Question about Optics
You posted this without detailing your problem. That brand (Horizon) is unknown and probably an imported telescope made in Asia.
There is an "Horizon" hobby shop vendor located here:
But they sell different brands of telescopes. You need to be more specific about the telescope and the problem you are having.

Hi! May I ask what you need to know regarding the Telescope. Thanks!

Horizon is not a known optic brand (Event Horizon is, but model does not match). The telescope is a refractor 60x910 (see Refractors ). This kind of telescopes work all in the same way since Galileo invented them.
The refractor is usually sold with a leaflet contining minimal instructions. Original leaflet for this refractor is not available. I am posting relevant documentation. I have been an astrophile for several years. This should be enough to use the telescope:

Telescope how-to instructions, help and tips
As said, the manuals above should apply to your telescope. In case you repute this solution helpful, please don't forget to accept.

What is your question?

Hi. Sorry but I could find nothing about your scope with Google and three other search engines. It's certainly one of those intruments crafted in the Far East and sold under a variety of brands. Or maybe it was made in the West but by a manufacturer that no longer exists.
Sorry we can not help you find a manual.

If your question was "Where can I get a manual?" then unfortunately the reason you have no answer is that there doesn't appear to be one in the public domain which is available online.
I've never heard of your model, but as there are hundreds of factories which produce generic models which subsequently have no-name branding applied it's unsurprising. Please describe your telescope fully: its diameter, focal length, mount, finder, tripod, eyepieces, plus the accessories you might have, and whether its objective is a lens or a mirror. Also state if there's any identification as to which country it's made in. These details will help to identify whether it's been supplied under a more familiar brand name such as Meade, Tasco or Bresser in which case they may have a suitable manual.
Note that many telescopes simply don't have user manuals to start with, as they're often aimed at experienced users.
