Question about Meade 60AZ-M Jupiter Telescope 60mm refractor

1 Answer

I bought a used Meade telescope with no manual. It says Model 290C and under that,D=60mm F=900mm. Under that is Coated optics, then made in Tiawan. Can you let me know where I can get a manual? Thanks Judy

This is a 60mm refractor style telescope imported from China. No one will have a manual for that scope. Try to locate a local Astronomy club and the members will help you assemble it.

I need to purchase the meade polaris model # 60az-d eye pieces that you use to look through the telescope.


You need to purchase .965 diameter eyepieces. 700mm ( focal length of scope)/ eyepiece focal length=magnification. Maximum power of a 60mm scope is about 225x (under perfect conditions)
I would get a 25mm 700/25=28x for low power see link below
http://cgi.ebay.com/Meade-MA25-25mm-965-telescope-eyepiece-NEW-/230542978572?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35ad6eae0c
and then for higher power 700/8=87.5x
http://cgi.ebay.com/Astro-Optics-8mm-Deluxe-965-Telescope-Eyepiece-/230543763551?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35ad7aa85f
There are not many options with .965 eyepieces I would get a .965 to 1.25 adapter or .965 to 1.25 hybrid diagonal. That way you have more options on better eyepieces and the 1.25 eyepieces can be used for better telescopes in the future.

I need a user manual . Where can I find one


This is a small refractor style telescope on an equitorial mount.

You will not find a manual for that specific scope, but Meade maintains manuals for all their telescopes. Your scope is very similar to this one:

http://www.meade.com/manuals/m285/index.html

I suspect you do not know how to polar align the telescope. This article will explain polar alignment which must be done to use that type of telescope mount.

Difficult to find manuals for small telescopes. However Meade maintains a web site for all of their telescopes. Look under the REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR headings for a manual similar to your telescope. They all go together about the same.

These small equitorial telescopes do not have manuals. However Meade maintains a list of manuals at this web site. Look under REFRACTOR and find one similar to your telescope. They are all very much alike in assembly and use.

I need a manual. I have never used a telescope. I want to tackle this right.


You will not find a specific manual for that small telescope. However Meade maintains a web site with manuals for their telescopes. Find one similar to yours and download it for free. AND-- forget about doing astro-photography with that telescope. You might get a picture of the moon but not much more.

www.Meade.com look under Customer Service--- Manuals

Try to attend a local Astronomy club's star party in your area and ask questions.
