You will not find a manual-- for these small telescopes. However Meade has a web site with manuals for their telescopes. Find one that is similar to yours and download it for free.,

SOURCE: How to use telescope at night?
Many people have the same problem-- with these small telescopes you are stuck with seeing only the moon, and several other planets, and maybe a few bright star clusters.
These are all TINY objects (except for the moon).... when you look through the telescope you are looking at a section of sky about the size of your fingertip held at arms length-- the scope must be pointed DIRECTLY at the object. Practice on the moon first-- and then try to find Saturn which is up in the sky right now-- it looks like a dim (slightly yellow) star.

Very had to find a manual for these small telescopes--
Meade telescopes a large manufacturer, maintains a web site with manuals for all of their telescopes. Look through the ones on this web site and download the manual that most closely matches your telescope.
maybe this manual???

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.

You will not find a manual for that telescope which is sold by Toys R Us. However Meade and Bushnell both maintain web sites with all of their telescope manuals--- here:

Look around the web sites under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your telescope. They all assemble and are used the same way.
