Trying to overhaul/rebuild a Hardin STAR HOC 8-4 7.9" f/4 Newtonian reflector with equitorial mount. Has been sitting out in the desert for who knows how long and is covered with fine desert...


You will not find any instructions for this particular mount and tube.

However here is a video on Telescope mirror cleaning-- and a web site on disassembling an EQ5 mount which is similar to your moun.

We left our telescope out on a covered deck. Now the mirror is badly pitted. can you grind it? or does it need replaced? (deep space hunter 10 ")


The mirror must be recoated -- the pitting is in the coating NOT in the glass--Google mirror recoating.

My Harding Deep Space Hunter 10 will not sit still. It is constantly tilting up with the slightest touch or tap. Any thoughts?


I have never seen one of these--

can you NOT tighten up the Altitude knob tension by adding some teflon washers or felt washers?

I would just replace the entire finder scope with a better quality-- here is one retailer that sells replacement finder scopes:

I need a manual for the deep space hunter 6 inch purchased around 2002. model number DSH-6


Why would you need a manual for a simple Dobsonian reflector telescope.

The Company does not exist-- anymore.

A manual only showed how to assemble the telescope, it DOES NOT tell you how to USE the telescope to find objects in the sky.

This is a good beginner telescope by the way. Here is how to get started using it:

1. During the day time align the small finder scope and the big scope on the same distant target. Then you can use the finder scope to locate and POINT the main tube to objects in the night sky.

Also during the day put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. This is your LOWEST magnification. Practice focusing on a distant object. The image will be upside down--- this is perfectly normal. Nothing is wrong with the scope.

The moon should be the first target at night.

I need a Bushnell Deep Space Series 420x60mmRefractor Telescope


DO NOT buy a Bushnell telescope! These are considered "toy" telescopes and are usually not suitable for Astronomy.

Instead buy a Dobsonian telescope like this one:
http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=08942

You cannot buy a useable telescope for less than about $200.

I have a Celestron Newtonian telescope, 76mm, 700mm. I am trying to locate the finder scope bracket to replace a broken one. I cannot find any other numbers, but it is about ten years old.


Simply buy another finderscope.

Many internet retailers sell finder scopes. Here is Orion Telescope:
