You will not find a manual for many of the smaller telescope brands-- however Meade maintains a web site for all of their manuals. Go there and find one that is similar to your style of telescope and down load it for free.

SOURCE: wont focus correctly

TOO MUCH magnification. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow. Try Jupiter with lower magnification.

SOURCE: Hi bought my hubby a TASCO 302911 for Christmas,

Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object.

You are NOT focused properly. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. Turn the focus knob back and forth slowly until the image is in sharp focus.

The only thing fragile are the main primary mirror and the smaller secondary mirror anything else can be cleaned with Windex and or Pledge.

To learn how to clean the mirrors read this:

http://www.astro-tom.com/tips_and_advice/cleaning_optics.htm#article1
The mirror should be VERY dirty or leave it alone.

You must do this gently or you will scratch the mirror. Once the mirror is clean you will need to re-collimate the scope. Watch this video:

302911 manual? bought the tele scope about 6 years ago,now my grandson wants to use it but I lost the manual ...can you help please


You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals. Look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one that is similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.
