This is a reflector style telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Take it outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

If it is on an EQ mount read my EQ mount tip on my profile page. The scope will need to be polar aligned in order to use it properly if the mount is an equatorial.

Cannnot see anything through the telescope


I know this may sound really stupid but with old Mead reflector I kept forgetting to take the cap off the tube. Seeing that it sets down inside a bit it's easy to miss.

Hi All, I have brought a Black TwinStar GIANT 6" MIRROR W TRIPOD -Reflector Telescope EQ Mount. I have successfully able to assemble every thing except the eye piece settings. could any one please help...


The eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it is your lowest magnification.

Put the eyepiece into the focuser and practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. The image will be upside down. NOTHING is wrong. All astronomical telescopes show upside down images.

You will also need to learn how to polar align the EQ mount. Read my tips on my profile page.

Who makes twinstar telescopes and how do i find


I suggest avoiding the Twinstar line of telescopes. These are sold by Taximarketer who sells a line of disappointing scopes including the Baytronix 150/1400. It is best to avoid Ebay unless you really know your stuff.

One reason is the lack of directions-- NONE!

However Meade telescopes maintains a web site with manuals for their telescopes. Look around the page and find one similar to your scope and download the manual for free.

Astronomy is a learned skill- I would suggest that you contact a local Astronomy club and attend their meetings and their free star parties-- ask lots of questions and see what kind of telescopes they use.
