How to use meade telescope 60AZ-T ?


The whole unit is a "scope". What you mean is the objective lens to the eyepiece lens. Usually the wide end is pointed at the object or scantily clad person that you wish to view, and your eye is placed near the small diameter lens at the other end. If you have it reversed, it will work as a microscope.

The eye piece threads are stripped. This renders the telescope useless.


Eyepieces DO NOT have threads -- they slip into either the focuser or the diagonal depending on which scope type you own.

You MUST MEAN the focuser is stripped-- a new 60mm focuser assembly will cost you about $20-$30 if you can find one. Call Meade first here:
http://www.meade.com/support/index.html and see if they will sell you one. If not look around this web site:

Im getting a sensor failure message after the scope tries a level procedure, I tried leveling the scope by eye. but it does the same thing.


Contact Meade for repairs- they will probably want you to send the scope back.

I have a DS114 Electronic Digital Meade. I only


1 1/4 inch OD is a standard size for eyepieces. You should be able to buy eyepieces in other focal lengths at any shop that sells telescopes, or online. I found hundreds of them with a quick search on Amazon, some made by Meade.

I need eyes pieces by meade 60AZ-D


This is a very small 60mm refractor, not much bigger than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. Personally I would not spend any money on this; but would save up to buy a 6 inch or 8 in Dobsonian reflector scope like this one:

However read my TIP on my profile page about buying Accessories for a telescope. There are several links there where you can buy the .965 size eyepiece for your scope.

Where can I find out what parts I need for a telescope that was given to me? I know I need a new eye piece but I'm not sure what else


Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals here:
http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

Find your telescope and print off a manual. Meade may also be able to supple missing parts. Here is customer service:

Meade, model: 6600, 6", need instruction manual & eye pieces


Sorry about Meade's responses, but their website has a download section for the telescope manuals - you may not find one that matches exactly, as they produce hundreds of models, but one that is close should suffice. As for eyepieces, there are several good vendors out there; Orion Telescopes, Meridian etc. Just check the barrel size; either .965" (Japanese standard) or 1.25" (American standard).

Mirror fell out and broke I've got the 25 mm eye piece and lost the others


Not worth fixing-- next time you buy a telescope look at a small Dobsonian like this one--

or the 6 inch version of the same scope--
