SOURCE: 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).

Use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

I have a newtonian telescope 76mm with SR4, H12.5 and H20. I have aligned the crosses up and can see through the viewfinder but nothing through the eye piece. Ive placed all the other lenses into the eye...


YOU MUST align the small finder scope with the main tube.

Point the scope at a distant object like the top of a telephone pole. GET the top in the center of the eyepiece in the main scope.

Then without moving the scope-- adjust the cross-hairs in the small finder scope so they line up on the same object.

It is NOT in focus.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. Turn the focusing knob until you get a sharp image in the eyepiece.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- try again. You may need to make several turns of the focuser knob to get into focus.

I cant see. am i putting it together wrong. the instructions


If your telescope looks like the picture, first put the "L" shaped diagonal into the telescope, and then the eyepiece with the LARGEST number on it.

Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object. Your first night time target should be the moon when it is less the 3/4 full.

CELESTRON 127EQ faulty magnification


It won't increase viewing power by hundreds of time but it should be able to show you a close up view of the moon and planets where they look closer (or with the moon, parts of it look closer). When you say it looks further away, something is quite wrong as you know. It sounds like the eye piece is backwards in the mount? Can't imagine what else would make it smaller. Also can't imagine you could even get it in backwards. I have a scope by Meade that is essentially the same Newtonian design. Best of luck.
