SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I purchased a science tech 675 X reflector

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.

This is considered a toy telescope. You will not find a manual.

SOURCE: need owners manual for Venture RX-7 telescope

You will not find a manual. BUT you do not need one.

This is a very simple reflector telescope on an Equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to properly use the scope. Read my TIP in my profile section about aligning an Equatorial mount.

The major steps are:

Align the small finder scope with the main telescope tube on a distant object.

Set the Declination axis to your Latitude.

Align the main tube with the axis of the mount.

Point the entire mount toward the North Star Polaris.

Use the fine RA & DEC knobs to center Polaris in the eyepiece.

See this web site and my tips--
http://www.astronomy.net/articles/4/polaralign.html

This is why we NEVER recommend an EQ mount to a beginner. Polar Alignment just introduces one more FRUSTRATION to someone new to the Astronomy hobby.

The eyepieces simply go into the focuser. The Larger the number written on the eyepiece the LESS the magnification.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece with the largest number.

The manual WILL NOT tell you how to find those small dim objects in the sky. It's just assembly instructions.It does not tell you how to become an amateur astronomer.

Locate a local Astronomy club and seek advice from the members, who will be glad to help you with your telescope.

You never said what reflector you own? or what type of MOUNT it is on? However here is Meade's web site with manuals-- look under the 4.5 inch reflector heading for one that is similar to your scope. They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

Sorry these are imported REFLECTOR style telescopes on a small equatorial mount.

No manuals exist for this exact scope but there are many just like it-- here is Meade telescope's manual for almost the same identical telescope.

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:

Missing a piece of my RX-9 +venture


You are missing the 2 inch to 1.25 inch adapter, that fits into the focuser so you can use 1.25 inch eyepieces.

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:

I'm simply looking for the assembly instructions for the +venture RX-7 reflector telescope. I purchased the telescope back in December and just opened it now to find no assemply instructions or product...


Even though it's considered a TOY, its still small enough to be taken places easily. I feel its a step up from my binoculars. Yes its not my 10 in dob. but it will do.
