I have to put a nut on the inside of the tube while turning a screw on the outside. THe instructions tell you how to REMOVE and CLEAN the telescope, but not put it back. The tube is almost as tall as me so...

I guess if you have nuts you have a model with an aluminum tube. Put a washer on the screw, put the screw through the hole in the tube, put another washer and a nut on the screw THEN screw the screw into the cell mount. When you get all the screws in the cell holes and the mirror centered you tighten the nuts to the tube to keep the screws from turning. You don't put the nuts on the inside of the mirror mount, you should be able to get a wrench on the nuts because they are outside the mirror mount, by the tube. Here is a picture and a link to the instructions. Good luck ! I hope these are the right instructions, too.<br /><br />http://www.astronomics.com/main/documents/new_scan_docs/star_hopper.pdf<br /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

I can't, but customer service helped (it was off when I posted this thread) They're pretty nice and helpful.
