Twinstar 700mm x 70mm Telescope

Where can I find a manual for this telescope. I just bought it used and have never used a telescope before. Also where is a good place on the internet for beginners to look for information regarding using telescopes. Also who actually makes Twinstar? I have heard that Bushnell does is this true?

Manual for an edu science telescope F=700mm


You will not find a manual for that telescope which is sold by Toys R Us. However Meade and Bushnell both maintain web sites with all of their telescope manuals--- here:

http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html Meade manuals

http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html Bushnell

Look around the web sites under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your telescope. They all assemble and are used the same way.

We bought a Rokinon 500mm X 70mm Refractor Telescope for our father and he said it never worked properly. Now that he's passed, we cannot find the manual to ensure he put it together properly. In looking...


Yes you should be able to see the moon and several of the planets. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope (put the diagonal in first and then put the eyepiece into the diagonal). DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Just too much magnification for a 70mm telescope.

You will not find a manual for that brand BUT Meade has manuals for all of their telescopes. Look under the header--- REFRACTOR-- on the page below for a manual similar to your telescope.

Who makes twinstar telescopes and how do i find


I suggest avoiding the Twinstar line of telescopes. These are sold by Taximarketer who sells a line of disappointing scopes including the Baytronix 150/1400. It is best to avoid Ebay unless you really know your stuff.

One reason is the lack of directions-- NONE!

However Meade telescopes maintains a web site with manuals for their telescopes. Look around the page and find one similar to your scope and download the manual for free.

Instructions for telescope assembly


I really don't understand the actual problem? You have the manual-- have you assembled the scope according to the manual?

If you have --- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope-- this is your LOWEST magnification. (Never use the 2x or 3x barlow that comes with these small telescopes -- it is useless-- just too much magnification. )

Now go outside during the daytime and point the telescope at a distant land object and practice focusing-- the moon should be your first target at night. Spend a little time during the day and line up the small finder scope which is usually mounted on top of the tube --- with the main telescope. Once they are lined up you can use the finder like a gun sight to point the telescope.
