Highest theoretical power is 250x but it has to be a perfect night. konus does have very good optics but at f/4.3 it is a low power, wide field scope. So 500mm fl / 2mm eyepiece = 250x. Eyepieces of that high power have eye relief issues as well as blurry edges unless you want to pay $500 or more Here is a good eyepiece which will give you 96x and 20mm eye relief. I own the 12.5mm version http://agenaastro.com/agena-5-2mm-ed-eyepiece.html BTW I rarely go over 150x with my big scope, the higher the power also equals seeing more atmosphere
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: http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/Meade4500.pdf
