I spent much time on Meade's website, and found lots of manuals for newer scopes, but none for the 130 Newt Autostar. In fact, when I clicked on some of the Meade links, I got a "403" error, "Forbidden". Like this:
You don't have permission to access this resource.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Subject: [BackBayAstro] Manual for Meade 130mm Newt
Does anyone have a manual for an old Meade Autostar 130mm Newtonian reflector? The telescope was donated to the club today, and I do not have an operator manual or instruction manual for it.
If you have one, let me know, and I will make a copy of it for this scope. I want to fix it up to give to someone who needs a telescope.
