Barska 40070 Anyone having trouble with this telescope? We received it as a gift; there is only a single page instruction sheet that's incomplete and not easy to follow, the finderscope shows images upside down, the finderscope and eyepiece images don't correlate, etc. thanks.

I was given a barska 40070 i was assembling it then i came across the barlow lens i tried putting it on my telescope i did but then i went outside i had aligned everything prior to it I looke into the...


A barlow doubles the magnification of the eyepiece and halves the field of view so it it very hard to center an object. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) first. Center the object in the eyepiece, then you can insert the barlow between the scope and the eyepiece. You will be surprised how far off from center you are.

Can not figure out how to put together my barska telecope


This is a very simple REFRACTOR style telescope. Put the diagonal into the focuser on the back and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. That's all there is to it. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

The instruction manual for assembly is missing for my starwatch telescope 600 80060. They put the wrong manual in the box.


This is a simple 60mm refractor. No manuals are available on the internet. It looks like this when assembled:

Even if you had a manual it will not tell you how to USE the telescope to see objects in the night sky.

We need a manual how to use the Telescope barska 90060 AE 10098


You will not find a manual for this telescope.

The manual will only have assembly instructions, it will NOT tell you how to use the telescope.

Locate a local Astronomy club and the members will teach you all about, eyepieces, locating objects in the sky, and how to use your telescope. Read my tips on my profile page.

I can't find the manual; not even sure I had one. No matter how I fit the lenses together, nothing happens. Well, once I got a great shot of the moon, but then I couldn't repeat what I did.


You will not find a manual for this small refractor style telescope. Put the diagonal into the focuser--- then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal.

Im trying to find out to put my telescope together just got it but no directions any help please


You did not say what brand and model number--

However-- Meade telescopes maintains a web site with the manuals for all of their telescopes. Find one that is similar in style to your telescope and use it to learn about how to assemble yours.

There are really only three styles of telescopes reflector (with a mirror), refractor with a lens in front, and catadioptric with a lens in front and mirror in back--

and only two kinds of mounts-- ALT AZ (up down left right) and equatorial (usually has a counter weight and needs to be polar aligned)-- the general instructions are usually about the same--

Here are the manuals-- which usually include how to use a telescope--

Try the refractors and reflector manuals first--

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

Good luck-
