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.

No-- you have a TINY telescope even smaller than 10x50 binoculars.

You won't find a manual--- from Tasco--- however Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals-- find one similar to yours. They all go together about the same.

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

Here are several retailers:

Hi there, I am having a problem with a Tasco 40-076420H telescope in that the image is on an angle. Any suggestions?


All astronomical telescopes show inverted images-- it is completely normal. If you want to do terrestrial viewing you need to buy an "erecting diagonal", like this one:

Everything is upside down! why? how do i fix it?


Astronomical telescopes show upside down images. No up or down in space. To invert the image would require more glass and or mirrors.

You can purchase an erecting prism to use in viewing terrestrial targets.

Just came into a used tasco 302048 . Everything is upside down!!!


the scope is made for both terrestrial viewing and astronomical. In order to see terrestrially upright, you need an inverting STAR DIAGONAL. The eyepiece will do nothing for inverting the image. you might have 2 diagonals in the kit that came wih the scope. the diagonal is the part that fits into the scope. then you place the eyepiece in the diagonal. if you have 2 diagonals , one is a 90 degree angle,(astronomical) and one is a 45 degree angle, (terrestrial). the eyepieces change the magnification of the image. the bigger the number (9mm, 20mm, 26mm,) the smaller the image. the smaller the number , the bigger the image gets. the number is inverse of the image. Hope this helps.

Is inverted image normal


Most astronomical telescope show upside down images-- no problem as up or down do not exist in space!

You can buy an "erecting" diagonal for terrestrial use.

Just bought a cheap, used Tasco telescope. Images


I'm not sure what type of telescope this is (refractor, reflector, etc.) but it's normal for most telescopes to have inverted images. There is no up or down in space so it doesn't really matter when you view an astronomical object. You just want to keep that in mind if you use a moon map so that you can get the correct orientation. However, you can get moon maps with inverted images.

If you wish to view land or terrestrial objects you can purchase an image erecting prism to turn everything right side up. Depending on the telescope it may reverse the images from left to right when it does this.

I hope this helps.

The image is upside down in my tasco galaxseer. Please help.


This sounds like a name for an astronomical telescope. I do not own/may have not seen one, but anyway here goes.

Terrestial images do/will appear upside down. This is normal. Just to add to the confusion some telescopes LEFT and RIGHT can be reversed.


First a few Q's & A's
===============
Can you use different eyepieces?

If 'yes' then what is the diameter* where it enters the scope drawtube/foucuser? (the most popular size is 1.25inch the other is .965inch).

You can purchase what is called an "image erecting prism". This should solve your problem. These are available as an accessory from on-line astronomical dealers. Sorry, but I do not how much you will pay.

As there are many telescope manufacturers 'out there', prices do vary. I cannot remember whether Tasco have one made under thier name. If it helps Tasco are owned by Celestron.

Good luck and clear skies.

The telescope is intended for astronomical viewing, where orientation is not that important. When looking at ground objects, it will be inverted and reversed (that is why binoculars have 2 sets of prisms). To use on land objects, you would need to add a 'terrestial viewing adapter', although those are generally intended for refractors - the newtonian has a diagonal that 'corrects' the image in 1 direction.

You are only going to be able to see the moon and several of the brighter planets-- and maybe a few bright star clusters -- like M44.

Practice focusing during the daytime on a distant object-- and only use the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it-- try to locate a local Astronomy club and attend one of their free star parties.
