: I borrowed a Magicon 2000 telescope which is apparently broken. It's a reflector telescope. When looking at the moon, you caqn hust see a uniform white blur across the entire view. It looks like a blank sheet of paper. Any ideas what could be wrong?

may i suggest that you either adjust the colimation(sic) of the optics, there are many instruments avaiable to check this, usually a good one for a relativley low amount of money would be a colimating eyepiece.
