    Hi Rosa,

    If there's a local astronomy club in your area, contact them.  Chances are good that a club member has the same type of telescope, or is familiar with it.  

    Having someone explain how to set up, align, and use a telescope in person makes it much easier to learn and understand the process.

    Good luck with your new toy!
