This is a small refractor style telescope. You will not find a manual for that telescope. However MEADE telescopes maintains a web site for their REFRACTOR telescopes. They all assemble and are used the same way.

Look under the REFRACTOR heading on this web site for a manual similar to your telescope:

Why are images in finder scope upside down


Hi Cheryl:
Funny you mention that.
It's been that way with astronomical telescopes since I was a kid, and that was a long time ago. I think the thinking was that adding another lens to reverse the image would not increase the magnification, and since you're looking at stars, it really doesn't matter if they are upside down.

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:

Where can I ontain a copyof the original User's Manual please?


From a Konus dealer-- however this appears to be a simple refractor telescope on an equatorial mount. ANY manual for a similar telescope can be used--

Here are all of meade's manuals. Look under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your scope.

Do you have a user manual?


This is a TINY 50mm refractor telescope. The same size as a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. Why would you need a user manual? Put the eyepiece into the telescope and FOCUS!

I need a user manual . Where can I find one


This is a small refractor style telescope on an equitorial mount.

You will not find a manual for that specific scope, but Meade maintains manuals for all their telescopes. Your scope is very similar to this one:

http://www.meade.com/manuals/m285/index.html

I suspect you do not know how to polar align the telescope. This article will explain polar alignment which must be done to use that type of telescope mount.

We have the pink twinstar model 50600 telescope 50mm and lost the instructions prior to using. Is there anywhere online we can get instructions on how to use it as we can't seem to figure it out at all.


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

Look under REFRACTOR:

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.

Need help setting the telescope


None of these come with a manual-- the weight counter balances the tube---

Check out these web sites for pictures which will help you assemble the telescope--
