Instructions Manual Hi, Someone recently gave me their Bushnell Telescope but they could not find the manual that it came with. At the end of the telescope there appears to be a lense cover that unscrews but when I unscrewed it the reflecting mirror was attached. Is there somewhere I can download the owners manual (I have searched for one to no avail) or can you tell me how to view through this scope? I have general telescope knowledge yet this has me baffeled. Thanks for any help or direction you can point me in.

I BOUGHT THIS BUSHNELL REFLECTING TELESCOPE AT A YARD SALE,,,NO INSTRUCTION MANUAL AND i AM LOST AS TO HOW TO ALIGH IT. THE LOCATOR SCOPE WORKS FINE, BUT WITH AN ERECTING LENS AND A 5MM (THE LOWEST i HAVE) I STILL SEE NOTHING BUT MOTTLED GREY IN THE MAIN SCOPE..PLEASE HELP THANKS, CONFUSED

Can't focus my telescope


If there is nothing on the objective lenses or eyepiece lenses then it most likely needs collimation. This is where you adjust the secondary mirror while viewing an out of focus star. You need stable sky conditions to do this.There are most likely three small screws at the front of the telescope and these are what you use to adjust it. As one screw is loosened then another is tightened. Do this in very small increments. If you have your manual it should outline how to perform this. If not go to this web site: http://www.astrosurf.com/legault/collim.html. It will show examples of how objects look both in and out of collimation. There is a section further down the page for SCTs.A very handy tool for this is to replace your screws with Bob's Knobs (http://www.bobsknobs.com/) . These replace the screws and allow you to adjust it by hand instead of a screwdriver.The other focusing problem I've experience with my Celestron SCT is to have the focus knob loosen up and then slip as I turned it so that I could never focus with it.Good luck and clear skies!-jodair

Bought a Geovision Precision Optical Omega Reflector telescope with a manual from a garage sale, please help locate the instruction manual, or tell me how to get the view right side up.


The view through an astronomical telescope is always upside down. When your looking at stars and planets, it makes no difference. If you want terrestrial view, get spotting scope - that's not what reflectors are for. If you still insiste on view right side up, you'll have to buy and inverting eyepiece or adapter and probably spend more than you paid for the scope.

I was just given a telescope and the only markings are "Polaris by Meade". I believe the telescope is an equatorial, but I am a biologist and not an astronomer. The dimensions of telescope are 33" long with an O.D. of 5 1/2". How do I identify the model? When I was given the telescope, it did not have a manual or any viewing lens. I would like to obtain a manual and viewing lens, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


It's a Meade 114EQ-D that is the model--- a reflector style telescope on an Equatorial mount.You can find a manual on the Meade web site here:http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.htmlLook under the 4.5 inch REFLECTOR Heading.

I have an Orion Skyview 8 Deluxe Equatorial Reflector Telescope Diameter 8" 200MM FL 800MM .F/4 Porobolic Primary Optics I've lost my manual showing how to assimilate. At one time I found a web site showing this information, can you tell me what that site might be or tell me where I can get the manual. Thanks Rita Rector 870 287 4573

How to focus telescope lens for city viewing?


No no manuals. The smaller the number written on the eyepiece the GREATER the magnification.However many astronomical telescopes show everything upside down. This is normal -- no up or down in space. You can buy and erecting prism diagonal for terrestrial viewing which will turn the image right side up.http://www.scopecity.com/detail.cfm?ProductID=1775

I can not focus the telescope, i need a manual, where can I found a manual?


Here is the link to the manual for your telescope.http://www.tasco.com/products/manuals/SpaceStation6LIM_49060700_49070800_49114500.pdfIf you can't get it to focus you may have assembled it incorrectly.

Lost vision The telescope was working fine until I was trying to match the view through the smaller spotting scope with that of the main telescope, and suddenly I could faintly tell I was aimed at the moon by a soft glow alone, but could no longer actually see details nor the usual brightness of it. I've taken the scope apart and cleaned the lenses and mirror. I can see beautifully if I remove the eyepiece, but of course I'm just looking at the mirrors inside at that point. When I replace the eyepiece, all I can see is that very faint glow which, when focused, gives me that funky view of the inside of my own eyeball like when you get your eyes checked at the optometrist's office and they shine that bright light in your pupil. Any idea what's happened here and how I can fix it? Maybe I need a new eyepiece?


Your telescope is a "Newtonian," as such it requires regular "collimation" Collimation the alignment of the optics. The mirrors must be lined up properly for the telescope to deliver a good image to the eyepiece. Your scope sound like it is way out of collimation. My guess is that the diagonal (secondary) mirror has rotated in it's mount. There are three basic tools for collimating a Newtonian the Sight Tube, Cheshire and Autocollimator. To get your digonal aligned correctly you need a sight tube. Rather than spend a lot on these consider making your own and keep an eye on eBay offerings. Don't bother investing in a laser collimator, they simply don't do the job unless you go for the very best. From some help with the collimation process check these links. http://www.astronexus.com/node/6http://www.amateurastronomy.com/collimate.html The 60 page pamphlet "New Perspectives on Newtonian Collimation," Fourth Edition by Vic Menard and Tippy D’Auria runs $10, but if you really want to do it right it's worth the money.

I have an edu science refractor telescope. it was being scrapped by the local school because they didn't have anyone that knew how to use it. It has no markings on the body. the focus eyepeice says 76mm or 700mm. can I find a manual? lacking a manual how can I tell if it is functional. I have the 2 eyepeices. It also has what looks like a tracking mecanism, but could be just right/left and up/down manual controls.


Hi.Manuals for Edu-science telescopes are not available on their download page.Contact Edu-science specifying the model of your refractor. You will receive a copy of the manual in PDF format. Here the contact page.This page may also help you to find out the model of your telescope.Regards.
