I rescued a celestron Skymaster 60AZ from the local council waste tip. all lenses are good scope and tripod minus a few screw/bolts which i can fix. But it will not produce a focussed image unless I extend...


Do you have a "diagonal" with this small telescope? It looks like this:
http://www.amazon.com/Orion-1-25-Prism-Telescope-Diagonal/dp/B0000XMWYY/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1313867352&sr=8-4

Put this into the focuser and then put the eyepiece into the diagonal. That all there is to it. If you are just putting the eyepiece into the telescope without the diagonal --- then you will need to OVER extend the focuser in order to come to focus as you described.

I nwwd a diagonal mirror and a altitute rod for a polaris 60AZ-D telescope


Only Meade will have the "rod".
.
You can buy a diagonal from various on-line retailers. They come in .965, and 1.25 inch sizes; measure the hole in the back of the tube and buy the correct size. Here are two retailers:

I need to purchase the meade polaris model # 60az-d eye pieces that you use to look through the telescope.


You need to purchase .965 diameter eyepieces. 700mm ( focal length of scope)/ eyepiece focal length=magnification. Maximum power of a 60mm scope is about 225x (under perfect conditions)
I would get a 25mm 700/25=28x for low power see link below
http://cgi.ebay.com/Meade-MA25-25mm-965-telescope-eyepiece-NEW-/230542978572?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35ad6eae0c
and then for higher power 700/8=87.5x
http://cgi.ebay.com/Astro-Optics-8mm-Deluxe-965-Telescope-Eyepiece-/230543763551?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35ad7aa85f
There are not many options with .965 eyepieces I would get a .965 to 1.25 adapter or .965 to 1.25 hybrid diagonal. That way you have more options on better eyepieces and the 1.25 eyepieces can be used for better telescopes in the future.

What is the proper way to assemble this telescope


Read the manual-- if you do not have one they are all located on this page:
http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

This is a simple refractor telescope. Put the diagonal into the focuser and then put the eyepiece into the diagonal.

Missing the eye piece for the Meade saturn 60az-m


ebay is a great resource for eyepieces, i would suggest a 26mm ma.
the eyepiece should drop in. if not you might be missing the image erecting diagonal. when the eyepiece is installed you should be looking perpendicular at the tube.
