You will not find a manual-- for these small telescopes. However Meade has a web site with manuals for their telescopes. Find one that is similar to yours and download it for free.,

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.
maybe this manual???

You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade maintains a web site for their telescope manuals. Look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

TOO much magnification! Hate to tell you but the MAXIMUM magnification for any telescope (all things being perfect-- like optics, and sky conditions) is 50 times aperture. So max for you is about 125 power.
Normally only about 30-40 times aperture is possible. So about 90 power is your normal max magnification.
We see this every Christmas. People buy scopes that say 275 power or 500 power on the outside of the box. It's a LIE!
Even in my 8 inch LX90 I rarely go above 200 power, and only when the sky is clear and very stable. Use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it which will be your lowest magnification.

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:

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.
