Question about Telescopes
I bought this telescope on ebay for my husband and it came without any instruction manual. We think he put it together but we were wondering if there are any manuals available and any other information we could find to help with star and planet gazing. We are both novices and have no idea where to look.
This is a pretty generic Chinese made 6" Newtonian reflector. The one's I have sampled produce excellent images. Celestron has a great online archieve of its manuals. This scope is similar to their C150-HD Newtonian Model #31056. The manual can be found here:
Google "beginning astronomy" and you'll get a quartr of million hits. Good over view here.
While you are there get a subscription to Sky and Telescope or their other publication aimed at beginners, Night Sky.
Find a local astronomy club and join it.
