Meade Telescope

how to get a better view with meade telescope model# 50az-p?

we cant get a good veiw on the telescope and we were really excited to get this for the family but there;s no good veiw. the most we see is the moon and still thats just a huge ball.

Its a 50mm telescope - you're not going to see much.

Its possible you don't have the telescope set up properly.... They usually ship these kind of scopes with 3 eyepieces, a barlow lens, and a diagonal.

Throw the barlow and the 2 eyepieces with the lowest sizes (in mm) away. They should have given you an eyepiece in the range of 20-25mm - use that one and the star diagonal... and if you can find a 'real' eyepiece in the range of 25 mm (like a Plossl) for $15 bucks, pick it up and throw away the eyepiece that came with the scope.

Sorry to be so brutally honest, but I personally find these scopes a scam. For the same price, you can pick up a dobsonian telescope in the range of 8 inches, rather than 50mm (2 inches)!!
