The 14.5" Teleport

Opening the Teleport is as easy as 1-2-3



If you have used the wheels for transportation, remove the wheels (and cover) and set the Teleport upright to begin.

Remove the top plate and snap it on the side of the scope or set it aside. Grasp the secondary cage to extend the struts. Once the struts are fully extended, grasp two opposite struts to make sure its all the way up. 

Pull up firmly on each strut. You will feel the positive stop. Hold the strut extended against this stop as you tighten its clamps.  Repeat this process for the other three struts. The positive stops will help maintain collimation from one setup to another.

Unlock the Teleport from the vertical. Unclip the finder scope from its storage position on the secondary cage and clip it into position. Insert an eyepiece in the focuser, and you're ready to view!
