    Telescope: Where do I start with this thing?

    My neighbour "inherited" this telescope from someone a while ago and has no interest in learning how to use it, so I asked if I could take it over from him and figure out how to use it.

    I have never owned or used a telescope before, so I don't know the first thing about such things, but I am keen to learn.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have tried Googling, and it has only confused me! Seems that these gadgets are more complex than I first thought.

    I think you use the top site as a guide to where you wish to look in the heavens.
    Depending on what image you want to see, you will select an eye piece.

    Anyway a start maybe to go here
