SOURCE: who makes twinstar telescopes and how do i find

I suggest avoiding the Twinstar line of telescopes. These are sold by Taximarketer who sells a line of disappointing scopes including the Baytronix 150/1400. It is best to avoid Ebay unless you really know your stuff.

One reason is the lack of directions-- NONE!

However Meade telescopes maintains a web site with manuals for their telescopes. Look around the page and find one similar to your scope and download the manual for free.

I really don't understand the actual problem? You have the manual-- have you assembled the scope according to the manual?

If you have --- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope-- this is your LOWEST magnification. (Never use the 2x or 3x barlow that comes with these small telescopes -- it is useless-- just too much magnification. )

Now go outside during the daytime and point the telescope at a distant land object and practice focusing-- the moon should be your first target at night. Spend a little time during the day and line up the small finder scope which is usually mounted on top of the tube --- with the main telescope. Once they are lined up you can use the finder like a gun sight to point the telescope.

This is a refractor telescope. Download a manual from Meade. They all work about the same way.

Unable to get lenses to work on ioptron twinstar telescope have the 36mm af 40• can't see anything the picture shows how it is set up


Take the lens cap off-- put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Take it out during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. The moon should be your first target at night.

Could i convert my c8 to a go to computer and what would be involved


No, sorry the old C8 cannot be converted.

You might consider selling the C8 and upgrading to a more recent goto scope, OR deforking the tube, and mounting it on a GOTO mount like the alt az Ioptron Pro, or an EQ mount like this one:
