We are looking for a telescope for our 8 year old (just posted last week for advice) and I guess one neighbor told another because she walked over with one tonight and said it's ours. She gave the impression she has no clue how to use it and said she hopes we can figure it out. I am JUST starting to look into what types are how to find one for us, and not looking into how to use them just yet, so I thought I would come here for help. I think one dial has to be set to latitude or longitude and another to something else... I don't know... It moves in all kinds of directions and I was able to use the 40mm eyepiece tonight to see into my neighbor's garage. They were with me in hopes I would figure it out. But it's super cloudy tonight too, so there was nothing in the sky to see. We have tons of stars on a clear night though.
Here is a pic of the scope and the lenses and other things. I don't know how to use any of it... yet. Thought I could get some pointers on what I have, is it any good, are the lenses any good, and what the other things are. Maybe a link to a good video on how to set it up. I looked up the specific scope and all I found was a long video of a guy with the same one, giving a review and it wasn't in english.
Thank you in advance for your help!! I numbered things to be helpful.
#1 I don't know what this is, it also says around the black rim "Quantaray 55mm OMC-1A Japan". almost every piece says Japan).
#2 I don't know what this is
#3 Janson 2x barlow (I know this is used to magnify even more but no clue how to use it.)
#4 is a lense "AH. 40mm"
#5 lense "H20mm"
#6 lense "SR4mm"
#7 I have no clue what this is or how to use it. says "T-NF Japan"
#8 has a mirror inside it and I'm sure it's something for the reflecting or something but again, no real clue what it is or how to use it.
ALSO not in the picture... on the bottom of #6 I realized is a piece that screws off and is similar looking to #2, but says "MOON" on it.
