Most of these small telescopes do mot have manuals--

However Meade maintains a web site for all of it's telescopes that have manuals-- look around the Meade manual web site and find one that is similar to your scope-- and use it to learn about that style of telescope-- manuals are free for download.

4500 orbitor telescope

Download the manual in the link below. It is for the Orbitor 6000 which is a 6" Netownian Reflector telescope on an equatorial mount. Your telescope may have a Alta-Zimuth (AZ) mount instead, then click on the second link for the Celestron 114AZ. Although the telescopes are different from yours, the basic parts are very much similar and these manuals could be of help to you.

Need manual for setting up orbitor 3200 700mm telescope

Do you have a manual? If your telescope is a refractor (long narrow tube with a lens at the front and eyepiece focuser at the other end) then maybe the following manual for the Orbitor 1208ss will be helpful.
If your telescope is a reflector - has a mirror at on end and a focuser on the side of the tube at the other end then maybe the following manual for the Orbitor 6000 (Model 9000) will be helpful.
Good Luck,

I need setup instructinos on an orbitor 2010 telescope

Sorry no manuals for that imported telescope.

However several other telescope companies have "manual" web sites. Find one that is similar to your scope. They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion. Here is Bushnell's web site with manuals:

Where can I find parts for my orbitor ts 5000 telescope?

You will not be able to find parts for your small telescope. However for common parts such as screws and bolts your local hardware store can probably help you.

What does it mean when FEE is in the view finder

FEE means that your lens is not set to the smallest aperture setting. If you are using your camera's auto-focus mode, the lens must be set to the smallest aperture setting which, on your lens, is probably f22 (the smallest aperture is the largest number). Once you set the lens aperture, you should slide the aperture lock to the locked position. The aperture lock is located just right of your largest setting f3.5. This slider should line up with the orange line. To verify that the latch is engaged, try to change the aperture by rotating the aperture ring. In the locked position, the ring will not turn.

Orbitor 4000

This is a normal condition; lenses do invert images just as your own eye does. Even our eyes receive and invert anything we look at but our brains invert them again so we never notice the 'problem' you are having with your new telescope.
