Do you mean the FOCUSER broke or the metal piece that holds eyepieces -- if the focuser broke you can buy a replacement focuser at Orion.

Looks like you are out of luck; Hadin Optical has closed their retail side of the business, and is only doing commercial optics.

You will not find any instructions for this particular mount and tube.

However here is a video on Telescope mirror cleaning-- and a web site on disassembling an EQ5 mount which is similar to your moun.

We left our telescope out on a covered deck. Now the mirror is badly pitted. can you grind it? or does it need replaced? (deep space hunter 10 ")


The mirror must be recoated -- the pitting is in the coating NOT in the glass--Google mirror recoating.

I need a manual for the deep space hunter 6 inch purchased around 2002. model number DSH-6


Why would you need a manual for a simple Dobsonian reflector telescope.

The Company does not exist-- anymore.

A manual only showed how to assemble the telescope, it DOES NOT tell you how to USE the telescope to find objects in the sky.

This is a good beginner telescope by the way. Here is how to get started using it:

1. During the day time align the small finder scope and the big scope on the same distant target. Then you can use the finder scope to locate and POINT the main tube to objects in the night sky.

Also during the day put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. This is your LOWEST magnification. Practice focusing on a distant object. The image will be upside down--- this is perfectly normal. Nothing is wrong with the scope.

The moon should be the first target at night.

Buy two books: Turn Left at Orion and Nightwatch.

I have a deep space 420x with no instructions. Is there a web page i can go to find them?


You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade maintains a web site for their telescope manuals. Look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.
