Need setup document for 8" Tasco 38T reflecting telescope

We were given a Tasco telescope, but no setup instructions. I could not find an exact match...this was the closest. It is a Tasco 38T D= 8" f/6. It has a 3X Barlow lense which is multi-coated. We have no experience whatsoever with telescopes so any help will be appreciated. Peace, MomV

Full instructions! Scope is basically the same as here:

Have fun and start out with your lowest power (biggest number) eyepiece and without the barlow. The moon is a nice place to start (and keep coming back to...;-)

ABO in Miami, FLA will sell a manual, or repair this telescope. They bought Tasco's assets and parts after it went bankrupt. Bushnell bought the rights to the Tasco name (only).

There is a website that has a selection of manuals for telescopes for free download. It is unlikely that they will have the exact one you want, as Tasco made a large number of different models, but it is worth a look- at THIS LINK

Look on the Meade web site for one of their manuals. Look under refractor or reflector for one similar to your telescope.
