I see the images upside down, this was allready together and wonder if some mirrows are in the wrong way. This is a refractory tele

Astronomical telescopes always show the view upside down. Erect image accessories are available for terrestrial viewing if desired but reduces contrast in astronomical applications.

Vivitar 76mm reflector teles.76700 barlow lens 3x eyepiece is to small for 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 view through it everything is upside down, can you help?

ALL astronomical telescopes show upside down images, it's normal. Nothing is wrong with your scope. For terrestrial viewing you can buy an "erecting prism" like this one:

Never owned a telescope and was looking for one in this price range daytime terrestrial viewing would be a plus considering meade 90az adr or cellestron powerseeker 80 eq. any suggestions ?

Try to get at least a 90mm refractor. However we usually recommend REFLECTORS like this one for beginners.
More aperture at lower cost than a refractor.

All astronomical telescopes show upside down images in the eyepiece. You can buy an "erecting prism diagonal" to use for terrestrial viewing. Like this one:

302911 manual? bought the tele scope about 6 years ago,now my grandson wants to use it but I lost the manual ...can you help please

You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals. Look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one that is similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

I took the eyepiece to my little Bushnell 430 telescope apart. It had more parts than I expected and now I do not know the order to reassemble.

Why would you do that? Never disassemble an eyepiece the interior surfaces do not get dirty if you are reasonably careful. Handling the glass will make it worse.

There are so many variations in eyepiece design it will be very hard for someone to give you exact instructions. Probably best to just buy another eyepiece.

Dust inside telescope model 4504

Well it really depends on the type of telescope. Telescopes are collumized. So it's important to keep everything aligned and mark there positions with a micometer before dissasembly. and triple check on reaseembly. Don't use solvents unless you know 100% it's safe. I use a micro fiber cloth thats just been washed. and gently clean off the dust.

I'd say consult a professional if it seems even a little daunting to you. If its a refractor type. the tube ones with lenses those are easy as pie to clean.

And beware the little mirror is the most expensive on reflector telescopes. The big one is the inprecise one. so don't put a finger print on it by accident. D'oh!

as to finding one. I'm not sure. supposed just go visit the store and see if they are nice. We've got a two old guys both named steve running a Telescope and pro bowling store. One side teles one side bowling balls. with lazy cats inbetween. even cats sleeping on telescopes (there covered) Anyways they are the best in the world. it'd be Steves pro shop here

Could always give them a call. it's in Oklahoma though.
