Question about Manfrotto 745MF3 Tripod

1 Answer

701RC2 going on 745B sticks

Can't figure out how to remove the existing head (which appears to be a telescope or surveyor's mount of some kind; has #18050, and many incremental marking for degrees), so I can install my new 701 head.  Any suggestions?

Hey SkipHall,
As in most Manfrotto tripods this tripod should have 3 set screws underneath the head mounting surface. Unscrew these set screws and you should be able to unscrew the current head off the tripod by holding the center column and turning the head counter clockwise. Installation of the new head should be the reverse. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Where can I ontain a copyof the original User's Manual please?


From a Konus dealer-- however this appears to be a simple refractor telescope on an equatorial mount. ANY manual for a similar telescope can be used--

Here are all of meade's manuals. Look under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your scope.

I inherited a blue Skywatcher telescope about 4 years ago without instructions . it has D = 70mm and F = 900 mm printed on the side . it came with two eye peices and extender and a 45 Degree 'erecting...


Any manual for a 70mm (refractor?) style telescope will show you how to set this up. You never said what type of mount the scope is on-- Altitude-Azimuth, up down left right--- or an equatorial mount??

Anyway Meade has manuals for all of their telescopes available for free download. Go to the Meade site listed below and look under the REFRACTOR heading (or the 4.5 inch REFLECTOR) heading for one that is similar to your scope. They are all assembled and used in a similar fashion.

http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

and look at my TIPS on my profile page-- and read this web site-- to learn about the types of telescopes and mounts:

This is considered a toy telescope. Sorry. No manuals exist and you will not get any support at all on this brand.

Sorry. Next time you need to buy a real telescope. Something like this:

Need a manual or a phone number for the company


As you can see from the ONE review here:

http://www.dealtime.com/xPR-Fieldvision-Fieldvision-114-mm-Reflector

A manual does not exist for this imported telescope. This is just one of DOZENS of brands imported from China.

It is a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to be used.

Google
Polar Alignment

Reflector Telescope

Equatorial Mount

You will find hundreds of articles on how to use this telescope. Read my TIPS on my profile page and also read this web site:

302003 tasco manual needed


Yes, there is already a link posted on Fixya-

Here:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/7788977@N08/sets/72157610357951752/

This appears to be a small 60mm refractor style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to use it properly. Beginners should never buy an EQ mounted telescope as their first telescope.

However I have instructions on aligning the mount on the star Polaris on my profile page in the TIPS section. Read those instructions, and find a local Astronomy club. The members can help you with that telescope.

I WANT TO FIND A MANUEL FOR THIS TELESCOPE


You will not find a manual. However you have a reflector that is mounted on an equatorial mount. Meade has a very similar telescope and maintains a web site for all of their telescopes. Look under REFLECTOR heading for one that is similar to your telescope. They all assemble in a similar fashion.

http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

this one is very similar:
