The 3 x barlow will be useless for this small telescope.

Put the 1.5 x erecting PRISM into the telescope and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the erecting prism. This is your lowest magnification.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. Turn the focuser knobs slowly until the object comes into sharp focus.

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.

Yes you should be able to see the moon and several of the planets. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope (put the diagonal in first and then put the eyepiece into the diagonal). DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Just too much magnification for a 70mm telescope.

You will not find a manual for that brand BUT Meade has manuals for all of their telescopes. Look under the header--- REFRACTOR-- on the page below for a manual similar to your telescope.

First you have what we call a department store telescope. It is 60mm, not much bigger than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. Do NOT use the 2xbarlow if you have one, Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope and go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

You probably will not find a manual-- however Meade telescopes maintains a web site for their scopes. Look under REFRACTOR on this page for one similar to your telescope. They all work the same way:

I believe you have a REFRACTOR style telescope. Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals. Look under REFRACTOR for one similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

Just found your posting kind of old but I hope this helps you--
