Question
Can you please tell me where I can find a manual for this telescope? We just got it at a flea market today for $15.00. I believe it is all there but have no idea how to use it. It would be greatly appreciated if you could help.
Thank you,
Mary

Answer
HI Mary

Jason scopes are legendary for causing problems for people.  Here is a link to a series of pages that might help you:

The difference in model number shouldn't matter...

And this site has some directions on how to make a better mount for it, so you can actuallyuse it more often:

Hope that helps
