If you read down this page there is a manual

This is a cheaply made in China reflector telescope. It is mounted on a small equatorial mount which is too small to support the tube. It will be very shaky. These scopes appear on Craigslist after the owner determines they are really just a "toy" telescope.

You can do much better for their $249 asking price. Look at a Dobsonian telescope like one of these.

Can't see Jupiter/Saturn with RX-9 telescope

I would not feel too disappointed. The RX-9 is not a large or powerful telescope (sorry) and is therefore not capable of huge magnification without loss of clarity. The largest practical magnification for this scope in a dark-sky site would be about x225, which would be about a 4mm eyepiece. Such an eyepiece is in fact difficult to use unless it is a very expensive wide-angle type. They can cost $500 just for the one EP. The EPs you got with the scope will not be in that league, being cheap "Plossls".

If you are in the suburbs, you will also have a lot of light pollution, or sky-glow, and this makes it even more difficult to see a sharp image. The best image available may not be enough to see the bands, let alone the GRS. In the burbs you may only be able to use a max magnification of x90 , or about a 10mm EP.

Bear in mind that ultra-high magnification for visual observing is pure advertising nonsense, for all but large observatory scopes. Those lovely pictures you see are the result of long, heavily processed time exposures with a sensitive camera. You won\'t see that with the naked eye, especially in the burbs.

In addition to all that gloom, the GRS is not always facing us here on Earth. Here is when you can expect it to be visible

I bought a second hand Venture RX-9 telescope through CraigsList, but the owner didn't have the CD or instruction manual. I found the manual on the internet, but not the CD. Do you have a source for...

Sorry these are imported REFLECTOR style telescopes on a small equatorial mount.

No manuals exist for this exact scope but there are many just like it-- here is Meade telescope's manual for almost the same identical telescope.

Not really a problem, but a question on expectations for a Venture RX-9 900mm reflector telescope. What should i be able to see on a clear night concerning Jupiter and Saturn? I am just getting started...

Is this your telescope?

If it is you can forget about 675 power magnification. The maximum magnification for ANY telescope is about 50 times aperture. You have about a 4 inch aperture mirror so 200 power is the highest it will go, and ONLY on perfect nights when the sky is very stable and if your optics are PERFECT.

Most of us only get 30-40 times aperture. You will not see color almost everything is shades of gray. If you are expecting a GIANT view you will certainly be disappointed. BUT-- the scope can show you many objects in the night sky.

Start with the moon and also Jupiter which is up shortly after dark. Download this free monthly star chart and read my tips on my profile page.

Missing a piece of my RX-9 +venture

You are missing the 2 inch to 1.25 inch adapter, that fits into the focuser so you can use 1.25 inch eyepieces.

I'm simply looking for the assembly instructions for the +venture RX-7 reflector telescope. I purchased the telescope back in December and just opened it now to find no assemply instructions or product...

Even though it's considered a TOY, its still small enough to be taken places easily. I feel its a step up from my binoculars. Yes its not my 10 in dob. but it will do.
