Is there a "C.D." so I can use my 5829 gamera on Micosoft 7 computer?

This looks like a Konus microscope. It normally works with Windows Vista.

Not sure how well it is supported. But if you go to Konus website and ask a question you may get an answer. The company is based in Italy.
You may need special drivers for it.

How do set up a konus 800 60mm f/13 refractor telescope and operate it

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.

When i look in the eye piece everything is upside down
all telescopes are set up this way, but binoculars are what i prefer i own a pair of 15x70. The images are upright. you can view Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Comets, Orion nebula, Andromeda galaxy, Space shuttle, Space station, and my favorite is trying to find the "iridium Satellite flares". go to the link above and i can get you in easy..(without registering) get to the home page and click on "from data base" scroll down to find your country,Click on that, then type in your city or one nearby and then "submit", page click on the highlighted city and then your lat and long are now entered and then go back to home page and click on "next 24 hrs", then click on the highlighted ("time" eg: 19:54:44") and it will show you how close you will be from the flare..then click on the "Altitude" or "Azmith" highlights and it will teach you how to spot these...then go back to home page and click on "what time is it" and synchronize your watch to this time and within +or- a couple seconds you look in the sky and you'll see a phenomenal sight, if its a -9 that will be brighter than Venus...but they only last for about 5 to 7 seconds.

I am struggling to set the telescope us as the

Is it like THIS telescope?

The focuser mechanism is at the FRONT end of the telescope. The Mirror is in the back-end or bottom of the telescope. This scope is on an equitorial mount, which means it must be POLAR ALIGNED in order to work. You can get a rough polar alignment by using the star Polaris (the North star).

We never recommend an EQ mount to beginners. Polar alignment introduces an additional beginner frustration with using the telescope. Read these web sites to get an idea of polar aligning a telescope.

Their are TWO knobs on the telescope that control Right Ascention and Declination movement. Declination IS your latitude, so the angle must be set to where you live. I am at latitude 32 degrees N --- so the angle is 32 degrees, which is where Polaris is above the horizon.

Practice focusing during the day time on a distant object.
