    The objects seem so small and I cant see any detail, If I focus to enlarge the object it only seems to make it blury.

    Someone gave me this telescope for Xmas this year, 2 months later my house was flooded and the manual was lost in the debris. The telescope was upstairs so it's in good shape and I have all the lenses and accessories. Anyone know where I can download the manual for it? I'd love to start using it but haven't got a clue how to set it up. Been doing a searches on Google but not finding a manual.
    Thanx for any help .........

There are a number of books on the subject; "How to make a telescope" by Texerau, "Standard handbook for Telescope Making" and others. Try William Bell for a selection of books.

Model# 100501103 I need a new manual with assembley instructions. I purchasted the telescope several years ago. I now want to give it to my grandchildren but I can't find the instruction manual.


Sorry ut you will not find a manual for that small telescope. It's a reflector style telescope probably on an equatorial mount which must be polar aligned in order to be used.

Here is a Meade brand manual that is similar to your scope:

I picked up a used Meade 114 EQ AS on the off


First go to Meade's manual web site -- look under the REFLECTOR heading and download a manual. Here:
http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

Second-- It's NOT ASTROLOGY! It's Astronomy!

Astrology is completely fake and superstitious belief that the planets and stars affect your life!

The MIRROR is on the bottom of the telescope- this is called a REFLECTOR style telescope. The focuser is on the TOP (side) of the telescope. Make sure the focuser end is UP and the mirror is on the bottom pointed toward the GROUND.

I WANT TO FIND A MANUEL FOR THIS TELESCOPE


You will not find a manual. However you have a reflector that is mounted on an equatorial mount. Meade has a very similar telescope and maintains a web site for all of their telescopes. Look under REFLECTOR heading for one that is similar to your telescope. They all assemble in a similar fashion.

this one is very similar:

Wont focus correctly


TOO MUCH magnification. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow. Try Jupiter with lower magnification.

Bought a Geovision Precision Optical Omega Reflector telescope with a manual from a garage sale, please help locate the instruction manual, or tell me how to get the view right side up.


The view through an astronomical telescope is always upside down. When your looking at stars and planets, it makes no difference. If you want terrestrial view, get spotting scope - that's not what reflectors are for. If you still insiste on view right side up, you'll have to buy and inverting eyepiece or adapter and probably spend more than you paid for the scope.

Fieldvision 114 mm reflector instruction manual


Sorry there are no specific manuals for this small imported relector style telescope. Use one of the Bushnell manuals for reflectors on this page-- they all work the same way.
