Re: my telescope

Try the largest eyepiece you have (20mm, 25mm) for a wide field of view. Of you try to view the moon with too much power (smaller mm eyepieces) it will always come out blurry - too close for such magnification.

Need to know how to use the telescope after it is setup

Lorraine, join a club or get instruction book. An optical telescope which uses lenses is known as a refracting telescope or a refractor; one which uses a mirror is known as a reflecting telescope or a reflector. Besides optical telescopes, astronomers also use telescopes that focus radio waves, X-rays, and other forms of electromagnetic radiation.

Please help we have a mars explorer 74/700, very little used and the last time put away, the instructions for setting up appear not to have been included (not by me i might add with my borderline OCD!). ...

I believe this is a Bushnell telescope. All of the Bushnell manuals are on this web site.

Look down the page for your telescope model.

You will not find a manual for that small REFLECTOR style telescope. However the picture above-- that you show in your question shows the telescope mounted BACKWARDS actually pointed toward the ground!

Apparently FIXYA also does not know how to set up a reflector style telescope. The eyepiece and focuser end is on the UP end of the telescope with the mirror on the bottom end of the telescope.

Here is a manual for a MEADE brand telescope probably very similar to your telescope.

Is it like THIS telescope?

The focuser mechanism is at the FRONT end of the telescope. The Mirror is in the back-end or bottom of the telescope. This scope is on an equitorial mount, which means it must be POLAR ALIGNED in order to work. You can get a rough polar alignment by using the star Polaris (the North star).

We never recommend an EQ mount to beginners. Polar alignment introduces an additional beginner frustration with using the telescope. Read these web sites to get an idea of polar aligning a telescope.

Their are TWO knobs on the telescope that control Right Ascention and Declination movement. Declination IS your latitude, so the angle must be set to where you live. I am at latitude 32 degrees N --- so the angle is 32 degrees, which is where Polaris is above the horizon.

Never heard of that telescope.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Go out side during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

Setting up my reflector telescope(beginner)

During the daytime focus the telescope on a distant object-- center the object in the eyepiece. Without moving the telescope adjust the finder scope by loosening and tightening the set-crews until the crosshairs are centered on the same object in the telescope eyepiece.
