I have the Explore Scientific ED80 Telescope and I was kind of saddened to realise that it came with a 1.25 inch eyepiece socket and a 90° diagonal and not an eyepiece itself. Luckily, I’d also ordered an Explore Scientific 52° Series 3mm Eyepiece. I pointed my telescope at Jupiter, put in my eyepiece and excitedly peered through it. Nothing. I repositioned the scope. Still nothing. I tried it with and without the diagonal, tried to focus it to no avail. It was all just black. While on the topic, looking at The Moon with this eyepiece resulted it a kind of pure white thing. You know the kind you’d see in a microscope where you would see what appeared to be hair (or lines) and those floaters you see on your eyes sometimes. I would appreciate it so much if someone could help. I’d been looking forward to this stargazing session for so long but I was only met with disappointment.
Note: I don’t have a finderscope but I have a guidescope. Also my mount does have GoTo capabilities but I currently don’t have sight of Polaris or enough stars to make an alignment.
