You need to align your finder scope with the main tube see how to do this here http://www.scribd.com/doc/11827347/Tasco-Telescope-Manual

Cannot see anything through my tlelescope


  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

MI have a 90mm cassegrain gps computer astrophotography telescope. I am able to locate items on the viewfinder/spotter scope but unable to view it thru the telescope, what could i be doing wrong


Your finderscope is NOT lined up with the main tube. Point the scope at a bright star or planet or even the center of the moon. Get it CENTERED in the main eyepiece of the telescope. Then without moving the main tube adjust the crosshairs on the finder scope to point at the same spot.

I can't see anything out of the large scope


Use the 20mm to view an object (building, tree etc.) far away during the daytime. Align the finderscope to the object.
To view the moon, leave the scope out to equalize the temperature for at least 1/2 hour. Use the 20mm and no barlow. Point the scope towards the moon by sighting along the barrel of the scope, then use the finder to zero in on the moon. You may then switch to the 4mm eyepiece. for a more magnified view of the moon. You will have to keep moving the telescope because of the earth's rotation. The higher the magnification, the more you will have to adjust the scope. Because of the cheap finderscope, finding the planets will be difficult. Best to always sight down the length of the scope to get you close. The planets will be small and indistinct.
This is not a astronomical telescope! May be used for views of the moon but the cheap mount is not suitable for other planets. Max power would be 225x NOT 420x as advertised. The erecting prism is for terrestrial use only.
Nothing discourages an amateur astronomer more than a toy store telescope. My advise would be to use this scope for nature watching and go buy a good telescope (Meade, Celestron, Orion etc.). Even Those 60mm refractors are superior to this! A descent scope would cost a minimum of $200

I do not know how to use my Baytronix Astronomical Telescope... AT ALL, any help would be great! Thanks


should be a spotting telescope, a smaller lens that you use to spot what you want or at least a peep site to align it. Then you look inside the lens and see if what you pointed at is there. If not, you adjust the spotting scope until it does. Use the moon (careful on a night as tonight or the next few as the moon light at this stage is going to be very bright and can cause damage to the eye) so you see a close up distance relative at first. Then you can spot on just about any object up there and you'll be very close. The planets are a good object to begin with. www.skyandtelescope.com is a good site to start with and they have monthly magazine as well. Happy Gazing :)
