Need a manual for a 60 mm refractor telescope. Can you email me one? I purchased it through Amazon

alignment of the optics are critical. refractor telescopes refract light linearly as opposed to reflector scopes, which bounce light from mirror to mirror.

Sounds like you may have an obstruction blocking the passage of light.

Where do I go to sell mt telescope,TeleStar 60EQ?

There isn't a used telescope store anywhere, you can try posting on Craigslist. I have bought a couple used telescopes there for about half of retail cost. The TeleStar 60EQ sells for around $60 new, so you can expect $30 to $40 if you post an online ad.

You bought a small refractor on an EQUATORIAL mount if it is like the picture above on the question.

These mounts must be polar aligned in order to work, NOT something that a child would be able to do. Read my Equatorial Mount TIP on my profile page. You will probably return the scope after you read it.

A friend of mine just purchased a used Polaris 60EQ-D telescope and asked if it can be used for terrestrial viewing. Are there any types of lens adapters to flip the view to right side up?

Yes they are called "erecting diagonal" like this one:*25-inch-45-deg-orion-correct-image-prism-telescope-diagonal

How do i put a telescope together without the instructions

This is a small 60mm refractor, on an equatorial mount. Sure wish you had NOT bought this scope.

First it is only 60mm about the same size as a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. You would be able to see and find more sky objects with the binoculars.

Second it is on an equatorial mount, which must be polar aligned in order to work properly. So you will need to line up the axis of the mount onto the star Polaris. You can read my TIPS on my profile page to learn how to do this.

They all go together in a similar fashion. Here is a very similar Meade telescope manual that you can use to help you assemble it:

I have been given a tasco telescope 49t-e i have no user manual (have not got a clue what goes where ... please help!

Here is a link to a Meade telescope similar to your telescope. They all go together pretty much the same way.

You apparently have a refractor on an equatorial mount. You must learn how to POLAR ALIGN the telescope on Polaris to use the telescope. I do not recommend equatorial mounts to beginners.
