You will not find actual parts for this small refractor, being sold by Toys R Us.

You might try the store where you bought it, but most likely no parts are available. Try a local well stocked hardware store for simple bolts and nuts that you may need.

Next time do not buy a "department store" toy telescope. Read my TIPS on my profile page and read this:

I have reflector telescope 672 power and im missing some pieces. I need to get one tripod leg, all the screws to the telescope and the finderscope. I needed to find out how to go about getting these...

It's not worth hunting down that many parts for that small telescope. You cannot just buy a tripod leg-- you must buy the entire tripod. Eyepieces cost at least $30 each-- and a finderscope at least another $30-$40.

Locate another complete telescope. It's not economical to repair that low cost small scope. Toys R Us who sell that brand do not furnish replacement parts.

Need a manual or a phone number for the company

As you can see from the ONE review here:

A manual does not exist for this imported telescope. This is just one of DOZENS of brands imported from China.

It is a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to be used.

You will find hundreds of articles on how to use this telescope. Read my TIPS on my profile page and also read this web site:

I picked up a used Meade 114 EQ AS on the off

First go to Meade's manual web site -- look under the REFLECTOR heading and download a manual. Here:

Second-- It's NOT ASTROLOGY! It's Astronomy!

Astrology is completely fake and superstitious belief that the planets and stars affect your life!

The MIRROR is on the bottom of the telescope- this is called a REFLECTOR style telescope. The focuser is on the TOP (side) of the telescope. Make sure the focuser end is UP and the mirror is on the bottom pointed toward the GROUND.

Just got an edu science reflector telescope 672 handed down to me and it has been opened but never really used. i have never had any such creature but would truly like to be able to enjoy it. the thing is...

These are sold by Toys R US. Good luck with the scope, but it is one of the ones with many bad reports.

You will not find a manual for that REFLECTOR. However they all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

Meade has all of their manuals on the web site listed below. Look under the 4.5 inch REFLECTOR header for one that is similar to your telescope; and read my TIPS on my profile page.

Telescope manual

Probably not, BUT any well stocked hardware store should be able to supply almost any common bolt or screw.

This is a quit common reflector telescope. They all go together in a very similar fashion. Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals which even include hints on how to use the telescope.

Look under the header 4.5" REFLECTOR for one that is similar to your telescope here: slightly down the page to the right:

Need to see assembling instructions because I got it on separated parts. Txs.

If it's like the picture it is a reflector style telescope mounted on an equitorial mount. Meade has a very similar telescope, and Meade also has a web page with all their manuals. They all go together about the same way.

Look under REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope and download a manual here:

This is very similar to your scope.
