Barska is one of the many brands stamped on Asian made optics. Many of the models they sold were sold by Celestron and others. Go to the Celestron web sit and poke around in the download archives.for manuals and I'm sure you can find a manual that covers a model similar to your Barska. Start with the FirstScope series.

Their is a lot of excellent astronomy freeware available, just google for it.

I have a Barska telescope. Model: 60800. Diam: 60mm Focal length: 800 mm. I think I put it together correctly, but I can not see anything through it... just black. Yes, I have taken the cap off the...

The power of the scope will be the focal length of the main objective (yours is 800mm) divided by the focal length of the eyepiece, so a 9mm eyepiece will give a higher magnification (and be dimmer and harder to focus and find objects) than a 20mm eyepiece. It is usual to have two or three different focal length eyepieces for viewing different objects.

Starting out, you want to use the lowest power, so the highest number, eyepiece. Do NOT use the Barlow lens if one came with the scope. Try it out during the day (but never point a telescope anywhere near the Sun). This will make it easier to find the focus point. There is a very wide range of movement in the focus mechanism, because different eyepieces focus at different points, but the actual focus range for any eyepiece will be a small part of the overall range afforded by the focusing mount.

It is unlikely that the finder scope will be much use in pointing the telescope until you adjust it to precisely line up with the main scope. Most manuals recommend that you do this in daylight, by pointing the scope at an object on the horizon and adjusting the finder to match. Once you have a tree or mountain peak in the center of the main scopes image, you can then adjust the screws around the finder scope to get the crosshairs centered on the same object. It is very difficult to do this job in the dark, especially as objects in the sky are constantly on the move.

Remember that astronomical telescopes usually show an upside down image. There is a good reason for this- erecting the image needs more bits of glass in the light path, which reduces the amount of light and increases aberrations. Even if this is only slight, astronomers prefer to avoid it, and they don't really care which way up the Moon or Jupiter appear. It is possible to fit an erecting prism or eyepiece to most astronomical telescopes, and some of them come with one.

I just purchased a used Barska 7600 telescope. It came with no paper work. Where can I get information on how to use it

You mean a BRAND new telescope and no manual-- or did you buy it used?

Sorry but no manuals for that small telescope on the internet. However Meade maintains a website with all of their telescopes lokkunder th refractor or reflector HEADER for one similar to your telescope.

Manual for barska telescope 114900

You will not find a manual for that scope. BUT! It's a small equatorial mounted REFLECTOR telescope. Meade telescopes has a similar model and a manual. They all assemble and are used in the same way.

Look on this web site under REFLECTOR for a scope similar to yours and download the manual and print it.

Your scope should be very similar to this one:

Swift 60900 manual

You did not say if this is a refractor? or a reflector--- however- MEADE maintains a web site with all the manuals for either type -- they are pretty much the same between all brands-- look here under the Refractor and the Reflector section for a manual that is similar to your telescope-

Most of the manuals have a section on how to use a telescope
