The .pdf manual for the JMI MAX computer may help as I believe they're made by the same manufacter (Tangent Instruments)as the Sky Tour computer.

Hi! I lost my original manuals in a move and called Televue. They sent both the operating guide manual and the sky database manual for less than $15. They always seem happy to help.

FWIW, inside the database manual, I keep a sheet with the magnification, exit pupil, and FOV listed by eyepiece for each scope I have. Most of this information is available on Televue's Eyepiece Calculator in the eyepiece section of their website, and you can calculate or extrapolate most of the info for non-TV eyepieces (their website shows you how to do this). I find the information helpful for general viewing information, navigation, and using a star atlas.
