This is a small reflector style telescope, on an Equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to use it. You can also read my tips on EQ mounts.

Need to know how to use the telescope after it is setup


Lorraine, join a club or get instruction book. An optical telescope which uses lenses is known as a refracting telescope or a refractor; one which uses a mirror is known as a reflecting telescope or a reflector. Besides optical telescopes, astronomers also use telescopes that focus radio waves, X-rays, and other forms of electromagnetic radiation.

Need to set up orbitor telescope


Which model? Do you have the user manual?
What do you need to set up?
Have you already mounted the scope on the tripod?
What kind of mount does it have - equatorial or alta-zimuth?
Specifically what is the thing that you are trying to find out?
You must be able to answer some of these questions or else no one will be able to help you.
Google the internet for help on using a telescope.
Join a telescope discussion forum.
Your question lacks major information.
Sorry, but you must provide more information for us to be able to help you.

Please help we have a mars explorer 74/700, very little used and the last time put away, the instructions for setting up appear not to have been included (not by me i might add with my borderline OCD!). ...


I believe this is a Bushnell telescope. All of the Bushnell manuals are on this web site.

Look down the page for your telescope model.

Yes, there is already a link posted on Fixya-

Here:

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.

You don't need an owner's manual, you need to join a local Astronomy club and attend their meetings and star parties. Here is a list of Astronomy club's by State:

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