Manual We bought a telescope (an edu-science) looks like the star-tracker one at a garage sale. It did not have any instructions or anything with it. We can see out of it but everything is upside down. I would like to get a manual or help figuring it out.

You don't need a manual.
Upside down view through the telescope is normal. The scope is primarily for astronomical use and the concept of "up and down" is null in space.
If you want to use it for terrestrial viewing, you'll need an erecting eyepiece witch will correct up and down and left and right.

Better yet, get an erecting prism diagonal, and then you can use all your eyepieces and the image will be upright and correct left to right.

Need cd for the astrolon telescope 402 power


I have the 402 power astrolon telescope (item 36755), with the wooden tripod. I have the manual and the original CD (there's probably a more updated version--I've had this for approx. 10 yrs.). As for the manual, if you haven't found one, I'll make a copy and send it to you (it's only 6 small pages). Also, their customer service number is
800-637-3455. Hope this helps.

I have just bought a second hand Star Tracker.There seems to be a broken part which clips on the tripod,which is missing.No instructions and I would like some advice or should I bin it?


This scope is sold by Toys R Us, we receive more complaints on this brand than any other! No parts are available and no manuals exist for this "toy" telescope.

Junk it and buy from a retailer like Orion-- for example.

We bought an edu-science telescope at a garage sale and the eye-piece was broken. How can we get a bew part?


Eyepieces come in 3 sizes .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes. Measure the hole in the focuser and buy the correct size. The .965 size is hard to find.

Reflector telescope 525 power bought at a yard sale with no instructions. Is there a manual or any information on how to use this product? I'm not even sure all the pieces are here.


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

How to use telescope at night?


Many people have the same problem-- with these small telescopes you are stuck with seeing only the moon, and several other planets, and maybe a few bright star clusters.

These are all TINY objects (except for the moon).... when you look through the telescope you are looking at a section of sky about the size of your fingertip held at arms length-- the scope must be pointed DIRECTLY at the object. Practice on the moon first-- and then try to find Saturn which is up in the sky right now-- it looks like a dim (slightly yellow) star.
