Put the lowest power eyepiece into the telescope, the one with the BIGGEST number written on it--- practice focusing during the daytime.

SOURCE: I got a mead ds-114 telescope. & don't know how to use it!

the eye piece that came with your scope is too powerful... look on ebay or a site that sells telescopes. also look at the size of your eye piece holder... my ds-114 came with a 0.96 holder, these are an odd size.. the other size is 1.25 and the eye pieces are much easier to find. try looking at the moon when it is cresent shaped and start from there. if you have the autostar, you have to go through a set up sequence to start. then the scope will track the objects that you select on the goto function. don't give up!

SOURCE: having just bought a used model I wish to know how

You will not find a manual for that specific telescope. However Meade maintains their manuals at this web site.

Look under REFLECTOR for one that is similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

Also you should read the beginner's telescope article on our Astronomy club web site, located here:

SOURCE: celestron advanced gt declination motor does not working

You did tighten the clutches?

If you did the DEC gears are either loose and not meshing or have broken.

Dr. Clay in Arkansas can repair this scope but it would cost several hundred dollars-- Celestron will probably sell you the parts to fix it. Here is their web site. You can also return the mount to them for repair.,220

Hi Joe, My name is also Joe and I just bought a Celestron AstroMaster 114 and need a hand with the elevation,inclination, declination settings(what should my gauges be set to) to star using the unit. Any...

Your DEC is the same as your Latitude--

Right Ascension does not matter for now. Polar Align the scope on the star Polaris-- read this:

Once you are polar aligned, rotate the tube to a star in the sky that you KNOW the name of. Look up the Right Ascension of that star on a cell phone app or a laptop planetarium program like this one:

Rotate the RA setting circle so it matches what the phone or laptop indicate. LOCK down the RA circle. Your scope is now adjusted to the sky and you can use the numbers on the DEC and RA to find other objects of known RA & DEC.

This telescope was passed down to me without a manual so I have not a clue as to how to work it. Is there one available on line that I could print off? ( Mine is the F 500 D 114 mm

This is a REFLECTOR style telescope probably on an equatorial mount. They all assemble in a similar fashion.

Go to Meade brand telescope's web site and look under the 4.5 inch REFLECTOR heading for a manual that is similar to your scope. You can download it for free.

I picked up a used Meade 114 EQ AS on the off

First go to Meade's manual web site -- look under the REFLECTOR heading and download a manual. Here:

Second-- It's NOT ASTROLOGY! It's Astronomy!

Astrology is completely fake and superstitious belief that the planets and stars affect your life!

The MIRROR is on the bottom of the telescope- this is called a REFLECTOR style telescope. The focuser is on the TOP (side) of the telescope. Make sure the focuser end is UP and the mirror is on the bottom pointed toward the GROUND.

Meade DS-2000 Manual Doesn't have info. about Meade Ds-2130

ds-2000 refers to the model line of the scope. ds-2130 the 130 refers to the diameter of the objective lens in mm. I have a ds-2114. Where the objective lens is 114 mm in diameter. as far as the manual goes everything else should be the same.
