I need to know about my telescope optrex information . the name on my telescope is exactly\; telescope OPTREX OT 525 astronomical telescope acromatic coated lens F=700 D=60 . but when I look

Optrex did exist but was bought by Koyocera and has disappeared. Optex is an unrelated supplier of security sensors.

From the information you give, you could buy a right angle prism, erecting type, which allows daytime use as well, like this

and a couple of eyepieces suited to the scope

The Q was an instruction/handbook for a astral 400 telescope

It will be very difficult to find a manual for this old telescope. BUT-- the manual will only help you set it up-- it will not tell you how to find objects in the night sky.

I did find this discussion thread on the internet-

This is a typical refractor style telescope, VERY similar to dozens of other scopes. Go to YouTube and search for "refractor telescope " watch a few of the videos. This should give you enough information to set it up and use it.

Clear skies,

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:

I need information about a tasco 57t

You can download a manual at the MEADE telescope web site for free-- find one that is similar to your telescope and use it to figure out what parts you are missing, and to learn how your scope works.
