How do i adjust the clarity of the image?

This is a 60mm refractor-- not much bigger than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. The maximum magnification will be about 80 power.

Use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it and DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Applying too much magnification simply makes the image bigger and fuzzier! You will not be able to see LARGE IMAGES of the planets in a 60mm telescope; but you will be able to see them.

This is a small refractor telescope. Sorry no manuals-- BUT Meade scopes has a web site with all of their manuals. Look under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your scope. They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

Cannot focus a Meade Refractor "Electronic Digital" series

All of Meade's manuals are listed here--

Take it outside during the day time-- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope--- this is the LOWEST magnification.

Point it at a distant object and practice focusing-- the moon should be your first night time object.
