THE protective cover is the FRONT of the telescope!!!

The focuser is on the front like the picture above. TURN the scope around -- you have it pointing at the ground right now!

Possibly they included the wrong size counter weight? Normally you can balance the scope with the counterweight included with the scope.

There are TWO balance directions-

One uses the counterweight--

The other depends on the position of the TUBE in the scope rings front to back. BOTH directions should be in balance.

This is a reflector style telescope the focuser is on the FRONT of the telescope, the mirror is the BOTTOM of the telescope. All astronomical telescope show upside down images. It's normal.

I built up my 660 luminova think i did it right no manuel still cant see anything


This is a reflector style telescope with a mirror on the bottom. The focuser end is the UP end. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x or 3x barlow if you have one-- practice focusing on a distant object during the day time and NEVER point the scope at the sun.

A new telescope has a rubber piece on the end with screws cant see through is it supposed to be removed ?


That is the end with the MIRROR! Turn it around-- the focuser is on the UP end of the telescope and the PICTURE that Fixya uses (above) is ALSO mounted upside down! The scope above is pointed at the ground!

Many beginners mount the scope backwards.

How do i set up my tasco luminova telescope up my luminova


I always laugh when I see the picture shown on your question that FIXYA provides! Why? Because the scope is mounted backwards in the picture and is pointed TOWARD the ground!

All of Tasco manuals are on this web site. The MIRROR is the bottom of the telescope. The focuser is the UP end of the telescope tube!

My Tasco Luminova is set up right. But i am still see it upsidedown? Why is that?


Because the PICTURE that Fixya uses for the question (SHOWN ABOVE) is upside down! The silly fools have the scope pointed at the GROUND!

Turn the scope around so the focuser end is pointed up.

I have a tasco luminova 900x114 telescope and seem to have a problem balancing it. The counterweight seems too light and the scope falls away even with the weight right at the end of the rod? have you ever...

There are TWO balance directions-

One uses the counterweight--

How do you remove the dust cover-- model40-114675 tasco luminova


Believe it or not the PICTURE in your question shows the scope mounted UPSIDE DOWN. Guess Fixya does not know which way to point it!

Your scope should be setup like this picture on the Meade manual web site:

http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/062002Jupiter114EQ-D.pdf

Notice both the focuser and the finder scope are on the end of the scope POINTING UP toward the sky. The lens cap simple pops off or unscrews.
