Safest way is to use a camera puff blower brush. A little dust will not affect the image. Do NOT touch the mirrors with a cloth as the dust will scratch the coatings. For really stubborn stains, you can rinse with distilled water and let air dry.

There's a good reason to ignore dirt, aside from reducing the things to worry about in life. A dirty lens or mirror can always be made clean, but a scratched one is scratched forever. Cleaning causes tiny scratches, or sleeks, if you don't do it right, and maybe even if you do. A few sleeks don't matter, but a lot of them will. So clean your optics rarely.
the traditional method for dusting optics is to brush lightly with a camel's-hair brush. Sold in camera shops, these brushes have soft bristles with minimum tendency to scrape grit against a lens. Brush very lightly. Store the brush in its container or a plastic bag.Camera shops also sell cans of compressed gas for blowing dust off lenses. Be careful with the kind that use liquid propellants; these have a reputation for spitting onto the glass and leaving a residue if the can is tipped or shaken in use. Blowing (instead of sucking) with your own breath is also likely to leave spit marks.

Tip

Fixed tripod mount.


I fixed my problem to my meade polaris 114EQ-D (36x 114mm) reflecting telescope. I took a piece of small pipe with a dust mop conection in it with a hole through it and took a 1/4-20 x1 1/2 in. long and bolted them together. It works great.

This is normal for an astronomical telescope. The inverted view is not considered important when viewing the heavens, however, if you attach an erect-image diagonal such as this one, between the eyepiece and the scope, it will correct the situation.

You can get a manual on this web site:

This is a reflector style telescope. with mirrors-- probably on an equatorial mount which needs to be polar aligned in order to be used. Read this:

Yes they are almost duplicates either manual will work. They all assemble and are used in the same way.
