You never said what reflector you own? or what type of MOUNT it is on? However here is Meade's web site with manuals-- look under the 4.5 inch reflector heading for one that is similar to your scope. They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

SOURCE: images viewed are upside down

oh this is normal,because when looking at stars it really doesnt matter if they are inverted,but by leaving out the erecting lenses you get more light and less distortion. so you need an erecting lense to see images in the daytime,call bushnell@18004233537,im sure they can sell you the right adaptable piece....good luck...larry@reichinstruments.com

SOURCE: edu science reflector telescope instructions 600x

This is a small refractor telescope-- they pretty much all work the same-- BUT don't expect to get more than 100 power out of the scope. Yes I know the box said 600 power but it's a lie. In my 8 inch telescope I rarely get above 250 power and my scope is many times larger than the one you have--

Now put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope-- the LARGER the number the LOWER the magnification. During the day time practice focusing on a distant object --- AND line-up the small finder scope on top with the main telescope tube. Look at the top of a distant light or church steple, or telephone pole. Without moving the telescope adjust the small finder scope by loosening and tightening the screws around the tube holding the finder scope-- put the crosshairs on the same spot as the main telescope.

Now you can use the small finder to locate objects in the sky-- the moon should be your first night time target.

SOURCE: I purchased a science tech 675 X reflector

This is a Fisher Price toy telescope. You will not find an operational manual.

Return the scope, it's considered junk. After you return it, consider a reflector on a Dobsonian mount as your first telescope. Like this one:

and read my telescope TIPS on my profile page.

I have inherited a Bausch and Lomb 780200 telescope with no instructions as to how to set it up. I have it working but do not have the equatorial mount properly adjusted.


Is this your telescope?

If it is you can use a similar manual from TASCO-- look on this page for a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount.

http://www.tasco.com/pages/instruction-manuals/

They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

You will not find a manual for that scope. It is a REFLECTOR style scope -- so download a Bushnell brand manual from the web site below and use it to help you assemble it correctly-- all reflectors are assembled in the same way based on the MOUNT.

In need of a manual for a orbitor 3500 telescope


Is this your telescope?
http://ottawa.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-hobbies-crafts-Orbitor-3500-Telescope-W0QQAdIdZ200032598

If it is--- this is a simple REFLECTOR telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned to Polaris in order to use it. See my TIPS on my profile page for instructions on aligning the mount on the North star Polaris.

You will not find a manual -- however Meade makes a very similar telescope and they post all of their manuals on this web site.

I believe this one is VERY similar to your telescope.
http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/062002Jupiter114EQ-D.pdf

Here is the page with all the manuals. Look under 4.5 inch REFLECTOR header and download one for free. They all assemble and are used the same way.

Need to see assembling instructions because I got it on separated parts. Txs.


If it's like the picture it is a reflector style telescope mounted on an equitorial mount. Meade has a very similar telescope, and Meade also has a web page with all their manuals. They all go together about the same way.

Look under REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope and download a manual here: http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

This is very similar to your scope.
