There are a number of books on the subject; "How to make a telescope" by Texerau, "Standard handbook for Telescope Making" and others. Try William Bell for a selection of books.

Purchase a 263/525 Reflector Telescope put it together, took off the eyepiece lens caps, but still unable to see anything. Does the end filter of telescope need to be removed?


The picture in your post is NOT a reflector style telescope:

This is a reflector:

Notice that the eyepiece is in the FRONT side of the scope. Take the front lens cap off-- the primary mirror is on the BOTTOM of the tube.

Can't see anything and don't know which end is which.


You must have a REFLECTOR style scope with a MIRROR in the bottom. The focuser end is the UP end -- the mirror is on the GROUND end.

You probably have it mounted backwards.

It should look like this:

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:

How much does a tasco 302675 telescope cost/


It does not matter what it costs! Do not buy a Tasco telescope. Very poorly made, some even have plastic eyepieces and plastic lenses!

Check out this web site and others for a better, higher quality telescope.

I would also suggest that you look at a Dobsonian mounted reflector like this one:

Can't figure out how to put the eye-pieces (3) on our Selsi Telescope 335x.


All eyepieces go into the FOCUSER end of the telescope. You never said if this is a REFRACTOR or a REFLECTOR style telescope.

On a refractor you have a lens in the front and the focuser in the back.

On a reflector the focuser is on the SIDE of the telescope near the front end.

The diagonal goes in first --- and the eyepiece goes into the diagonal -- if this is a refractor style telescope. Here is a picture of the DIAGONAL.

I WISH TO SET UP A TASCO 40-114675 TELESCOPE CAN YOU SUPPLY INSRUCTION MANUAL


You will not find a manual for that small REFLECTOR style telescope. However the picture above-- that you show in your question shows the telescope mounted BACKWARDS actually pointed toward the ground!

Apparently FIXYA also does not know how to set up a reflector style telescope. The eyepiece and focuser end is on the UP end of the telescope with the mirror on the bottom end of the telescope.

Here is a manual for a MEADE brand telescope probably very similar to your telescope.

I purchased a science tech 675 X reflector telescope and need an instruction manual. Where could I download one?


This is a Fisher Price toy telescope. You will not find an operational manual.

Return the scope, it's considered junk. After you return it, consider a reflector on a Dobsonian mount as your first telescope. Like this one:

and read my telescope TIPS on my profile page.

Troubleshooting with a reflector telescope


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object.

Hi does anyone know anything about f1000114 sturnam short tube reflector telescope thankyou


Never heard of that brand. But all newtonian/reflector style telescopes work the same way.

Look around the Meade telescope manual web site for a reflector scope similar to your telescope.

Look under REFLECTORS-
