  1. Thank you, I will see what I can do about it.
  2. I have gone and lined up my finder to my telescope, so that shouldn't be the problem. As I try to focus in and out, the stars and smaller objects in the sky will not focus into a single, clearly defined point. The best I can focus it makes the star into a hollow triangle.
  3. Yes when I do that it comes in and out of focus.
  4. Hi all, I'm new to astronomy as a hobby. I got my first telescope, the celstron Firstscope, for Christmas and I have been getting less than satisfactory results. I've tried looking at random stars, Mars and the moon. The stars and Mars look like little triangles when using both the included 20mm and 10mm eyepieces. The moon has given me the best results, but even that barely focuses. I've looked at some people's advice on leaving the scope out for it to adjust to the temperatures but that hasn't worked for me. Is there anything I can do? Thanks.
