The view through an astronomical telescope is always upside down. When your looking at stars and planets, it makes no difference. If you want terrestrial view, get spotting scope - that's not what reflectors are for. If you still insiste on view right side up, you'll have to buy and inverting eyepiece or adapter and probably spend more than you paid for the scope.

You can get a manual on this web site:

I cannot get an image to appear for the main telescope part (the big part) and i cannot find the manual for the product. help

There are no manuals for that scope which is a small reflecting style telescope (mirrors).

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser hole. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Take it outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object-- DO NOT point it at the sun as it will instantly blind you.

We Just bought this telescope at a garage sale for our 11 year old. There wasn't any paperwork or software with it. We have never use a telescope, so this will sound stupid to anyone who has, but... When...

This is a small reflector style telescope. The end with the focuser and the small finder scope is the UP END -- the mirror is on the bottom toward the ground.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

Read my TIPS on my profile page.

Here is the web site for Galileo telescopes-- they may have a manual. HOWEVER the manual only contains assembly instructions. It does NOT tell you how to use the telescope, how to focus, which eyepiece to use, and how to locate those SMALL objects in the night sky. Sky objects are about the size of the tip of your finger held at arm's length. The scope must be pointed directly at them to see anything.

Buy these two books-- "Turn Left at Orion", and "Nightwatch".

Try to locate a local Astronomy club to help you with the scope-- attend their meetings and star parties.

I bought a Geovision Omega Reflector telescope from a rummage sale but I didn't get a user manual with it. Can anyone tell me how it works?

Never heard of this telescope. You will NOT find a manual. You might try contacting a local astronomy club and have one of the members look at your telescope and help you with it.

Please can you tell me where I can find manual for instalation of vivitar 114x900 telescope

This is a REFLECTOR style telescope. Meade has a very similar scope and their manual should work for your telescope.

Go to the web site below and look under the REFLECTOR heading for a manual similar to your telescope. They all assemble and are used the same way.

Reflector telescope 525 power bought at a yard sale with no instructions. Is there a manual or any information on how to use this product? I'm not even sure all the pieces are here.

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

You will not find a manual for that telescope. Look on the Bushnell manual web site and locate one similar to your telescope. They all assemble in a similar fashion.

How to fix my galileo 800x80 Telescope

Unless you are very competent with optical instruments, I would recommend taking it to an authorised service centre. Opening these type of scopes up will cause humidity to enter the optical tube and you may end up with condensation inside the scope. Extremely minor variations in the positioning of the various mirrors and prisms will be likely to render the scope unusable. The add-on accessories are able to be removed and cleaned, however considerable care is required Here is the link to the user manual; And here is the link for further info - they should be able to tell you where to take the scope for service. Hope this helps :)
