3. Using the telescope
3.1. Setting up the telescope
1. Attach telescope (1) to horizontal mount (6)
2. Insert angle prism (2) into holder (4) and secure with locking screw (7)
3. Place the erecting lens or one of the eyepieces (9) into the angle prism.
The telescope comes with a horizontal mount, i.e. you can position it horizontally or
vertically.
By using eyepieces with or without the 1.5 x erecting lens you can achieve the following
theoretical maximum magnifications:
Eyepiece
6 mm
20 mm
Magnification
60 x
18 x
Magnification with
erecting lens
90 x
27 x
3.2 Using the telescope
The maximum magnification depends on the type of object you wish to observe. As a rule
of thumb, magnification should be 1.5 to 2 x the diameter of the lens to obtain the best
picture.
Most celestial bodies are best viewed with 75 to 100 x magnification.
A lower magnification is recommended for observing stars. This produces a wider view
and the desired objects can be easily found.
Maximum magnification is only recommended for clear objects located not too far away.
This produces a good resolution and detailed observation at high magnification.

The 1.5x erecting lens not only produces a higher magnification but also a sharper image.
This is particularly advantageous when observing the countryside. Insert the erecting lens
into the eyepiece holder of the telescope and than one of the eyepieces into the lens.
3.3 General information
Telescopes are high-quality precision instruments. The following information should be
observed to ensure their long-term optimum performance.
• Never point the telescope directly into the sun as this could cause blinding or serious
irreparable damage to your eyes!
• Keep the telescope as still as possible. Use the supplied tripod.
• Spotting scopes are susceptible to excess heat and humidity.
• Use a dry, soft cloth to wipe water splashes (salt water splashes) from the telescope and
then dry with a dry, soft and lint-free cloth.
• Blow away any dust or particles or remove using a soft lens brush. To remove dirt or
fingerprints from lenses use a soft, lint-free cloth, rubbing from the centre of the lens in
circular motions.
• Rough cloths or excessive rubbing can scratch the lens or could irreparably damage the
coating.
• Do not use glasses cleaning cloths, as these can also damage the coating.
• For thorough cleaning, a lens cleaning fluid can be used. Never apply the lens cleaning
fluid directly onto the lens but soak the cleaning cloth with the fluid.
