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.

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.

I need an instruction manual


You will not find a manual for this small telescope. The manual only shows how to assemble the scope. It DOES NOT tell you how to use the telescope to find objects in the sky.

Buy this book from amazon.com or a bookstore:
"Turn Left at Orion"

Also locate a local astronomy club and attend their star parties and meetings.

Meade brand maintains a list of manuals for their telescopes. Look under the REFRACTOR or 4.5 inch REFLECTOR heading for one similar to your scope. They all assemble in the same way.

Throw it AWAY! You will never be able to use it as it yields to much magnification for that small aperture telescope. Use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

This is a small reflector style telescope. They all assemble the same way. I will give you a web link for a similar Meade brand scope that you can use to assemble your telescope.

I need to find a manual to assemble this telescope.


Meade has a web site with all of the manuals for their telescopes --- look around and find one that is similar in style to your telescope and use it to assemble your scope and learn about the different parts.

I think I already answered your question--- look here for a MEADE manual that is similar to your telescope-- they all pretty much assemble the same way---

Viewing saturn


The first step is knowing where Saturn is and when from your location.
Have you used the CD-Rom that comes with it to chart the sky from your location? If you don't have it, there are a couple of free programs you can download that will do this as well. Try www.stellarium.org
