Konus MotorMax-90 Telescope

Home accident:
My Konus MotorMax-90 Telescope
tipped over and fell while on its tripod.
The plastic base of the telescope where one screws it onto the tripod broke. I need to buy a new one... as it is unrepairable.
How can I get a replacement?

Where can I ontain a copyof the original User's Manual please?


From a Konus dealer-- however this appears to be a simple refractor telescope on an equatorial mount. ANY manual for a similar telescope can be used--

Here are all of meade's manuals. Look under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your scope.

Ahoo.comI've got a Star Tracker Telescope from Toys R Us. Although I have the instruction manula I cannot get the telescope to attach to the tri-pod, wondering if I am missing a peice....or is it one...


It probably just screws onto the tripod-- this is a very simple telescope. Read myu tips on my profile page-- take it back to Toys R Us if it will not attach-- and never buy that brand again. We receive the most complaints with that telescope.

I have a new-in-box Konus Motormax 130mm 1796 I got about 3 years ago (it was described as a spotting scope) from a supposed Konus dealer on ebay. He then sold me a $100 Celestron tripod for it claiming...


Contact a regular DEALER for this scope and see if they have one. You may just have to look in a well stocked hardware store for something you can use to mount the scope on the tripod.

How do set up a konus 800 60mm f/13 refractor telescope and operate it


This is a small refractor style telescope on a photo style tripod.

Put the small finder scope on the top of the main tube, put the diagonal into the back of the scope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal.

Take the scope outside during the day time and line up the finder scope with the main tube on a distant object-- practice focusing on the same object.

Read my TIPS on my profile page.

I need a manual for the konusmotor 90 telescope...mine is 5 years old, the gold colored on. Can I get one free on line? Dave


There are no manuals on-line for that imported telescope. Locate a local Astronomy club and the members will help you with your telescope.

Will not sit up straight


Not for that telescope. However you may find what you need at a well stocked local hardware store. The ALTITUDE adjuster bolts are loose or stripped.

The DEC setting circle on my Konusmotor 90 is not fixed


This is a small equatorial mount. The setting circles are very inaccurate on these small telescopes -- you will NOT be able to find anything in the sky, even if you set them properly. Sorry.

You bought an equatorial mounted telescope which is never recommended for a beginner. However I have posted instructions for aligning the mount on Polaris on my profile page in the TIPS section. Read those instructions. You must first align the scope on the North star in order to use the telescope.

How do you mount an ext 90 telescope (meade) to its tripod (ext field tripod). both are unused out of the box


There are two holes in the base of the telescope that match up with the two thumb screws on the tripod. It's easier if you lift up the base of the tripod a little using the latitude scale shaft.

Read the manual front to back before you use the scope.

Konus 1730


This is a simple refractor telescope-- PUT the diagonal into the focuser and then put the eyepiece into the diagonal-- that's all there is too it! :)

Practice focusing during the day time on a distant object.
