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!

Hi,

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)

http://www.bushnell.com/manuals/telescopes/78-8000_Voyager.pdf

and more here

http://www.bushnell.com/manuals/telescopes/Reflector_Equatorial_Mount.pdf

Bushnell puts out a lot of stuff

http://www.bushnell.com/products/other-products/telescopes/instruction-manuals/

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.

The Q was an instruction/handbook for a astral 400 telescope


It will be very difficult to find a manual for this old telescope. BUT-- the manual will only help you set it up-- it will not tell you how to find objects in the night sky.

I did find this discussion thread on the internet-
http://www.skyatnightmagazine.com/forum/surpised-how-cheap-telescopes-are-today-t124549.html

This is a typical refractor style telescope, VERY similar to dozens of other scopes. Go to YouTube and search for "refractor telescope " watch a few of the videos. This should give you enough information to set it up and use it.

Clear skies,

Need to set up orbitor telescope


Which model? Do you have the user manual?
What do you need to set up?
Have you already mounted the scope on the tripod?
What kind of mount does it have - equatorial or alta-zimuth?
Specifically what is the thing that you are trying to find out?
You must be able to answer some of these questions or else no one will be able to help you.
Google the internet for help on using a telescope.
Join a telescope discussion forum.
Your question lacks major information.
Sorry, but you must provide more information for us to be able to help you.

How to use the telescope and set it to see images


It depends on what kind of telescope you have.

The method of use is somewhat different.

Also we have to know what kind of mount you have,

equatorial or alta-zimuth.

Does your telescope have a go-to computerized mount.

The simple answer for a manually controlled telescopoe is:

1. Put in an eyepiece that has the highest number printed on its side - usually 25 mm, or 26 mm -

2. Aim the telescope at what you want to see in the night sky.

You can aim by sighting with your eye along the length of the telescope or by using the finder scope (a tiny telescope usually attached to the body of the main telescope).

3. After finding a target to look at, turn the focussing knobs slowly in one direction - if the image is getting blurrier then turn the knob in the opposite direction. Do this slowly and gently, until the image looks sharp.

4. Start by looking at a large target such as the moon. It is very easy to find and to aim at.

5. Get some books on beginning amateur astronomy. You can find a wide selection of these at your local library, or Google the internet for information of amateur astronomy.

I hope the above outline helps you to get started.

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.

I am wanting to set my telescope up and am not sure on the best way to begin i have the SkyWatcher Explorer-130/900 EQ2 Telescope and we tried to set it up at night but it wouldnt focus and i could see...


This is a reflector telescope on an equatorial mount. Really NOT what we recommend for beginners. The mount must be polar aligned in order to be used.

Read this:
http://www.optcorp.com/product.aspx?pid=3050

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 during the day time.

Read my tips on my profile page especially the one about Equatorial Mounts.

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.
