I am assuming that this telescope has a long tube, maybe three feet long.
If there are any immediate questions, please post them and we can definitely answer them.

The AZ mount is simpler to operate in that you simply push/pull it around. If you have fine tuning knobs, the directions of motion will not match up with the movement of stars and you have to adjust both directions.
With the EQ, you have to line up one axis with the celestial North Pole, near polaris, and set up the angle on the indicator to match your lattitude. After that, the scope swivels according to the celestial corrdinate system rather then simply going up/down and left/right. You only have to turn one knob to move with the sky.
Each type of mount has its advantages and disadvantages.
Hope this helps,
