I don't know how to use your telescope Please help me


We will need much more information-- what type of scope do you own? A refractor? a reflector?

And is it mounted on an altitude azimuth mount or an EQ - equatorial mount?

How to use Twinstar Atroquest 8 Reflector telescope? I bought this telescope for my daughters and it did not bring any guide to learn hou to use it.


This is a reflector style telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Take it outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

If it is on an EQ mount read my EQ mount tip on my profile page. The scope will need to be polar aligned in order to use it properly if the mount is an equatorial.

Model# 100501103 I need a new manual with assembley instructions. I purchasted the telescope several years ago. I now want to give it to my grandchildren but I can't find the instruction manual.


Sorry ut you will not find a manual for that small telescope. It's a reflector style telescope probably on an equatorial mount which must be polar aligned in order to be used.

Here is a Meade brand manual that is similar to your scope:

Need a manual or a phone number for the company


As you can see from the ONE review here:

http://www.dealtime.com/xPR-Fieldvision-Fieldvision-114-mm-Reflector

A manual does not exist for this imported telescope. This is just one of DOZENS of brands imported from China.

It is a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to be used.

Google

You will find hundreds of articles on how to use this telescope. Read my TIPS on my profile page and also read this web site:

I have a Swift short tube catadioptic equitorial reflector telescope Model # 856. It hasn't been usable since it was moved to a new location. It may be the mirror, I don't know. Who repairs these...


This is a small reflector style telescope on an EQ mount.

1. The mount must be polar aligned to Polaris

2. The scope may need to be collimated

Read my Equatorial mount TIP on my profile page that explains how to polar align.

and watch this video that explains collimation:

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

Your scope should be very similar to this one:

How would you rate +Venture RX-9 telescope?


If you read down this page there is a manual
http://cs.astronomy.com/asycs/forums/t/30807.aspx

This is a cheaply made in China reflector telescope. It is mounted on a small equatorial mount which is too small to support the tube. It will be very shaky. These scopes appear on Craigslist after the owner determines they are really just a "toy" telescope.

You can do much better for their $249 asking price. Look at a Dobsonian telescope like one of these.

6 inch telescope mirror, 50% larger than the Venture toy telescope
