simmons reflector telescope model 6450
Forgot to mention, I got it from a friend who doesn't have a manual. She doesn't even remember where it came from.starvixen wrote:Help....

They have no email support.
For some helpful articles which can be used with any telescope, see my articles:
For the basics on how to setup and use your telescope, see my article

Since telescope eyepieces are the most important accessory for any telescope, you may also wish to do more reading with my article, Ten Telescope Eyepiece Questions
I strongly recommend a local astronomy club. An astronomy club is the quickest way to learn both astronomy and telescopes and astronomers are almost universally willing to help a beginner. A basic book on telescopes and astronomy is also a good option. Try "Nightwatch" by Terence Dickinson, available at any large bookstore. Two excellent magazines, available in stores or the internet are Astronomy Magazine and Sky&Telescope.
