ds-2000 refers to the model line of the scope. ds-2130 the 130 refers to the diameter of the objective lens in mm. I have a ds-2114. Where the objective lens is 114 mm in diameter. as far as the manual goes everything else should be the same.

Sorry about Meade's responses, but their website has a download section for the telescope manuals - you may not find one that matches exactly, as they produce hundreds of models, but one that is close should suffice. As for eyepieces, there are several good vendors out there; Orion Telescopes, Meridian etc. Just check the barrel size; either .965" (Japanese standard) or 1.25" (American standard).

Meade has all of their manuals on this web site:
You never said what is the NAME of the scope. Anyway find your telescope on this page and download a free manual.
The LARGER the number written on the eyepieces the LOWER the magnification. Start out with the eyepiece with the largest number written on it and practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

Testimonial: "Thanks Joe for the great direction on getting the manual for my telescope. I'd done some searching, but your tip quickly pointed me to the exact place to be looking--most helpful."
SOURCE: have this telescope model 60AZ-m
or under the REFRACTOR header -- just go through the refractor manuals until you find one that is similar to your scope -- they are all assembled and used in a similar fashion.
