Go to Meade's web site and download one of the REFRACTOR manuals that is similar to your telescope. They all go together about the same way.

WHEN I LOOK AT A DIFFERENT OBJECT THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME


  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

I have an astromaster 70 and im not really seeing anything interesting, just stars a little closer, i was told i could see jupiters moons but i cant really see anything


You need to attend a local star party by a local Astronomy club and get the members to help you.

Jupiter is not up in the sky right now, during the evening-- however Saturn is up. All the planets follow the ECLIPTIC path across the sky-- the same path the sun followed during the day time.

Objects in the night sky are VERY SMALL-- smaller than the tip of your finger held at arm's length. Tonight try to find M42 the Orion Nebula, and M45 the Pleiades star cluster. See the sky map above.

II bought a telescope Edu Science Star Gazer 70MM for my children, and in the seeker the images are seen upside-down. It is normal it or the lenses are defective? It is the first telescope and the truth is...


Astronomical telescopes usually show an upside down image. There is a good reason for this- erecting the image needs more bits of glass in the light path, which reduces the amount of light and increases aberrations. Even if this is only slight, astronomers prefer to avoid it, and they don't really care which way up the Moon or Jupiter appear. It is possible to fit an erecting prism or eyepiece to most astronomical telescopes, and some of them come with one, but one wouldn't bother to do this with the small finder scope.

I have a edu science 70mm Astro-Gazer. I lost the manual and forgot how to use it. I have 4mm and 20mm lens and I can see moon via 20mm lense. But how can I use 4mm or 3X part to magnify the view ? Thanks!


That little scope will NEVER be able to use the 4mm with the 3xbarlow, just too mmuch magnification. The maximum possible magnification for ANY telescope is about 50 times aperture.

Your scope is about 3 inches so 150 power is the maximum.

I have a KonusMotor -70 Refractor Telescope that didn't come with a manual. I'm lost as to how to set it up and use it.. Help.


This is probably a refractor setting on an equatorial mount.

You will not find a manual. However Meade brand telescopes maintains a web site with manuals. They all assemble pretty much the same way. Look at this web site under REFRACTOR header for one that is similar to your scope.

We bought a Rokinon 500mm X 70mm Refractor Telescope for our father and he said it never worked properly. Now that he's passed, we cannot find the manual to ensure he put it together properly. In looking...


Yes you should be able to see the moon and several of the planets. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope (put the diagonal in first and then put the eyepiece into the diagonal). DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Just too much magnification for a 70mm telescope.

You will not find a manual for that brand BUT Meade has manuals for all of their telescopes. Look under the header--- REFRACTOR-- on the page below for a manual similar to your telescope.

Just recieved from father christmas and cant focus into anything


This is a small 70mm refractor style telescope.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. This will double the power of the eyepiece. Your scope is too small to use the 2x barlow.

Now go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

Please help. I need the user manual for c-star


That is a very simple reflector style telescope --- here is my suggestions-

1. Forget about the barlow--- since this scope has a very small aperture you will not be able to get much more than about 125 power-- if you try to use the barlow which DOUBLES or TRIPLES the power of your eyepieces the images you see will be degraded and it will be VERY hard to point the telescope and focus.

2. Put the eyepiece with the largest number (which is the lowest magnification) into the telescope and take it outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object.

3. Take it out at night when the moon is up and LESS THAN 3/4 full-- the moon should be your first night target...... if all goes well try to find Saturn which is up in the sky right now, and appears as a slightly yellow "star".

4. The smaller telescope is the finder scope and mounts on top of the main telescope tube. Use this to point the main telescope------- but you must first line it up on a distant object so that the small telescope and the big tube are both pointed exactly alike.

5. Try to find a local astronomy club and attend one of their star parties.

6. Here is a manual for a telescope that is very similar to what you have except yours is on an Alt Az Mount while the one below is on an equatorial mount but many of the tube parts are the same--
