Read the manual-- if you do not have one they are all located on this page:

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

    By the way, the manual really only has assembly instructions. It does NOT tell you HOW to become an amateur astronomer! It does NOT tell you how to use the telescope, or which eyepiece to use, or how to find those tiny objects in the night sky.

An instruction manual will only help you assemble the telescope. It will NOT tell you how to focus properly, which eyepieces to use, and how to find objects in the night sky.

I have inherited a Bausch and Lomb 780200 telescope with no instructions as to how to set it up. I have it working but do not have the equatorial mount properly adjusted.

Is this your telescope?

If it is you can use a similar manual from TASCO-- look on this page for a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount.

They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

How3 do you remove the mirror from ETX-125-EC for cleaning?

YOU DO NOT! This is a Maksutov style telescope. These must be collimated on an optical bench if the tube is dis-assembled. Meade can do the cleaning properly and or Dr. Clay in Arkansas.

Assembly & operating instructions for a Sear's Refactor Telescope Model 24191.

Sorry the only thing available from Sears is this parts list-- not a manual.

I suspect this is a small REFRACTOR style telescope. You may want to download a Meade telescope manual which is similar to your telescope. They all assemble in a similar fashion.

Look under the REFRACTOR header for one that is similar to your telescope:

I need a user manual

Contact Galileo scopes directly:

The manual will not tell you how to use the telescope, how to focus it properly, which eyepiece to use, or how to find those tiny objects in tthe night sky. It is only assembly instructions. Locate a local Astronomy club and attend their meetings and star parties.

Throw it AWAY! You will never be able to use it as it yields to much magnification for that small aperture telescope. Use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

Have been given a, "used" Edu Science 525x reflector telescope (set) in case. I,m looking for the following help .... 1) needs to be inspected,and overall cleaning done', and adjustments made to be sure it...

This is sold by Toys R US. You will not find a manual. It will NOT achieve 525x that is a complete lie. Maybe 100-150 power.

Meade has manuals for all of their telescopes. Look under the REFLECTOR topic for one that is similar to your telescope. They all assemble the same way.

Then read my TIPS on my profile page.

Here is Meade's manual web site:

Images viewed are upside down

oh this is normal,because when looking at stars it really doesnt matter if they are inverted,but by leaving out the erecting lenses you get more light and less distortion. so you need an erecting lense to see images in the daytime,call bushnell@18004233537,im sure they can sell you the right adaptable piece....good
