Hi. The telescope itself became disattached from the tripod. How do I connect it again? There seems to be a screw, but it is not screwing in tight. THanks. Maria.

The female end may be stripped. You will need to re-tap the threads, and probably also buy a replacement bolt at any well stocked hardware store.

Ahoo.comI've got a Star Tracker Telescope from Toys R Us. Although I have the instruction manula I cannot get the telescope to attach to the tri-pod, wondering if I am missing a peice....or is it one...


It probably just screws onto the tripod-- this is a very simple telescope. Read myu tips on my profile page-- take it back to Toys R Us if it will not attach-- and never buy that brand again. We receive the most complaints with that telescope.

I have a Model 155w Altazimuth Refracting Telescope. It will not mount on the tripod. I believe I am missing a piece, but I don't knoe which one.


There should be a screw hole in the bottom of the tube and or two screw holes one on each side of the tube.

In the first example all you need is a photo tripod and screw the tube on it-- in the second you are missing the "fork arms that attach to the telescope -- like this picture:

I recently bought a used bushnell reflector telescope that is missing a tripod mounting bracket and screw, can you please tell me where i can find one?


You cannot find parts for that very low cost telescope. You can buy a tripod but the cost will probably be more than you paid for the scope.

Here are tripods:

Next time do not waste your money on these types of telescopes. Instead save up and buy something like this:

Reassembling telescopic sections for a 676B monopod


Each leg lock has a leg locking lever and a screw that hold the clamp assembly tight to the leg. Unlock the leg lock lever, loosen the screw above it that holds the clamp tight to the leg. The legs should fit into each other sice each leg is slightly larger or smaller then then next one. Slide the clamps in the approprite places and tighten the screw enough to hold the clamp assembly tight, but do not over tighten it. Over tightening will damage the 679 tubes.

How do you mount an ext 90 telescope (meade) to its tripod (ext field tripod). both are unused out of the box


There are two holes in the base of the telescope that match up with the two thumb screws on the tripod. It's easier if you lift up the base of the tripod a little using the latitude scale shaft.

Read the manual front to back before you use the scope.

No replacement parts available for that telescope. Suggest you take the tripod to a well stocked hard ware store and see if they have any screws, bolts, or clamps that would repair the tripod.

You can buy another photo tripod of course.
