You will not find a manual for that specific telescope. However Meade maintains their manuals at this web site.
http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

Look under REFLECTOR for one that is similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

Also you should read the beginner's telescope article on our Astronomy club web site, located here:

How do i set site scope to aim at what i want


Not familiar with this particular model, but you may like to try using the main scope to obtain an image (doesn't matter what), then adjusting the small sighting scope to show the same object and securing it in place. HTH

I need a users manual which tells me how to observe things through the eyepiece.


There are probably several good books on astronomy which you may obtain from your local library that could give the information you require, but I doubt if there is one specifically for your telescope. Have you tried contacting the mfrs or importers to see if they can assist you ? After all, it is in their interest to ensure you are satisfied with your purchase.

Vivitar 76700


Do not know where you live but humidity will fog the eyepiece. Put the scope out with the covers on for at least one hour to reach thermal equilibrium. Use the lowest power (highest number) eyepiece first.

Vivitar 76mm reflector teles.76700 barlow lens 3x eyepiece is to small for it.is there a reducer for the barlow ?kit came with two 3x barlow.same size


No the barlow increases the magnification by 3 TIMES for any eyepiece --
this will be too much for that small 76mm telescope.

Magnification is the least important quality of a telescope. Aperture and quality ioptics are much more important. I usually never use a barlow -- just the straight eyepieces in various mm sizes.

When I look through the eyepiece all I can see is my own eye. I have a VIV-TEL-76700


The only thing I know of that can cause this effect is if you are looking into the eyepiece mount of a reflector telescope without there actually being an eyepiece in it. Seeing your own eye in this situation is a check that the collimation (lining up of the optical elements) is good.

You need to put an eyepiece into the mount. This scope is meant to come with two eyepieces, but if you bought it second-hand and didn't get them, you can buy eyepieces from several sources, including Amazon and eBay. Measure the eyepiece tube's inside diameter. The most common barrel size for eyepieces is 1.25 inches, but there are also some small telescopes that use eyepieces just under an inch (.965") in diameter, which are harder to find. If you have to buy eyepieces, they are likely to cost more than this scope is really worth.

There is a good website for telescope beginners at THIS LINK

I WISH TO SET UP A TASCO 40-114675 TELESCOPE CAN YOU SUPPLY INSRUCTION MANUAL


You will not find a manual for that small REFLECTOR style telescope. However the picture above-- that you show in your question shows the telescope mounted BACKWARDS actually pointed toward the ground!

Apparently FIXYA also does not know how to set up a reflector style telescope. The eyepiece and focuser end is on the UP end of the telescope with the mirror on the bottom end of the telescope.

Here is a manual for a MEADE brand telescope probably very similar to your telescope.

Where can I get a users manual from thanks bern


There are several telescopes all named Explorer with that model number.

What is the full brand name of your telescope?

This may help you. If your scope has MIRRORS look under REFLECTOR on the below Meade web site of manuals for one similar to your telescope. They all assemble in the same way.

If your scope has a LENS in the front look under REFRACTOR.

Need user manual for Meade Telstar 76700 telescope


Try this web site for a manual: http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html.

I did not see the part number 76700 listed but they had several Telstar models listed and did not always show the part number, instead opting to show the model number. If the exact one is not listed, you might find one very close to it.

I hope this helps.
