Question about Tasco Galaxsee 46114500 (500 x 114mm) Telescope

Open Question

Need a manual for Tasco Astronomical Reflector Telescope 450 x 114, 11 T-R

I'm not sure what number you need to find the correct manual. The numbers on a metal tag attached to the barrel of the scope is 51130. The box says TPK 368-985-Jr. This was a gift from years ago and I'd like to get the scope working. I may be missing a piece, but without the manual, I cannot be sure.

SOURCE: 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--

SOURCE: Need a manual/instruction booklet

You will not find a manual for that small telescope. However Meade maintains a web site with all their manuals.

Look under REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope. They all work and assemble in the same way.

How much does a tasco 302675 telescope cost/


It does not matter what it costs! Do not buy a Tasco telescope. Very poorly made, some even have plastic eyepieces and plastic lenses!

Check out this web site and others for a better, higher quality telescope.

http://www.telescope.com/control/main/

I would also suggest that you look at a Dobsonian mounted reflector like this one:

Tasco 40-076420 for terrestrial viewing


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images-- no up or down in space!

You can buy one of these to ERECT the image-- make sure you get the correct barrel size usually 1.25 inch although some of those TASCO scopes are .965 inch. Measure the hole--
