Hello, I wondered if you could help me. My Grandfather died, and I have his telescope which I don’t think he ever got to use properly as he fell ill. All I know, is that it’s called a Helios (I can’t find any part numbers or manufacture codes on it?) and it looks practically identical to yours (It just says “Helios” where your says “Skywatcher”).

I believe all of the equipment is there, and it’s already pre-setup. I have no idea how to use it, and I don’t even know if I’m finding the correct manuals online.

Would you know anything about this or offer any advice, on how I go from knowing nothing, to being able to use it?

John Lower says:

Terrible echo on sound.

Hi Tom, I’ve just bought this secondhand and only this minute set it up….certainly a lot better than my Tasco LOL.
Would enjoy if you could do an update so I can learn from someone who knows all about this model…cheers
