Here is a link to an item being listed on ebay called a equatorial mount. That is the term for a precision telescope mount. This may be much more that what you need, but the price is tempting.
Take a look.

This telescope was passed down to me without a manual so I have not a clue as to how to work it. Is there one available on line that I could print off? ( Mine is the F 500 D 114 mm

This is a REFLECTOR style telescope probably on an equatorial mount. They all assemble in a similar fashion.

Go to Meade brand telescope's web site and look under the 4.5 inch REFLECTOR heading for a manual that is similar to your scope. You can download it for free.

I got a Meade Model 4600 at a yard sale with no info on it. I think it is missing a lens. Is there any way I can find out. Also, is there any written material or directions I can get for it? Thanks. K

This is a reflector style telescope on an Equatorial mount.

The mount must be polar aligned in order to use it. Read my TIPS on equatorial mounts on my profile page.

The eyepieces slip right into the focuser. The LARGER the number written on the eyepice the LOWER the magnification.

Here are all the Meade manuals, find your telescope near the REFLECTOR topic header:

Here is a link to a Meade telescope similar to your telescope. They all go together pretty much the same way.

You apparently have a refractor on an equatorial mount. You must learn how to POLAR ALIGN the telescope on Polaris to use the telescope. I do not recommend equatorial mounts to beginners.

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.

this one is very similar:
