Meade sells eyepieces and also has a web site with their manuals.

Measure the hole. Eyepieces come in three sizes .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes.

You can also buy eyepieces from many on-line retailers here is one of them.

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.

The AZ worm gear is not engaging the gears. There is a spring next to the gear which applies pressure -- open up the base and see if the spring is loose or broken.

The little tube is the FINDER scope which you line up with the main tube and use to POINT the telescope.

You have a simple refractor. Read these: Instructions for a simple refractor

How to set up a Meade telescope, model 293--without manual, how do the lenses get set up?

Meade has all of their manuals on this web site:

You never said what is the NAME of the scope. Anyway find your telescope on this page and download a free manual.

The LARGER the number written on the eyepieces the LOWER the magnification. Start out with the eyepiece with the largest number written on it and practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

Read my TIPS on my profile page.
