SOURCE: where can i get the

You cannot get a manual for that small telescope being sold by Toys R Us.

The manual would only have assembly instructions it will NOT tell you how to use the scope to see objects in the night sky.

I want to use my telescope for searching the horizon but the image is upside down am i missing a lense?


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. You can buy an "erecting prism diagonal" for terrestrial viewing like the ones shown on this web site:

I can't see anything out of the large scope


Use the 20mm to view an object (building, tree etc.) far away during the daytime. Align the finderscope to the object.
To view the moon, leave the scope out to equalize the temperature for at least 1/2 hour. Use the 20mm and no barlow. Point the scope towards the moon by sighting along the barrel of the scope, then use the finder to zero in on the moon. You may then switch to the 4mm eyepiece. for a more magnified view of the moon. You will have to keep moving the telescope because of the earth's rotation. The higher the magnification, the more you will have to adjust the scope. Because of the cheap finderscope, finding the planets will be difficult. Best to always sight down the length of the scope to get you close. The planets will be small and indistinct.
This is not a astronomical telescope! May be used for views of the moon but the cheap mount is not suitable for other planets. Max power would be 225x NOT 420x as advertised. The erecting prism is for terrestrial use only.
Nothing discourages an amateur astronomer more than a toy store telescope. My advise would be to use this scope for nature watching and go buy a good telescope (Meade, Celestron, Orion etc.). Even Those 60mm refractors are superior to this! A descent scope would cost a minimum of $200

All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's normal. If you want to use it for terrestrial viewing you can purchase an "erecting diagonal" like this:

This is a small 60mm refractor a very simple telescope. Not much bigger than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars.

Objects in the night sky are very tiny and many are very dim. You must learn the night sky. Buy several good books like "turn Left at Orion", or "Nightwatch".

I need a user manual . Where can I find one


This is a small refractor style telescope on an equitorial mount.

You will not find a manual for that specific scope, but Meade maintains manuals for all their telescopes. Your scope is very similar to this one:

http://www.meade.com/manuals/m285/index.html

I suspect you do not know how to polar align the telescope. This article will explain polar alignment which must be done to use that type of telescope mount.

We have a lexicon astronomical telescope d=60mm, f=700mm. We have no instructions as to how to set up the telescope and the tripod. Please assist.


You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade might have one similar to your telescope that you can use.

Look under REFRACTOR

That is a 60mm refractor style telescope on an equitorial mount. Meade has one that is very similar. They all go together in a similar fashion.

Look under REFRACTOR and download a Meade manual that is similar to your telescope.

http://www.meade.com/manuals/m285/index.html This one looks very similar.
