To the second guy posting the same problem-- you went and bought a cheap department store telescope--- what do you expect for $89-- ???

If you would have spent just a little bit more you could have had one of these--

Don't buy telescopes at Wal Mart or Sears!

It will not be a premium grade telescope, but we all started somewhere. Your main task will be collimation, that is, lining up all the optics to produce a sharp image.

Unlike binoculars, this is not fixed in place, but has adjustments. There is info about it here (same type of scope, different base)

and more here

Bushnell puts out a lot of stuff

and any of their reflector telescope resources should be relevant. This type is also called a Newtonian.

There are a number of books on the subject; "How to make a telescope" by Texerau, "Standard handbook for Telescope Making" and others. Try William Bell for a selection of books.

Your website no longer contains the manual for the Telestar 114AZ model and I'm in desperate need of it's use.

This is a small reflector style telescope. Any of the REFLECTOR manuals has enough information to assemble and use this telescope. Look under the REFLECTOR heading for one that is similar to your scope.

Can I have installation guide for the product NG114AZ

There are no manuals available for that imported telescope. However it is a reflector style telescope with a mirror in the bottom, and a smaller secondary mirror underneath the focuser.

The FOCUSER end is the UP end of the tube, the large mirror is the bottom.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2 x barlow if you have one. Take it outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. The image will be upside down-- this is NORMAL with all astronomical telescopes.

Read my TIPS on my profile page-- objects in the night sky are tiny-- smaller than the tip of your finger held at arm's length. The scope must be pointed directly at them to see anything.

I purchased a Rokinon Refractor 900mm x 90mm and even the included eyepieces (1.25" Super 25 and 10) are not much better than my binoculars. this is my 1st telescope so I'm a bit of a rookie. What can i...

This is an imported telescope probably from China. You will not be able to contact a manufacturer. Never buy a telescope off of Ebay, at a garage sale, from Wal Mart, or craigslist, unless you know exactly what you are buying.

Buy from either a local telescope shop or online from reputable retailers like these:

Your scope appears to be on an equatorial mount which must be polar aligned in order to be used. Google "polar alignment" and learn how this is done or read my TIPS on my profile page.

Eyepieces come in 3 sizes .975, 1.25, and 2 inch. Measure the hole in the focuser. Any of the retailers listed above can sell you an eyepiece.

I have a tasco 511300 D=4 1/2 F=900mm need instruction manual if have one

You will not find a manual for that REFLECTOR style telescope. However they all assemble the same way. Meade scopes maintains a web site with all of their manuals. Look under the 4.5" REFLECTOR header for one that is similar to your telescope.

The manuals will NOT tell you how to use the scope to find objects in the sky. Read my tips on my profile page and read this:

1 Answer

No manuals

Hi Darcy: the "D" stands for Diameter, and the "F" stands for focal length.
so its a 100mm=4 inches. 900mm is how long the light reach the eyepiece.
let me know if this helps.
