SOURCE: I'm simply looking for the assembly instructions

This is considered a toy telescope. You will not find a manual.

SOURCE: Tasco Luminova Telescope 40-076420h

You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade maintains manuals for all of their telescopes, look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

SOURCE: How would you rate +Venture RX-9 telescope?

If you read down this page there is a manual
http://cs.astronomy.com/asycs/forums/t/30807.aspx

This is a cheaply made in China reflector telescope. It is mounted on a small equatorial mount which is too small to support the tube. It will be very shaky. These scopes appear on Craigslist after the owner determines they are really just a "toy" telescope.

You can do much better for their $249 asking price. Look at a Dobsonian telescope like one of these.

SOURCE: need owners manual for Venture RX-7 telescope

You will not find a manual. BUT you do not need one.

This is a very simple reflector telescope on an Equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to properly use the scope. Read my TIP in my profile section about aligning an Equatorial mount.

The major steps are:

Align the small finder scope with the main telescope tube on a distant object.

Set the Declination axis to your Latitude.

Align the main tube with the axis of the mount.

Point the entire mount toward the North Star Polaris.

Use the fine RA & DEC knobs to center Polaris in the eyepiece.

See this web site and my tips--
http://www.astronomy.net/articles/4/polaralign.html

This is why we NEVER recommend an EQ mount to a beginner. Polar Alignment just introduces one more FRUSTRATION to someone new to the Astronomy hobby.

The eyepieces simply go into the focuser. The Larger the number written on the eyepiece the LESS the magnification.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece with the largest number.

The manual WILL NOT tell you how to find those small dim objects in the sky. It's just assembly instructions.It does not tell you how to become an amateur astronomer.

Locate a local Astronomy club and seek advice from the members, who will be glad to help you with your telescope.

Sorry these are imported REFLECTOR style telescopes on a small equatorial mount.

No manuals exist for this exact scope but there are many just like it-- here is Meade telescope's manual for almost the same identical telescope.

Even though it's considered a TOY, its still small enough to be taken places easily. I feel its a step up from my binoculars. Yes its not my 10 in dob. but it will do.

I need simple set up instructions for australia


All GOTO scopes require a setup routine-- on my ETX 90 I must--

1. Train the drives

2. Set the time and the date, and the observing site in the hand controller

3. Level the tripod and the tube

4. Point the tube NORTH

5. And align and center on two stars BEFORE the telescope will find anything.

Read the manual TWICE--- and then practice inside before you take it outside at night.
