The first step is knowing where Saturn is and when from your location.Have you used the CD-Rom that comes with it to chart the sky from your location? If you don't have it, there are a couple of free programs you can download that will do this as well. Try www.stellarium.org

Need help setting the telescope


None of these come with a manual-- the weight counter balances the tube--- Check out these web sites for pictures which will help you assemble the telescope--http://www.telescope.com/control/category/~category_id=refractors/~pcategory=telescopeshttp://www.universetoday.com/guide-to-space/telescopes/refractor-telescope/http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Refractors/90AZ-ADR.pdf Here is a similar Meade telescope manual---

Missing the eye piece for the Meade saturn 60az-m


Ebay is a great resource for eyepieces, i would suggest a 26mm ma.the eyepiece should drop in. if not you might be missing the image erecting diagonal. when the eyepiece is installed you should be looking perpendicular at the tube.

Is it possible to set up the meade telescope ds-2114ats-lnt to have it set up outdoors and view indoors. Set up remotely in other words. I have the cables and software to navigate indoors but still have to go outdoors to view through the eyepiece.


It may be possible but expensive. You have to be able to control the scope remotely, AND transmit the image in the eyepiece inside. Both are possible, however expensive, more than you paid for the entire telescope!

Telescope is only good for viewing moon...help!!!


Your scope is 565mm focal length with a 60mm objective which makes it f:9.5. (telescope focal length divided by lens diameter)all this means that the optics are capable of viewing larger planets. nebula is a bit of a stretch. maybe under exceptionally dark skies with at least 30min. of dark adaptation. brighter objects like m42 or m31 should be visible, bear in mind that only very large telescopes will resolve the slightest hint of color in nebulosity. the rest of us are reserved to gray scale. i would suggest using a 26mm eyepiece plossl if available. next make sure your finding system is aligned to the scope. this is best done during the day at a distant object like a radio tower. center the object in the eyepiece then align the finder.next get your self a good sky map like stellarium software a freebie and a fav. to ensure your looking at what you think your looking at.a word on eyepiece selection. magnification is calculated by dividing the focal length of the scope by the focal length of the eyepiece. for instance the scope is 565mm the recommended eyepiece is 26mm so the magnification would be around 22x.a rule of thumb for optics is about 50x per inch of objective. which means your scope is good for about 100x. so by the math you would use a 5.6mm e.p. to achieve 100x, however as optical powers increase field of view decreases making it difficult to find objects. find your object with a wide field e.p. then switch to a higher power to zoom in. if the image gets fuzzy at high power attempt to refocus, if it doesn't clean up either your asking a bit to much from the scope or seeing conditions in the upper atmosphere may not be ideal. what ever you do don't give up there are some amazing things to see out there.

Image is upside down (inverted)


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images this is normal.You can buy an "erecting prism" to use for terrestrial viewing from many on-line retailers here is one: This will flip the image so it is not upside down.http://www.amazon.com/Bushnell-780103-1-25%C3%93-Format-Erecting/dp/B000EY2ZFK

What lens do i insert into scope to view the moon


The moon is big so use the 25mm. The Barlow will have a multiplication marking on it 2x 3x etc. A 2x Barlow lens will effectively double the power of the eyepiece you are using. Do not use the erecting eyepiece for anything other than land viewing. Erecting eyepieces generally reduce the amount of light reaching your eye and thus reduce brightness of the faint objects in the sky.So basically just place the 25 mm lens in the focuser and point the scope at the moon and you will be amazed at what you can see and how bright it is.

I received the telescope as a gift. It was set up when I received it but no directions. I cannot view anything from my telescope. Where can I get dirctions on the set up


Look under BOTH the Reflector and the Refractor manuals located here:http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.htmlYou did not say what brand or type of telescope you have?
