You will not find instructions for that telescope. Using Google- Search under REFRACTOR 60mm for one that is similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion. The manual will NOT tell you how to use the telescope to find objects on the nightsky. It only shows you how to put it together.

Clear skies.

The Q was an instruction/handbook for a astral 400 telescope


It will be very difficult to find a manual for this old telescope. BUT-- the manual will only help you set it up-- it will not tell you how to find objects in the night sky.

I did find this discussion thread on the internet-
http://www.skyatnightmagazine.com/forum/surpised-how-cheap-telescopes-are-today-t124549.html

This is a typical refractor style telescope, VERY similar to dozens of other scopes. Go to YouTube and search for "refractor telescope " watch a few of the videos. This should give you enough information to set it up and use it.

Clear skies,

I have a newtonian telescope 76mm with SR4, H12.5 and H20. I have aligned the crosses up and can see through the viewfinder but nothing through the eye piece. Ive placed all the other lenses into the eye...


YOU MUST align the small finder scope with the main tube.

Point the scope at a distant object like the top of a telephone pole. GET the top in the center of the eyepiece in the main scope.

Then without moving the scope-- adjust the cross-hairs in the small finder scope so they line up on the same object.

Hi, a few days back I purchased Nexstar 4SE. I set it up exactly how it says in the manual still I cannot see any magnifying views from the eye piece. While aligning the telescope I can find the moon from...


Stars will always appear as points. It is not possible to magnify them enough to see them as disks because they are all extremely far away. A telescope will however show you stars and other objects that are too dim to see with the naked eye.

You will be able to see the planets as disks, and even features on the planets, such as the bands on Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and the phases of Venus, and also moons around some planets. There are other objects that will show more detail when magnified, such as nebula. You will be able to see a lot of craters and other detail on the Moon.

Your problem is simply that you are not pointing the telescope at these objects. This seems to be one of those telescopes that "automatically" finds objects, but these so called "go to" scopes only do this when they are set up properly. I can't say what step(s) you have missed, but clearly even if the scope thinks it is pointed at the moon, if you can't see the moon, it is NOT pointed there. The Moon will fill the field of view even with the least powerful eyepiece. If you are seeing stars as points, then the eyepiece is focussed and working properly.

I dont know how to use the eye piece to get a view that i need. the scope is put together the end caps are off but nothing is coming into view through the yee piece


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

If your scope is like the picture in your question, the focuser and eyepiece are on the UP end of the telescope. The mirror is the BOTTOM of the telescope, just like in the picture above.

Can't see out of eye piece


This is a reflector style telescope. The MIRROR is in the base! Light enters the front near the focuser and goes down the tube and bounces off the mirror and back to the front and through the eyepiece. The EYEPIECE end is pointed up.

Your scope TUBE should look like the reflector telescope on this web page:

Wish you had NOT bought this telescope. For about the same price you could have bought this:
http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=08942

The scope above has a 6 inch mirror which is almost twice the size of the scope you bought.
