    Welcome to the forum.

    How's this: http://www.tasco.com/products/manual...e_30060403.pdf
    It's not the exact same model, but it is probably close.

    Welcome to the forum but just remember that the max magnification (for astronomical use) you will get from that scope is around 60-80 and NOT 300+ as the manual states, but even at 60x you can see the ring around Saturn
