I have one and here is a link to the manual.  It actually works quite well.  Mine is labeled as a Lafayette.

This little beauty showed up on my doorstep yesterday.  One of the very best 50mm scopes.  Thanks to the wonderful CN'er who passed this on to me.

I have exactly the same scope labeled a Jupiter. Very crisp images. My son (5) says it's cute.

I'm pretty certain the Jupiter is the same scope - just a bit older.  Jupiter (the planet) was quite remarkable through a 20x Unitron microscope eyepiece, but I am going to need to flock the tube.  There was a bit of flare - not bad, but unnecessary.
