  10. Hello Peter, It is confusing i dont have a clue what im doing have a quick start guide all in pictures ,,tells yopu how to put telescope together ,,tells you to put battery into finder, then says you are now ready to stat using your astromaster. but when you start reading the manual ,you realise you have to balance it and then it starts getting difficult, when this lockdown comes and we get back to normal,i will see if i can find a club to join. Keith
