Susie,

I am not that experienced, but I can give you some help. First it sounds like you have a good scope. I am not familer with the model, but the company is well known.

Did you adjust the view finder in the day on a far away object such as the top of a radio tower? You should get the object centered in the eyepiece and than check the view finder. The finder should have some type of adjustments screws that you can turn to move it around so that the object that is centered in the eyepiece is centered in the view finder. This may take some time.

When you go out in the night site on the moon using the lowest powered eye piece you have. Probibly a 30 mm or a 20 mm. SLOWLY turn the focus knob till the object comes into focus. You should be able to get the moon in focus.

I hope that helps. If not continue to contact this site, I'm sure others can be of more help than I am.

Good Luck,

lenny
