    Yesterday I stumbled across my Sisters old Telescope while cleaning up and put it back together(somehow).

    When i tried looking through it I found that one of the mirrors inside needs to be adjusted because I saw both my eye and the wall through the viewer.


    If anybody can Help please leave a comment.


    If it helps I have an: "Infinity By Meade " Model D=114 F=900 f/8

    Your model # isn't your model #, just so you know.

    It all depends if it's a reflective or refracting telescope. If it's one, you could have a lens issue. If it's the other, could just be an eyepiece issue. Sounds reflective.

    Just get a pair of binoculars. You'll be able to see your hot neighbor just fine, and you'll be able to use both eyes :)

    The lens is in the wrong place most likely they have to face a certain way to get the right angle and views.
