The Celestron 114AZ-SR Newtonian Reflector is an *astronomy* telescope designed for looking at objects in the solar system, it is not designed to focus on nearby objects. If you are new to astronomy a great starting place is to look at the moon, this can help you get to know how the telescope works.
