length eyepieces for viewing different objects.You will find a large variation in prices, which is partly due to the difference in quality and type of construction of the eyepieces. Kellner eyepieces are simple and cheap, whereas Possl or orthoscopic ones are more complex and cost more. There are reasons why people will pay more for the better eyepieces.

Tasco GALAXSEE675X 60m w/tripod

It may not have shipped with an eyepiece, some scopes don't. They would have been junk anyway LOL. This part is interchangeable and removable.The suggested solutions that will appear below are older but accurate.Your scope will benefit greatly from having 2 eyepieces of modest cost but better quality. I'd recommend something like

Hi, a few days back I purchased Nexstar 4SE. I set it up exactly how it says in the manual still I cannot see any magnifying views from the eye piece. While aligning the telescope I can find the moon from StarPointer but when I look in the eyepiece I can't see moon. When I look at stars from the eye piece they just appear like a tiny dots (just like they appear to naked eye). I am confused what step I am missing here. Or it it possibility that the eye piece is a defected piece? Please help!! Thanks,Neha

Stars will always appear as points. It is not possible to magnify them enough to see them as disks because they are all extremely far away. A telescope will however show you stars and other objects that are too dim to see with the naked eye.You will be able to see the planets as disks, and even features on the planets, such as the bands on Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and the phases of Venus, and also moons around some planets. There are other objects that will show more detail when magnified, such as nebula. You will be able to see a lot of craters and other detail on the Moon.Your problem is simply that you are not pointing the telescope at these objects. This seems to be one of those telescopes that "automatically" finds objects, but these so called "go to" scopes only do this when they are set up properly. I can't say what step(s) you have missed, but clearly even if the scope thinks it is pointed at the moon, if you can't see the moon, it is NOT pointed there. The Moon will fill the field of view even with the least powerful eyepiece. If you are seeing stars as points, then the eyepiece is focussed and working properly.

Bushnell voyager AN-78-9565

Not worth repairing-- a new focuser for your telescope would cost as much or more than the telescope-- unless you can find a discarded telescope of the same model..... for parts.

Can't see object with 6450 Telescope

You cannot use high power in those small telescopes. Only use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it. I know the box said 600 power--- it was a complete LIE! The maximum magnification is 50 times aperture. You probably have something like a 2 inch lens. So 100 power is the maximum usable power.Next time buy a telescope similar to this one:

Hey guys! My brothers chipped in to get me a telescope for my birthday. It's a celestron sky prodigy 70. I took it out a few times with zero experience except for what I picked up from reading the owner manual. Please excuse my language as I do not know any common terminology nor am I very good at trig but I at least know the terms relating to math( if thats what it really is talking about). So, when I look through the lens I get a nice sharp and crisp image with the factory provided lens. I know this is an entry level telescope but I want more magnification. So I bought an x-cel lx 2x Barlow lens and a 24mm-8mm zoom lens. I know the max magnification is 165x and the focal length is 700 so that puts my strongest eye piece at a little over 4mm meaning a 5mm is pretty much what I'll get out of it. I tried the Barlow and the zoom lens a smidge over 8 (9 I hope it was at) and the image is very soft. Then again I am in Los Angeles and looking out of my window through a fairly heavy marine layer. But the image comes out sharp if I use my factory lens, or just the zoom, or my already provided 24mm with the Barlow or the zoom at a lower magnification with the Barlow. My provided 9mm with the Barlow produces a blurred image and I tried to focus but it still seems blurry at best. I think I'm safe to say a 9mm on a 2x Barlow is still within the max effective range of zoom? I'm wondering if I shouldn't expect much out of the telescope or if I should return either the Barlow or the zoom lens or both and get some higher quality object specific lens instead. Or maybe I'm not focusing correctly? Or a zoom should not be used on a Barlow? Any insight would be very helpful.

Hi, I can see you'r statring a interesting journey in amateur astronomy. Which can be really amazing but also disappointing, because usually people are expecting too much (specially after viewing beautiful astronomy pictures on internet).Before we go back to your question lets go over some basics here:Your telescope has a F10 aperture (Focal lenght / Diameter).So to be able to see the maximum amount of details from it, the smallest eyepiece you need is a 10mm (eyepiece mm = to f number of thetelescope).Then it's easy to find the maximum useful magnification: 700mm (focal lenght) / 10mm (eyepiece) = 70x Ok but why does the manufacturer say that it can be at a max of 170x... they are not really lying, if you get a smaller eyepiece it will make the image bigger but will show no additional details than a 10mm one. But the image being bigger it can make details easier to see.That for the questions about magnification an image quality.The more pieces you put between you eye and the telescope mirror, the dimmer and less contrasty the image will be. Especially after you go higher that the maximum useful magnification.Hope this helps. And enjoy wathching the stars and planets, it is a always a beautiful sight.
