I have just acquired a Meade 16 Starfinder myself. It looks just like yours, but with a white tube. I have a manual that I can copy for you if needed.

I just scanned and now have the original Meade DS-16 manual in .pdf format, along with the 48RS dual axis corrector system manual, but can't attach it because it says the file is too large. Suggestions?? Or I could email it to you.

If you are able to upload to the Classics wiki that would be great
