Re: cleaning

I hunt in Wyoming so I understand your dilemma. I recommend using running tap water to take off the clay and mud. Let dry and repeat if you need to. That will allow the bonds the clay and mud have on your scope to loosen and fall away between rinses. This will save your scope's finish. When you get ready for your lenses take extra care! I use ammonia free towelettes i get at the local electronics store to leave a streak free shine on my lenses. Using ammonia or alcohol will break down and ruin the fog proof and water proof coatings you can enjoy with your optic now. Otherwise that's the best recipe for getting your optic back to 100%

Dont understand why on top of an side of scope setting there is ur ur instead of left right or up down

The "U" indicates Up on the elevation dial, and the "R" indicates Right on the windage dial. Turn the elevation dial clockwise to move the point of impact up, counterclockwise moves down. Similarly, turning the windage dial clockwise moves Right, and counterclockwise moves left. Here's a scan from the Zeiss Conquest manual:
Good luck!

Can you tell me if Model 78-1518 is suitable for astronomical use, does it mean images will be upside down? It is for someone just starting to do a bit of star gazing. Is this model a reflector or a...

This is a spotting scope, mostly used in conjunction with firearms on the firing range or maybe hunting. It is a terrestrial refractor scope and shows erect images (the right way up). It isn't really ideal for astronomy.

One would generally want a larger diameter objective and a simpler eyepiece system (not a zoom) for stargazing. Some people start astronomy with a pair of binoculars (7x50), which would be as good or better than this for the purpose. Eventually you will want to see faint objects which requires a larger objective (main lens or mirror) to gather enough light and give good resolution. The upside down thing doesn't matter when looking at stars.

On my ziess conquest, what turning knobs do what? which one makes it go up and down and which one makes it go left and right?

The top knob should be marked with a "U" and an arrow pointing clockwise. Turning this knob clockwise should adjust point of impact Up, and turning it counter-clockwise should move it Down.

The knob on the side should be marked with a "R" and an arrow pointing clockwise. Turning this knob clockwise should adjust the point of impact Right, and counter-clockwise is Left.

The circuit board that holds the batteries for my ETX is corroded and I need a new one. How can I get one?

Is the problem that you left the batteries in the battery compartment? (a no-no, BTW.)

If so, you might get away by cleaning the board--if the circuit traces and components haven't been damaged.

Try mixing a tablespoon of backing soda with a cup of warm water. Using whatever applicator seems appropriate--a Q-tip, or small brush--clean the corrosion from the board with this solution. Wipe and dry thoroughly.

Inspect the board for broken circuit traces and damaged components.

If nothing is obvious, put fresh batteries in and try it--it will work, or it won't.

If it does, congratulations. If it doesn't contact Meade customer support at this link:

Good Luck!

I have a Winchester 7600 from the late 60's that I have never fired. I have just stored it here at home and never really had a use for it. I do not even know what type of ammo it takes. Can anyone tell me?

I think you will find that you have a Remington 7600 pump action rifle chambered in a Winchester calibre round. There may be something inscribed on the barrel with Winchester on it. The numbers with the word Winchester EG: .308 will denote the calibre. Just like a .38 revolver will have .38S&W on it regardless who manufactures it. The name S&W indicates the original patentee of the round. So your Remington 7600 is chambered for a Winchester patent round. The number with it such as 308 or 243 will tell you what ammo it takes.
