i just got my first telescope a meade lightbridge 8".
I took it outside at around 9pm for first light and i put the 26mm qx wide angle eyepiece, point it at a pretty bright star and nothing shows up in the eyepiece. am i doing something wrong?
i tried different spots and nothing. the weird thing is when i use the other eyepiece i got the 14mm 5000 series plossl and i see stars.
also the focus seems wrong. i have to extend it all the way out to see clearly. that doesnt seem right either.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
