This is a small telescope (50mm) about the same size glass as a pair of binoculars. Regardless of what the instructions or the box says, you will never get more than about 100-125 power out of this scope. So the 2X barlow they gave you is really useless.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser, do NOT use the barlow. Practice focusing on a distant object during the daytime. At night the moon should be your first target. You probably have 2 eyepieces a 25mm and a 10mm.

Very had to find a manual for these small telescopes--

Meade telescopes a large manufacturer, maintains a web site with manuals for all of their telescopes. Look through the ones on this web site and download the manual that most closely matches your telescope.

SOURCE: edu science reflector telescope instructions 600x

This is a small refractor telescope-- they pretty much all work the same-- BUT don't expect to get more than 100 power out of the scope. Yes I know the box said 600 power but it's a lie. In my 8 inch telescope I rarely get above 250 power and my scope is many times larger than the one you have--

Now put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope-- the LARGER the number the LOWER the magnification. During the day time practice focusing on a distant object --- AND line-up the small finder scope on top with the main telescope tube. Look at the top of a distant light or church steple, or telephone pole. Without moving the telescope adjust the small finder scope by loosening and tightening the screws around the tube holding the finder scope-- put the crosshairs on the same spot as the main telescope.

Now you can use the small finder to locate objects in the sky-- the moon should be your first night time target.

SOURCE: I was given an edu science astrolon 525 power

You can buy a diagonal and finder-scope from many on-line retailers. You may need a .965 inch diagonal. Measure the hole in the back end of the telescope.

Diagonals are made in 3 sizes.... .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes.

Here are two retailers-

SOURCE: manual for an edu science telescope F=700mm

You will not find a manual for that telescope which is sold by Toys R Us. However Meade and Bushnell both maintain web sites with all of their telescope manuals--- here:

http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html Meade manuals

http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html Bushnell

Look around the web sites under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your telescope. They all assemble and are used the same way.

I have a edu-science telescope that connects to the internet and is powered so that it rotates and finds the stars for you. I have lost the disk that belongs to the telescope. It has Dia=76mm & F=700mm...


Contact Toys R US that sell this telescope-- or use either www.stellarium to control the scope.

www.stellarium.org

The disk is not actually needed it is just a planetarium software like Stellarium. All the goto controls are inside the hand controller.

Look at the picture-- the diagonal goes in the back of the telescope first-- then the eyepiece goes in the diagonal.
