I have received my new Telescope and have some questions

Online Catalogue  | SBTC News and information pages, Click here. | Frequently asked questions | I have received my new Telescope and have some questions

When i was unpacking the big box everything was packed inside in smaller boxes but there was a small box with nothing in it. Is there something misssing?
No. The outer boxes are designed to fit several similar models of telescopes and some for example come with a motor and some do not. So quite often there is a box which is empty which is left in to ensure adequate packaging
The instructions talk about having a Red Dot Finder and an optical Finderscope but i can only find one in the box. Is there one missing?
No. The instructions i know seem a bit vague and this is because the Manufacturers only write a general set of instructions that do for several modelss.
Your telescope only comes with one finder which will be a red dot finder for some models and an optical finder for other models. They both do the same job but in a slightly different way.
I need some guidance on how to assemble or use the Telescope. Can i call SBTC for help?
Yes of course you can call SBTC on 01709 586086 anytime. If we cannot get to the phone straight away then leave a messaage aand we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Can i obtain a carying case for my astronomical telescope?
Most telescopes do not come with a carrying case and the manufacturers do not make one.
It is far more convenient and cheaper to improvise depending on your own situation.
If you travel a lot to dark sky areaas i would wrap the delicate parts in some old blankets to prevent damage in the boot of the car. You could find a suitable bag for a tube assembly at a Music shop or a fishing shop or even on the market stalls.
Many years ago scopes came packed in substantial wooden boxes with all the components strapped down with wing nuts. This took so long to unpack and assemble the telescope that many people just could not be bothered to get the scope out and use it!
The more convenient the telescope is to grab and go the more use it will get so it is best to leave as much assembled as possible.
