    How to use:
    First of all pull out the clear plastic sheet that is at the front and
    on the bottom - you can see this in one of the photos. This allows the
    battery to make contact so that the red dot appears when you switch it
    on.
    Next, try the finder by switching it on with the small rotary control on
    the side. Look through the hole at the front of the finder and you
    should see the red dot and be able to make it brighter or dimmer by
    using that rotary control which is also the on/off switch.
    Now set your scope up as normal but put the red dot finder on instead of
    the usual optical finder.
    Point your telescope to something like a TV aerial or a chimney -
    anything about that size will do, and the further away the better.
    Looking through a low power eyepiece (25mm is ideal) find the object by
    adjusting your telescope and focus the object. Adjust the mount using
    the slow motion controls so that the object is right in the center of
    the view.
    Adjust the finder so that the red dot is exactly on the object you were
    looking at. You can adjust it by using the two larger wheels. The one on
    the right at the front does the left/right direction and the one at the
    back on the bottom does the up and down.
    Switch it off and wait until dark
    You now use it by switching the finder on, then looking through the
    finder so that the red dot lines up on to the target you are going to
    observe through your telescope. Once the red dot is exactly over the
    star or planet it should be exactly in the center of your eyepiece view.
    Remember to switch it off once you have found your target to save the
    battery.
