I need instructions for Jessops 800x80 astronomical telescope please


This is a refractor style telescope. You did not say if it is on an equitorial mount or an ALT AZ mount.

Read my TIPS on my profile page. You will not find a manual for that telescope. Objects in the night sky are tiny and many are very dim. Your scope has a VERY small field of view so the telescope must be pointed directly at the object or you will see nothing. Start by using the eyepiece with the largest number written on it. This is your lowest magnification and will have the widest field of view.

How do you get around the small field of view


You can't. This is a toy, not a real scope. The largest FOV is with your lowest power (biggest number) eyepiece.
If interested in wide field views, buy a GOOD telescope with a low focal ratio (below f/8)

No manual for telescope


You will not find a manual for this telescope. It is imported from overseas,

Here is a PICTURE of the telescope setup-
http://www.binoculars-uk.co.uk/acatalog/Farvision_300_70_series.html

This is a very small refractor style telescope. The 60mm aperture is about the same size as a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. The binoculars would have been better for Astronomy than the small scope, since the binoculars have a wider field of view.

Need a manual for tasco 56t sd don't know how to use it


Here is the manual:
http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:ANsyqHrcy1UJ:www.tasco.com/products/manuals/Tasco56TN-57TN-301051N-301004N-301005N.pdf+tasco+56tn+telescope+manual&hl=en&gl=us&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESiCAxnIsokVaYsESKffWHIqbDg7h3VF-AFm2iMHA2-oqpTo3PvVxpRjpalSqaBGlyl8BlkJZb049t8Ooz6AHNKb09ssXUCNiaRi4C2QND2EanE_73ROmmNcjC_KnD-RJOimbSpx&sig=AHIEtbT5bdFoxKc2OD1wUa-4xOHbz9fbqQ

This is a very small 50mm refractor telescope. The same aperture as a pair of 10x50mm binoculars, which would have been better for viewing sky objects. The maximum possible magnification is about 100 power (50 times aperture of 2 inches).

The field of view is very small you must be pointed directly at the sky object to see it. This is why we recommend a pair of binoculars as your first telescope. Binoculars have a wider field of view which makes finding things easier for the beginner.

How do you mount an ext 90 telescope (meade) to its tripod (ext field tripod). both are unused out of the box


There are two holes in the base of the telescope that match up with the two thumb screws on the tripod. It's easier if you lift up the base of the tripod a little using the latitude scale shaft.

Read the manual front to back before you use the scope.

Bushnell 114mm reflector telescope, can't see a thing


Probably NOT actually pointed directly at the moon-- you should have moved it around a little -- the moon was probably just outside the field of view through the eyepiece. ........................ telescope must be pointed DIRECTLY at the sky object-- also use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it=== this gives the LOWEST magnification..... and a slightly wider field of view.

Autostar software


Check the operating manual for the camera - you may be saving the image with the wrong selections. Most astronomical cameras have 'dark field' and 'flat field' exposures that are used together to compensate for sensor and telescope variations. The 'dark field' is to find hot pixils and the 'flat field' is to get the uniformity of the telescope/camera combination. Together, they are used to correct the image and produce a final image.
