SOURCE: i am 9 can't see out of my galileo 700x60

there are 3 types of telescopes:
1)refractor, uses lenses
2)reflector, uses mirrors
3)catadioptric, uses both

try this and practice doing this during the day time, it's easier.

get your eyepiece, the one with the highest number on it (# mm); this is your lowest power eyepiece, always use this first (wider view and easier to see where you're pointing it), and place it in your telescope.

next, use the focusing knob to focus on a target (a faraway tree, lamp post, etc.). once you have it focused, and if you want to get a closer look, get the next highest number eyepiece and refocus on the target. this is how you change magnification.
if you have a barlow lens (2x or 3x) this will also change the magnification by 2x or 3x without having to buy other eyepieces, although you can still buy more.
put it together in this order:
eyepiece-->barlow lens-->telescope

use the star diagnal for land viewing.

if you have a reflector telescope,
the open part of the telescope tube next to the focuser points to your target. focus it the same as above.

oh, and sometimes, with refractors, you might have to use the
45 degree or 90 degree diagnal to focus the telescope.

and google how to use a telescope. there's nice observing tips :D

hope this helps :D

oh, and check out the moon at night. it's a very nice target.
best time to observe the moon is when it's not full.
you gotta check out the 'terminator' (area on the moon where the light and darkness is separated.

Does the moon have day and night? The same side always faces the earth so does it rotate on its own axis?

Day and night are determined by the sun, not the Earth. It's day when the sun is above the horizon, night when the sun is below the horizon. Even though the same side always faces the Earth, the sun is a different matter.
A lunar day and night is the same as a lunar month.

Ive bought a helios lunar cadet 2 telescope second hand with no users manual where can i get one

You cannot get one. Those small imported telescopes do not have manuals.

Go to Meade's web site and look under either the REFRACTOR or the 4.5 Inch REFLECTOR heading for a scope that is similar to your scope. They are all assembled and used in a similar fashion.

I have been given an ASPEN 700x60 Refractor Telescope with a box of tubes and two eyepieces but NO INSTRUCTIONS. Could anyone please tell me where I might get a manual for this or general starter book...

This is a very simple refractor style telescope the tubes are the tripod most likely.

Sorry no manuals available for that brand of scope.

What can you tell me about the Bushnell 420 x 60 Refractor Telescope?

No matter what the box says, 110x is the maximum power for a 60mm objective lens. The tripod is weak so stability is a problem. Fair for lunar observation and fair to poor for planetary viewing.
Go spend some money on a decent telescope A Celestron 114mm reflector is only about $150
