I have just aquired a Jupiter D60mm/f800mm telescope (made in Japan).No instruction manual included and as I am a complete beginner I am lost!! I think this model is quite old but don't know the model...


Meade maintains all their manuals on this web site-- look under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your scope. You will not find an exact manual for that telescope; but they all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

I have just been given an EduScience reflecting telescope with tripod but with no manual or instructions. There seems not to be a seriel or model number, but it's mostly aluminium coloured with black ends...


You will not find a manual for this scope -- sold by Toys R Us by the way.

However Meade telescopes maintains a web site with all their manuals. REFLECTORS all go together in a similar fashion. Look on the web page below under REFLECTORS for a manual similar to your telescope.

maybe this one???

Manual for barska telescope 114900


You will not find a manual for that scope. BUT! It's a small equatorial mounted REFLECTOR telescope. Meade telescopes has a similar model and a manual. They all assemble and are used in the same way.

Look on this web site under REFLECTOR for a scope similar to yours and download the manual and print it.
http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

Your scope should be very similar to this one:

Instruction manual for the astrolon telescope 525


You are about the 10th person to ask for this. These are being sold at Toys R Us and the "toy" really applies to this scope. If you can return it and buy this telescope for your child.
http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=09804

and no you cannot buy a usable scope for less than $200. No manual exists for your telescope, however Meade maintains a web site of manuals for all their telescopes. Look under the REFRACTOR heading on the below web site for one similar to your telescope. They all assemble about the same way, and Meade includes a section in the back of all manuals on how to use the telescope.

This one is similar to your telescope.

We have the pink twinstar model 50600 telescope 50mm and lost the instructions prior to using. Is there anywhere online we can get instructions on how to use it as we can't seem to figure it out at all.


This is a refractor telescope. Download a manual from Meade. They all work about the same way.

Look under REFRACTOR:

My Telescope is described as a Meade Model DS60. This was a gift to my grandson and in the middle of a messy divorce, his dad screwed up assembly, probably lost parts. In any case, I no longer have...


Meade maintains a web page with all their manuals. Find your scope and download a copy.
http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

I believe I see your scope on the upper right hand side of the web page.

Meade, model: 6600, 6", need instruction manual & eye pieces


Sorry about Meade's responses, but their website has a download section for the telescope manuals - you may not find one that matches exactly, as they produce hundreds of models, but one that is close should suffice. As for eyepieces, there are several good vendors out there; Orion Telescopes, Meridian etc. Just check the barrel size; either .965" (Japanese standard) or 1.25" (American standard).

No schematics out there for that model, although there are ones for the LX classic and GPS. The center contact is positive.
