Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, to my understanding, the Astrolon 525X Telescope is marketed in the US as a complete set and I doubt if just a part would be readily available. Offhand, I suspect that it was manufactured in Asia. Perhaps it may be to your advantage to contact the Asian exporter, Nu Look IPI Enterprises Ltd. Although their model number (TS761/TS768) may be different, pls confirm. The Alt-Azimuth Mount for their model is shown below.

    Hi, Tissot built the Astrolon telescope, but does not provide parts or support, as the telescope is considered not serviceable due to its low cost.

    You can buy a new telescope for $20 including shipping here.

We don't know how to operate the telescope! instructions only covered assembly! how to operate?


HI mthrede,

What you need to do after the assembly is to get both the telescope and the small sighting scope Calibrated so that they are both looking at the same object.

Start in the daylight and use the main telescope to scan your local landscape. What you are looking for is the likes of the tops of telephone poles, radio towers, or such to lock on to. You may need to use that focus knob down by the eye piece to clear your view. After this is done, adjust the little sighting scope to where it is looking at that same object. You are now ready for some night time viewing.

I got a telescope: emerson 50x/100x and i cant see anything in it


My son just got one too, and you can look down the street to see trees just fine, but in the sky, you will likely only be able to see the moon. It is bright enough to be seen with the 100x lens.

Everything in telescope is backwards


These are normal for an astronomical telescope. You can get erector prisms to fix it for terrestrial use - but astronomers just live with it.

My son got a telescope and we are unable to focus on anything.


Use the lowest magnification eyepiece which is the one with the largest number on it--- DO NOT use the barlow which will DOUBLE the magnification!

Go outside and focus on a distant object (during the daytime) and practice focusing the telescope. Move the focus know slowly in and out until you get a sharp image.
