Can you remove the eyepiece from the telescope--- if you can -- GOOD, throw it away and buy a new one on-line at these web sites--

Eyepieces come in 3 different barrel sizes-- .965, 1.25, 2 inch

Yours is probably either a .965 or 1.25 inch.

    You CANNOT repair this telescope! -- your only fix is to try and remove the current eyepiece and find a replacement, as I indicated in my original answer which you reported as inappropriate!

    As you have probably found out -- the "fixed" eyepiece cannot be replaced at a reasonable cost --

I have a tasco galaxee 46-114375, in a move, I lost all of the lenses, refractor, and the manual. Where can I get replacement parts?


You cannot find a manual for this telescope. However you can buy replacement eyepieces they come in 3 sizes, .975, 1.25, and 2 inch. Measure the hole in the focuser.

See this web site, they carry many eyepieces and other accessories:

I have no manual for my galaxsee 45-060525


This is a simple small refractor telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2 x barlow if you have one.

Practice focusing on a distant object during the daytime- you are not focusing the scope properly.

Here is Tasco's manuals web site:

This one was given to me i think it was put together wrongis there a diogram to instal lenses properly.


Put the DIAGONAL into the telescope, then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. This is what a diagonal looks like-

Yes you can buy eyepieces at several retailers. Measure the hole. Eyepieces come in 3 different sizes: .965, 1.25 and 2 inch sizes.

My 9t eye piece was rattling and mislined. I took it apart cleaned lenses and wondered is there a lense location or direction?


Never disassemble an eyepiece unless you know exactly how to put it back together. Only the outer glass lens ever needs cleaning.

Without knowing exactly what link of eyepiece you have (they are all different designs) it's impossible to tell you which way the internal lenses go.

Your best bet may be to simply purchase another eyepiece.

Trying to identify older tasco telescope and put it together


There are only two types of telescopes --- REFRACTORS, and REFLECTORS-

The refractor has a lens on the front of the tube and you insert different eyepieces in the back-- the larger the number written on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification-- (DO NOT USE THE 2x or 3x barlow which you may have!-- this creates too much power for this small telescope!-- put it away and never use it!)

A reflector has a main mirror on the bottom of the tube, and a small secondary mirror under the eyepiece hole (focuser end) - front end-- put the lowest power eyepiece into the focuser.

Now with either type telescope go out side during the day and practice focusing on a distant object-- turn the knob SLOWLY. At night the moon should be the first target you try.

If you received what appears to be a smaller telescope -- that is the finder scope-- attach it to the top of the tube on the main telescope. Again during the day line up the small finder scope with the main scope-- look at a distant telephone pole (the very top-- and center this in the main telescope. Without moving the main scope use the finder scopes "screws" to adjust the cross hairs so they are pointing exactly where the main scope is pointed. Now you can use the small finder scope to point the telescope in the exact direction--

The moon should be your first night time target.

Good luck--

Hi I have just got a Tasco telescope space station and i have it all set up but cant seem to be able to remove the lense at the end of the telescope. How would it come off?? Thanks


I assume this is the refractor style model-- the "L" shaped device on the end is a diagonal -- the eyepiece goes into the diagonal. Loosen the set-screws.

What eyepiece do you have in the scope when trying to view the sky? (in mm)
I recommend starting out looking at the moon with the largest eyepiece you have (25mm, 20mm etc.). It is an easy target and is very impressive. Stars tend to look pretty much like little points of light in a refractor such as this anyway. Pretty boring.
Try Jupiter after you've got the moon down. You can work your way to Saturn's rings after that.

What eyepieces sizes have you used?
Try using the largest eyepieces you have (20mm, 25mm or higher) for a wide field of view. If your eyepiece is to small (maybe 15mm or below) you will have too much magnification and the moon will be a blur.
