This is a very small 60mm refractor, not much bigger than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. Personally I would not spend any money on this; but would save up to buy a 6 inch or 8 in Dobsonian reflector scope like this one:

However read my TIP on my profile page about buying Accessories for a telescope. There are several links there where you can buy the .965 size eyepiece for your scope.

How to use meade telescope 60AZ-T ?


The whole unit is a "scope". What you mean is the objective lens to the eyepiece lens. Usually the wide end is pointed at the object or scantily clad person that you wish to view, and your eye is placed near the small diameter lens at the other end. If you have it reversed, it will work as a microscope.

I need a manual for the star quest by meade model number 60AZ-T


The manuals will not help you USE the telescope to find objects in the night sky. They only have assembly instructions. Here is Meade's web site with all the manuals they publish. Find your telescope.

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.

1 Answer

All the view is upside down, why is that?


This is normal for refractor scopes and is a result of the light being bent in its path to the eye piece.

Missing the eye piece for the Meade saturn 60az-m


ebay is a great resource for eyepieces, i would suggest a 26mm ma.
the eyepiece should drop in. if not you might be missing the image erecting diagonal. when the eyepiece is installed you should be looking perpendicular at the tube.
