HELP! The red dot scope/finder for manual telescopes
Posted 20 January 2011 - 06:36 PM
I cannot do any stargazing without it.
(It won't restore itself automatically will it, since it is now turned off?)

I did find and remove the battery. It wasn't quite that clear what to do, or easy to do without needle nose pliers and an ice pick...and a gentle, patient touch. (Thanks Bill)
Haven't replaced it yet, but found the Lithium CR2032 on the internet for less than $3. I will look tomorrow around my area so as not to wait for a mail order delivery.
I especially wanted a Meade (have a 114mm. equatorial mount, reflecting telescope) for the ease of a red dot finder, and do really love it, but I might also look into your "right angle" pick for a replacement. (Thanks Phillip).
Thanks for your responses.

The battery was easy to find, super cheap at "Fryes Electronics" ($3 for a pack of 2 lithium cells), and so easy to put back in..."a caveman could do it."
I didn't skip a beat, didn't miss out on a beautiful night...didn't even have to do much readjustment with the scope...for/with Jupiter, Betelguese, Orion's belt w/the Great Nebula, Aldebaran, Aur/Capella, etc.
Still a Newbie!
