SOURCE: How do I set up voicemail in merlin 410 system?

MFurrer is right... the voicemail unit was made by Voysys. It is known by several names: Merlin Classic Mail, vp100, model 100.
Some telcomm suppliers who deal in used or refurb equipment MAY still have one or you can contact King Technologies (they own the rights to this unit). Either of these is likely to give you "sticker shock" ($1000+). Ebay is about the only cheap place to find one, but there are always buzzards circling over these (myself included). If you find one, make sure it includes the power supply. The units on ebay have several typical problems: bad hard drive, no power supply or deleted admin mailbox. All these should be deal-breakers unless you're planning on buying several for parts. The deleted Admin box is the only one that can't be discovered until the unit is attached to phone sys. It is fixable but the people who know how don't seem to want to share this knowledge.

How the specifications of telescopes is read

First you would look at the construction, a reflector or a refractor.

The first has at least 2 mirrors in it, and comes in several sub-types. The cheapest to begin with is a Newtonian, very cost effective. You can recognise these as having the eyepiece at the front end of the tube.

Newtonians however have to be optically aligned (collimated) every so often to give a sharp image. This is simple enough when you learn how, but some find it a pain.

Refractors have no mirrors, only lenses, and you can recognise these as having the eyepiece at the rear of a longish tube. They don\'t need regular collimation. The better ones have more lenses in them, and in larger sizes are very expensive.

The next spec you see is the aperture, or diameter of the optics. It is the diameter of the main mirror or lens, and governs the light gathering power of the scope. If you live in the city, there is no point to having a huge scope, as it only gathers lots of light pollution. If away from towns, a large scope will pick up faint nebula. 100 - 150mm (4"-6") is a good starter size.

Then you see the focal length (FL) quoted. This is the length of the light path in the scope. In a reflector it is folded up, and can be quite long without having a bulky tube (OTA). In a refractor it is straight, and so is limited in amateur scopes to about 1200mm.

The focal length governs the magnification you see, but only in partnership with the eyepiece (EP). These are interchangeable

and each has its own focal length. The magnification is the scope FL divided by the EP FL. So a 1200mm FL scope with a 25mm EP gives a magnification of x48, which does not sound much, but is good for a sweeping view of the Milky Way. EPS range down to 4mm commonly, so there is wide choice.

There is not space here to discuss the mounts, but start with a robust AltAzimuth (AZ), say a Skywatcher AZ4. Another popular mount is the Dobsonian, confined to Newtonian reflectors.

I\'d urge you not to get a cheap department store scope. These are absolute junk with plastic lenses and poor construction. Depending on budget, get an affordable refractor first up, (so you don\'t have to fiddle with it much) with some Plossl type EPs (cost effective) like a

4500 orbitor telescope

Download the manual in the link below. It is for the Orbitor 6000 which is a 6" Netownian Reflector telescope on an equatorial mount. Your telescope may have a Alta-Zimuth (AZ) mount instead, then click on the second link for the Celestron 114AZ. Although the telescopes are different from yours, the basic parts are very much similar and these manuals could be of help to you.

I am a beginner looking for a good telescope. I am currently looking at a Celestron Skywatcher telescope. There are three lenses which comes with it: super wide 10mm. lens as well as a wide angle 25 mm....

Magnification is the LEAST important property of a telescope. Quality optics and aperture are much more important.

The best bang for the buck is a reflector style telescope ion a Dobsionian mount. You get the most aperture for the least amount of money. Like this one--

The scope above has 6 inches of aperture and is mounted on a very stable alt az mount called a Dobsonian mount.

Where to find them in sri lanka?

First I would not buy that very small 60mm telescope. You would be better off buying a pair of 10x 50mm binoculars and a good star chart.

Check out the Skywatcher brand of telescopes which are manufactured in Europe--

Celestron colmination

There should be 2 sets of adjustments to be done. The first is to sight from the eyepiece holder, and see if the diagonal has the back mirror centered - don't be concerned about the off-center of the main mirror. Once the diagonal is centered, then use the adjuster screws to bring the main mirror into line. Adjust first one way then the next (in or out). When done, your eye should be centered in both mirrors. Then align the finder, and away you go.
