This is a small refractor telescope-- they pretty much all work the same-- BUT don't expect to get more than 100 power out of the scope. Yes I know the box said 600 power but it's a lie. In my 8 inch telescope I rarely get above 250 power and my scope is many times larger than the one you have--
Now put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope-- the LARGER the number the LOWER the magnification. During the day time practice focusing on a distant object --- AND line-up the small finder scope on top with the main telescope tube. Look at the top of a distant light or church steple, or telephone pole. Without moving the telescope adjust the small finder scope by loosening and tightening the screws around the tube holding the finder scope-- put the crosshairs on the same spot as the main telescope.
Now you can use the small finder to locate objects in the sky-- the moon should be your first night time target.

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--

SOURCE: Problem with image
Stars are blurry period thats just the way they are. and with the worlds atmosphere (air) you'll always get a slight waviness...even when viewing planets.

The end with the focuser. Then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. I believe this model is a REFLECTOR, if it is there is a mirror in the bottom of the scope.
REFRACTORS have a lens in the front of the scope.
Then read my Frequently Asked Questions TIP on my profile page. The picture you selected shows a REFRACTOR telescope.

You will not find a manual for this telescope. However Toys R Us sells this brand. The store may allow you to copy the manual which is inside the box of a new telescope.
We receive more complaints about this "toy" telescope than just about any other brand. Read this also:
