You will not find a manual. This scope has been out of production for several DECADES!

The small wedge must be polar aligned in order to track the sky. The legs must be adjusted for your latitude.

It has a motor inside that rotates the scope to compensate for the motion of the sky once the scope is polar aligned.

The front lens is multi-coated on PURPOSE! You do not want a telescope with an uncoated main lens. This coating increases light throughput --

Where can I get a manual for B & L 4000


No manuals exist for this telescope. Your best bet would be to contact the B&L distributor at this web site:

http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html

Possibly they have one? Also look down the same web site on the chance that your telescope might be listed there. All of the manuals are posted at the above web site.

I have a LX200 EMC 10". I had a similar software problem and solved it by downloading AstroFinder, bypassed the onboard software of the telescope, and controlled the telescope via my laptop. This was a more user frriendly method and allowed easy alignment of the telescope.

I lost my manual to my B&L Criterion 4000 5453


Going to be TOUGH to find a manual for that telescope. They stopped making them in the mid-1980s.

I am trying to keep the ringer volume at level 5 of my ge 25942 cordless phone, but it keeps defaulting back to level 4?+++


According to the owner's manual, this is a programmed "feature" of the phone. Evidentally, GE believes level 4 is better than level 5 and won't allow it to stay there.

I just purchased a TASCO Starguide 60 telescope at a garage sale and it is missing the owners manual. Can you please tell me how I can obtain another owners manual?


They do not come with manuals. However Meade maintains a web site for their telescopes. Look under REFRACTOR for one similar to your telescope. They all go together almost the same way,

Bushnell Model 78-4678


I have the Bushnell model 78-4678 and also was looking for the owner's manual, but couldn't find it. I decided to call Bushnell at this number (800) 423-3537 and talked to tech support. I explained that the telescope was hand-me-down and needed an owner's manual. They are sending me the owner's manual for free! So far, it sounds like this is going to work!
