Celestron Refractor Instruction Manual 1995

That is it title, but here is what's inside:

1. a section on the "Premium 80," an 80mm achromat on an alt/az mount, 5 pages mostly concerned with the assembly and operation of the mount.

2. the "Great Polaris Refractors," It has 15 pages on the Great Polaris mount assembly and instructions, followed by one page each of simply the specs for the GP-C102 achromat the GP-C012ED scope, and those pages are about 2/3's blank. A pic of the ED specs are shown

3. Telescope basics, 8 pages

4. Astronomy Basics 20 pages, issues ranging from the ecliptic to a few more pages focusing on how to use the the GP Polar finder and setting circles.

5. 1 page on telescope maintenance, mostly how to clean optics, and frankly not great info

6. 4 pages listing Celestron accessories, all basic things like eyepieces, vibration pads, a little on 1990's photography adapters.

7. 3 pages of the Messier Catalogue and one page of bright stars.

68 pages, soft cover
Black and white with many line drawings
No photos
There is also a lot of text, but I have shown mostly pics of line drawings

I would recommend this to the collector, or to someone who is new and wants some basic introduction to the Great Polaris mount, or German Equatorial mounts in general.
