Don't quite understand your question. However the only manual for that telescope may be on the Meade web site under REFLECTOR here:

    Again if you look on the Meade web site I listed above under REFLECTORS and find one similar to your telescope you can download a free manual. They all go together about the same way.

Two years ago my son got the astro-nova 102 mm for Xmas. Since then we have not been able to see anything on it, Everything looks dark. Tried to return it to toys r us but since we did not have the receipt...


First NEVER buy another telescope from Toys R Us ------- we get the most complaints on this telescope brand.

Two suggestions-

1. Find a nearby Astronomy club and have the members help you with the scope.

2. This is what is called a REFLECTOR style telescope. Many beginners setup this telescope BACKWARDS. The large mirror is on the bottom of the scope-- and the eyepiece and focuser is on the UP end of the scope near the front on the side of the tube. Like this picture-
http://www.myfirstscope.com/reflector.html

3. Take the scope outside during the day time -- put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object.

Purchase a 263/525 Reflector Telescope put it together, took off the eyepiece lens caps, but still unable to see anything. Does the end filter of telescope need to be removed?


The picture in your post is NOT a reflector style telescope:

This is a reflector:

Notice that the eyepiece is in the FRONT side of the scope. Take the front lens cap off-- the primary mirror is on the BOTTOM of the tube.

I don't know how to use the telescope. It didn't come with directions on how to use it or put a few pieces together.


Since all reflectors and German equatorial mounts work about the same anyone familiar with telescopes can show you how to use it. No manual needed. Just contact a local club for the help you need. There's a strong bias against Tasco since so much of their stuff is junk, or "toy" telescopes.

http://www.astronomyclubs.com/
http://www.skyandtelescope.com/community/organizations

and look at this web site under the header 4.5 inch REFLECTOR for a manual similar to your telescope. They all go together the same way.

maybe this one is similar to your scope. ?

Not for JC Penny!

This is a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be POLAR ALIGNED in order to use it. Never buy a telescope from Wal Mart or JC Penny etc etc-- these are usually "toy" telescopes that are NOT suitable for Astronomy.

Return it if you can and buy THIS telescope:

Does it have a name on the scope? If it has a MIRROR in the bottom it is a REFLECTOR.

If it has a lens on the front it is a REFRACTOR. Look on Meade's manual web site under the header REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope.

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???

I purchased a science tech 675 X reflector telescope and need an instruction manual. Where could I download one?


This is a Fisher Price toy telescope. You will not find an operational manual.

Return the scope, it's considered junk. After you return it, consider a reflector on a Dobsonian mount as your first telescope. Like this one:
http://www.telescope.com/control/dobsonians/classic-dobsonian-telescopes

and read my telescope TIPS on my profile page.

How would you rate +Venture RX-9 telescope?


If you read down this page there is a manual
http://cs.astronomy.com/asycs/forums/t/30807.aspx

This is a cheaply made in China reflector telescope. It is mounted on a small equatorial mount which is too small to support the tube. It will be very shaky. These scopes appear on Craigslist after the owner determines they are really just a "toy" telescope.

You can do much better for their $249 asking price. Look at a Dobsonian telescope like one of these.

Even though it's considered a TOY, its still small enough to be taken places easily. I feel its a step up from my binoculars. Yes its not my 10 in dob. but it will do.

DO YOU HAVE A MUCH CHEAPER ASTRONOMICAL TELESCOPE ?


Cheap telescopes are just toys-- I am sorry but you will need to spend about $200-$300 to get a good beginner telescope-- here are two suggestions-
