Mounting an orion as guide scope


I just ordered an Orion 80ed eon to use as a guide scope. I also ordered a stellarvue sv102ed to attach to an atlas eq-g (that I just ordered also). What equipment comes with the eon and the atlas and what do I need to buy to attach both scopes to the atlas.

How do I attach telescope tube to eq dovetail mount?

You first have to get 2 tube rings. These must be the right size for your scope.

They will have hinges and clamp screws and at least one other hole for attaching to a dovetail rail. Then you need a rail, sized appropriately for your scope. They come in several lengths and 2 geometries, Vixen and Losmandy. Almost certainly you will need the first one.

There are some scopes with very fat tubes, like Schmidt-Cassegrains, where the rail attaches directly to the tube fittings.

Instructions for quantaray qt-80700

Can't help with manual. This is a toy scope with terrible optics and .965 eyepieces (Huygens design obsolete since 1700s). Most owners can not get the finder to align with the main scope.
You will learn to hate astronomy if you try to use it, Do yourself a favor and throw it out! Go buy a quality, inexpensive scope from Meade, Celestron or Orion, Orion tabletop dobsonians start at about $50 and have great optics,eyepieces, and a quite usable finder. They are simple to use and most can be mounted on a tripod.

I have a c-star t45375 telescope but no user manaual. How can I get one?

Sorry no manuals for that imported telescope being sold on Ebay.

However this is a reflector style scope on a very small equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to be used:

Just put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser and during the day time practice focusing on a distant object. Find a local Astronomy club and the members will help you with the scope.

Hello... I'm kinda new to all this, so please bare with me! I recently purchased a used Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ. The scope is in great shape and things look great through it. However, it did not...

First WHY would you use a erecting DIAGONAL in a reflector style telescope. Upside down images are completely normal for an astronomical telescope. You only need this diagonal for terrestrial viewing NOT for star gazing. ALL astronomical telescopes show upside down and or inverted images- it's completely normal.

If you cannot come to focus with the erecting diagonal, it's probably because the diagonal moves the eyepiece too far OUT away from the point where the scope comes to focus. Again-- you do not use those for night time sky viewing. Just stick the eyepiece directly into the focuser.

Missing the finderscope on an edu-science 525 power

Don't bother putting a finder scope on this. It is not worth it.Spend the money for a Meade or Celestron. Both have relatively inexpensive starter scopes.
Below is a good scope from Orion for under $100

Orion SpaceProbe 130ST EQ We cannot use the telescope because we cannot focus the 25mm Sirius Plossel eyepiece. When we look through the eyepiece, we see nothing. What should we do? Thank you.

You CAN focus the eyepiece-- take it outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

Make sure the end with the FOCUSER is on UP end of the tube. The mirror is the BOTTOM of the tube. Many beginners mount these scopes upside down!
