Look around the page under the REFRACTOR heading.

4500 orbitor telescope


Download the manual in the link below. It is for the Orbitor 6000 which is a 6" Netownian Reflector telescope on an equatorial mount. Your telescope may have a Alta-Zimuth (AZ) mount instead, then click on the second link for the Celestron 114AZ. Although the telescopes are different from yours, the basic parts are very much similar and these manuals could be of help to you.

I have inherited a Bausch and Lomb 780200 telescope with no instructions as to how to set it up. I have it working but do not have the equatorial mount properly adjusted.


Is this your telescope?

If it is you can use a similar manual from TASCO-- look on this page for a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount.

http://www.tasco.com/pages/instruction-manuals/

They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

It's a Meade 114EQ-D that is the model--- a reflector style telescope on an Equatorial mount.

You can find a manual on the Meade web site here:

Look under the 4.5 inch REFLECTOR Heading.

How would you rate +Venture RX-9 telescope?


If you read down this page there is a manual
http://cs.astronomy.com/asycs/forums/t/30807.aspx

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.

Bought a Sears 6336 Equatorial Refractor telescope with no manual


Look on Meade's web site for a manual. They all assemble pretty much the same way. Look here under REFRACTOR for one similar to your telescope.

There are a few basic things to be aware of.
  1. This is an astronomical telescope so there is no erecting lens combination. So, everything you look at will be upside down.
  2. As a refracting telescope you have virtually no maintenance. A good thing.
  3. This telescope has an equatorial mount. Basically the mount corrects for the off-axis spin of the earth. The quick and dirty way to align the scope is to set position on the mount to 0hrs and 90 degrees. Make sure you are setup on a level surface and then rotate the entire telescope and tripod so that it faces north. Depending on your Latitude and longitude Polaris or the north start will appear higher or lower in the sky. Polaris is called the north star because it is within 1degree of the true north and it is always in the same spot throughout the night and year. The mount will have a third adjustment point near the base to adjust for the apparent change in position caused by the curvature of the earth. Once it is lined up try pointing the telescope at a bright star. The smaller the mm number on the eyepiece the higher the magnification. The beauty of an equatorial mount is that once you have it properly aligned on an object you only have to adjust on axis to keep the object in view.
I could write pages on this please re-post with some more specific questions and I will try my best to answer them for you. Good luck and happy star hopping.
