First NEVER buy another telescope from Toys R Us ------- we get the most complaints on this telescope brand.
1. Find a nearby Astronomy club and have the members help you with the scope.
2. This is what is called a REFLECTOR style telescope. Many beginners setup this telescope BACKWARDS. The large mirror is on the bottom of the scope-- and the eyepiece and focuser is on the UP end of the scope near the front on the side of the tube. Like this picture- http://www.myfirstscope.com/reflector.html
3. Take the scope outside during the day time -- put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object.
+ Sorry that is an off brand imported telescope. Never heard of that brand.
However, there are basically 3 styles of telescopes, a REFRACTOR, a REFLECTOR(that has mirrors), and an SCT with both a front corrector plate and a mirror.
You probably have either a refractor or a reflector. Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals- lokk under the 4.5 inch Reflector heading, or the Refractor heading for one that is similar to your scope. They all assemble and are used in the same way.
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: http://www.telescope.com/control/dobsonians/classic-dobsonian-telescopes
You will not find a manual. However you have a reflector that is mounted on an equatorial mount. Meade has a very similar telescope and maintains a web site for all of their telescopes. Look under REFLECTOR heading for one that is similar to your telescope. They all assemble in a similar fashion.
this one is very similar: http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/Meade4500.pdf
