Good eyepieces?

Hi everyone!

I'm currently having a problem with my brand new out-the-box Saxon ED80 telescope (focal length 600mm) and finding the right eyepieces for it. I have bought a Saxon Plossls 10mm eyepiece for the scope and I cannot get anything to focus. Im not sure why this is happening...Ive done some research on correct eyepieces for certain telescopes and it should be fine?

Please help

Warm regards
Oliver

Your scope is prob designed to focus with one, try pulling the eyepiece at the edge of the focuser & see if you can gain focus
