I think you are asking for a replacement focuser. You can probably find one here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-5-or-6-Telescope-Reflector-Tube-1-25-Newtonian-Focuser-Metal-Plastic-NEW-/360936594869?hash=item54097f5db5

A manual is another question. These scopes are imported and no manuals are available. However the manual only has assembly instructions it does not tell you how to use the telescope to find objects in the night sky.

Find a local Astronomy Club and the members will help you set it up-- very easy once you see it done 1 time.

Clear skies.

Manufacturer is unknown for this scope, but it probably originates in China and is resold with the National Geographic brand name, 150$ seems a little high for a used one. I would probably price it at 100-125$ depending on the condition and the included accessories, if any.

You will not find a manual for that imported telescope. NEVER buy scopes from Ebay, craigslist, or any of the big box stores unless you know what you are buying.

Most of them are imported and have NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT!

Need a user manual for an NG114AZ telescope


It sounds like you have a refractor telesscope on an alta-zimuth mount. Maybe the following manual for the Orbitor 1208ss will be helpful. This is a manual for a refractor similar to yours.
Click on the following link to download the manual:

This is what the refractor telescope looks like:

Manual for national geographic NG-76AZ telescope


The NG76AZ is made by Citiwell, but the only manual I can find is on retrevo for the 114 (the adjustments are the same, though). If you have a specific question about using the scope, post it here or go to cloudynights-dot-com, it's a forum & they have a beginners area that's really helpful!

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TELESCOPE NG76AZ where can i get a solar filter and additional lenses etc for above 76mm telescope


Do NOT attempt to look at the Sun through a solar filter! These can crack from the heat and you will be blinded instantly.

Most telescopes use a standard fitting eyepiece with a 1.25 inch outside diameter barrel. You can measure the mount where the eyepiece goes to make sure that yours is this size, then search on eBay or Amazon for "1.25 eyepiece" and you will find many available. None of these will be made by National Geographic, but any make will fit.

The other variable will be the focal length of the eyepiece, which is what determines it's power. The power of the scope will be the focal length of the main objective divided by the focal length of the eyepiece, so a 9mm eyepiece will give a higher magnification (and be dimmer and harder to focus and find objects) than a 20mm eyepiece. It is usual to have two or three different focal length eyepieces for viewing different objects.

You will find a large variation in prices, which is partly due to the difference in quality and type of construction of the eyepieces. Kellner eyepieces are simple and cheap, whereas Possl or orthoscopic ones are more complex and cost more. There are reasons why people will pay more for the better eyepieces. Avoid eyepieces marked with the letters "H" or "SR" before the focal length.

Can I have installation guide for the product NG114AZ


There are no manuals available for that imported telescope. However it is a reflector style telescope with a mirror in the bottom, and a smaller secondary mirror underneath the focuser.

The FOCUSER end is the UP end of the tube, the large mirror is the bottom.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2 x barlow if you have one. Take it outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. The image will be upside down-- this is NORMAL with all astronomical telescopes.

Read my TIPS on my profile page-- objects in the night sky are tiny-- smaller than the tip of your finger held at arm's length. The scope must be pointed directly at them to see anything.

Can you tell me where i can buy an image erector, thanks


Yes, but it will probably cost almost as much as you paid for the scope:

here is one:

All astronomical telescopes show upside down images, it's normal. The erecting diagonal is only used for terrestrial day time viewing, of land objects.

Everything is upside down its an inexpensive national geogra childs telescope when you look thru it everything is upside down


Yes all astronomical telescopes are upside down! No up or down in space!

You can buy an erecting diagonal for about $45 from Orion Telescopes to use for terrestrial viewing.

National Geographic NG70CA Telescope .... help with


Your small telescope will never get beyond about 100 power --- the maximum resolution is calculated as 50 times aperture under perfect conditions!

Use the eyepieces with the LARGEST numbers only and don't use the barlow.
