This is a small refractor style telescope on a photo style tripod.

Put the small finder scope on the top of the main tube, put the diagonal into the back of the scope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal.

Take the scope outside during the day time and line up the finder scope with the main tube on a distant object-- practice focusing on the same object.

I am searching for a user manual for a KONUSTARAT 700 refractor telescope. Can you help me?? Thanks, Lars Sorensen


Only a dealer that handles this scope will have a manual. This dealer sells Konus scopes:

I don't see anything after initial assembly


This is a very simple REFRACTOR style telescope. Put the diagonal into the focuser. Then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time like a building off in the distance.

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 am looking for a manual for the Konus Digimax 90. They don't seem to be available. Can anyone help please?


No Konus manuals anywhere on the internet. However Meade and other manuafacturers do have manual web sites.

Look on this site under the REFRACTOR or the 4.5 inch Reflector heading. They all assemble in a similar fashion. So a Meade manual may help you figure out your telescope.

When the lens is inserted there is no light and no focus.


This is a small refractor style telescope.

Put the diagonal into the focuser at the back of the scope, and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. TAKE the lens cap off !

Read my tips on my profile page. By the way-- THIS is a diagonal--

you should be able to assemble this small refractor very easily. Mount the tube on the tripod. Put the diagonal into the focuser and then put the eyepiece into the diagonal --

I have a KonusMotor -70 Refractor Telescope that didn't come with a manual. I'm lost as to how to set it up and use it.. Help.


This is probably a refractor setting on an equatorial mount.

You will not find a manual. However Meade brand telescopes maintains a web site with manuals. They all assemble pretty much the same way. Look at this web site under REFRACTOR header for one that is similar to your scope.

Where can i get a copy of konuspace 500 manual


You will not find a manual for that telescope. However it is a REFRACTOR style and Meade maintains a web site of all of their manuals. Look under title header REFRACTOR about half way down the page, for one similar to your telescope. They all work the same way. Look in the back of the manual for hints on using the telescope.

No focusing


Most refractors will not come to focus without the use of the star diagonal or a drawtube extension tube. HTH, Geo.
