How to operate


This is a reflector style scope with a large mirror in the bottom, and a small secondary mirror underneath the focuser. The focuser is on the UP end of the tube as the picture shows in your question.

Simply insert the eye[pieces into the hole on the focuser and turn the knob left or right until the image comes to focus. Practice during the day time on a distant object starting with the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

Read this--
http://texasastro.org/telescope.php about the types of telescopes.

Objects in the night sky are tiny and many of them are very dim-- the scope must be pointed directly at them or you will not see anything.

We left our telescope out on a covered deck. Now the mirror is badly pitted. can you grind it? or does it need replaced? (deep space hunter 10 ")


The mirror must be recoated -- the pitting is in the coating NOT in the glass--Google mirror recoating.

My Harding Deep Space Hunter 10 will not sit still. It is constantly tilting up with the slightest touch or tap. Any thoughts?


I have never seen one of these--

can you NOT tighten up the Altitude knob tension by adding some teflon washers or felt washers?

The holder for the sighting scope that is mounted to the main tube of the telescope with two screws is broken and i need to replace the holding part that has two screws so that I can use the sighting scope


I would just replace the entire finder scope with a better quality-- here is one retailer that sells replacement finder scopes:

I need a manual for the deep space hunter 6 inch purchased around 2002. model number DSH-6


Why would you need a manual for a simple Dobsonian reflector telescope.

The Company does not exist-- anymore.

A manual only showed how to assemble the telescope, it DOES NOT tell you how to USE the telescope to find objects in the sky.

This is a good beginner telescope by the way. Here is how to get started using it:

1. During the day time align the small finder scope and the big scope on the same distant target. Then you can use the finder scope to locate and POINT the main tube to objects in the night sky.

Also during the day put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. This is your LOWEST magnification. Practice focusing on a distant object. The image will be upside down--- this is perfectly normal. Nothing is wrong with the scope.

The moon should be the first target at night.

I have what looks like a silver metallic disk that fell out of the scope and I can't find where it might go. I can't seem to focus it.


If this is a reflector telescope, did the small secondary mirror located beneath the focuser hole fall out?

This mirror sends the light from the main primary mirror out through the focuser. Watch this video to get an idea of how this works and how to replace it.
