I have a telescope that has been in the box for a while. My young daughter has taken an interest in Astronomy. However, when I set up the scope it seems off and I think one of the lenses is in the wrong place. Is there someone who could hel me figure this out? I'd love to be able to get my daughter engaged in astronomy while she is showing interest.

I second Joe's response. There are different types of optical configurations, and even among the basic types of telescopes, differences among manufacturers. We'll gladly offer advice or help, but we need more information. Pictures of the scope would help, too.
Star parties during the winter months are few and far between, and even then with little notice, but be on the lookout for our public star parties where you could bring your daughter and telescope, and get firsthand advice from some of our experienced astronomers.
Best of luck, and yes, get your daughter hooked on science while she is young.
