This is a very simple refractor telescope. The eyepiece goes into the diagonal which is placed into the small end of the tube.

Here is a picture.

As you can see it is for sale for $30 on craigslist. Here is a similar Meade telescope manual which you can read. They all assemble and are used the same way.

I am looking for a telescope and I saw the JASON MERCURY 420 telescope on craigs list. I have never owned a telescope, I am a ameture photographer and I watch every science show on tv. I am not a 8 year...


Do NOT buy that telescope.

Second, to take long exposure (several minute) astro-photos you must use a GEM mount like one of these:

http://www.telescope.com/control/accessories/mounts-and-tripods/orion-atlas-eq-g-computerized-goto-telescope-mount

Then you need to decide on the scope to use. Something like this would work:

http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~product_id=07338

or this:

http://www.astronomics.com/main/product.asp/catalog_name/astronomics/category_name/U5QNWB3RKWWL8N3EL99F9DX9A0/product_id/AT6RC

Additionally you will need some accessories to mount the camera onto the back of the telescope, and you will need to learn how to polar align the mount so it will accurately track the sky.

I also have a jason mercury 420 telescope and was wondering if you knew where i could find a users manual bc I am having problems with my small lenses. I can see objects with just the telescope lens but...


You are using too much magnification. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Take it outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

I need a manual for the jason constellation 280. Do you know where I could find one?


You will not find a manual; for this small telescope. That is the problem with buying an off brand telescope.

Also even if you had a manual, it will not tell you how to use the telescope. It only has assembly instructions.

Jason 200X model 404


Hello, you could add any telescope accessory or eyepiece with this Jason mercury 200x model 404. It has an eyepiece size of .965. I would recommend buying a .965 to 1.25 adapter which can be found on ebay. This would provide you a new mirror and allow more options for eyepieces which will be better quality.
