Here are all of Meade Telescope manuals--

Find one under either REFLECTOR or REFRACTOR that is similar to your scope. There are no manuals available for National Geographic, but they all assemble in a similar fashion.

That is a tiny 60mm telescope not much larger than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. You will not find a manual for that scope.

Sorry, but you bought a toy telescope. We call them department store telescopes. Read my TIPS on my profile page. Sky objects are very tiny and most of them are very dim. You should be able to see Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and a few of the brighter sky objects that you can SEE without a telescope.

Buy several good Astronomy books like "Turn Left at Orion" and "Nightwatch" and download the free monthly star chart at www.skymaps.com ; these will help you learn the sky and point the telescope. USE ONLY the eyepiece with the largest number written on it. This is your LOWEST magnification. About 100 power is the MAXIMUM for that size telescope.

DO NOT USE THE barlow. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.
