4500 orbitor telescope


Download the manual in the link below. It is for the Orbitor 6000 which is a 6" Netownian Reflector telescope on an equatorial mount. Your telescope may have a Alta-Zimuth (AZ) mount instead, then click on the second link for the Celestron 114AZ. Although the telescopes are different from yours, the basic parts are very much similar and these manuals could be of help to you.

I recently purchased a Tasco Starguide telescope. Aparently the eye piece it came with does not even belong to the telescope. Will the eye piece to this particular telescope even be available for...


Telescope eyepieces are interchangeable. Most scopes come with two or three, of different focal lengths (to give different magnifications), and enthusiasts frequently buy others, either to get a wider range of focal lengths or to get better quality.

I do not know what you mean by "does not even belong to the telescope". Most eyepieces are a standard size, with a barrel of 1.25 inches outside diameter. If your eyepiece mount is that size, you can use any make of eyepiece that fits. The Tasco brand name is not associated with high quality eyepieces, so if the one you have is another make then that is not a problem in itself.

You can find many eyepieces for sale on Amazon or eBay by searching for "eyepiece 1.25". You may want to familiarise yourself with eyepiece issues by visiting THIS SITE, which has useful basic information.

NO it is NOT missing a lens-- all astronomical telescopes show upside down images.

You can buy an "erecting prism" diagonal for terrestrial viewing, but you do not need it to view the night sky.

Here is an example of the erecting prism:

Hello. I have a telescope, model 90076, but I cannot find the manual anywhere. Would it be possible to download one? Thank you :) Raquel


Your question does not include the BRAND of telescope; the number does not tell us what link of telescope you own.

However they all go together in the same way. There are two basic types of telescopes REFRACTOR and REFLECTOR. The reflector has a mirror in the bottom of the tube the refractor has a lens in front.

Meade maintains a list of manuals for all of their telescopes. Look under either REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one that is similar to your telescope.

The back of the manuals usually have suggestions on how to use the telescope.

I have a vivitar telescope and lost the instructions.


You did not say what model or type of telescope you have-- most of the Vivitars are very simple telescopes --- they all work the same way -- there are two basic types of telescope:

Reflectors -- which use mirrors, and the eyepiece is inserted into the side of the tube

Refractors - these "look" like a telescope-- and use a lens in the front and an eyepiece in the back.

Meade maintains a web site for all of their telescopes. Look here and download one that is similar to your telescope under Refractors or Reflectors.

TASCO STARGUIDE 114 WITH MISSION CONTROL


My list of things to check would include:
1) Batteries - they usually fail whenever the temperature drops. And that does happen outside as you are viewing. They appear fine when tested by a voltmeter, but fail when any actual "load" is placed on them. If you have an adapter which plugs into the mains, I would go with that instead.
2) Cables - they can become frayed and "open" with wear. Connectors (especially the RJ-xx telephone type) are notorious for maintaining good reliable contact.
3) Proper placement of connectors - ie Know your telescope; read the manual. No manual (?) then check the labels/function and fit of all jacks/connectors BEFORE APPLYING POWER. In case this step has already been skipped, check for blown fuse(s) which may save your investment.
4) The computer requires some basic information about your location and local time before it can begin to determine which objects may be available for viewing. Again, this will require some reading of the manual. Your information needs to be only somewhat accurate (within a county for position, and a few minutes for the time).
5) Get help from a local amateur - Learn to use the telescope without the computer. Your optics do not depend on the computer to give you pleasant enjoyable hours of viewing. Finding objects in the telescope without the computer is challenge enough. Adding the extra burden of learning how the computer works can be frustrating. Once the un-computerized telescope becomes familiar, then tackle the computer.

I know, you've already tried all of these! I hope you are enjoying Saturn by now!

Seben 150-1400 telescope


This is a pretty generic Chinese made 6" Newtonian reflector. The one's I have sampled produce excellent images. Celestron has a great online archieve of its manuals. This scope is similar to their C150-HD Newtonian Model #31056. The manual can be found here:
