You did not say what brand and model number--

However-- Meade telescopes maintains a web site with the manuals for all of their telescopes. Find one that is similar in style to your telescope and use it to learn about how to assemble yours.

There are really only three styles of telescopes reflector (with a mirror), refractor with a lens in front, and catadioptric with a lens in front and mirror in back--

and only two kinds of mounts-- ALT AZ (up down left right) and equatorial (usually has a counter weight and needs to be polar aligned)-- the general instructions are usually about the same--

Here are the manuals-- which usually include how to use a telescope--

Try the refractors and reflector manuals first--

Good luck-

I don't know how to use the telescope. It didn't come with directions on how to use it or put a few pieces together.


Since all reflectors and German equatorial mounts work about the same anyone familiar with telescopes can show you how to use it. No manual needed. Just contact a local club for the help you need. There's a strong bias against Tasco since so much of their stuff is junk, or "toy" telescopes.

http://www.astronomyclubs.com/
http://www.skyandtelescope.com/community/organizations

and look at this web site under the header 4.5 inch REFLECTOR for a manual similar to your telescope. They all go together the same way.

maybe this one is similar to your scope. ?

I have an Astrolon Telescope +8, 288 power and I can not see anything through it, please help me, I just have in the case a very limited manual to put it together


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one.

Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

Need insturctions for putting it together


You never said the brand name or number?

However Meade maintains a web site with all their manuals: Find one similar to your telescope under either REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR.

They all go together about the same:

Need a manual or directions to put telescope together


The eyepieces have numbers written on them-- the bigger the number the LOWER the magnification. Start with the eyepiece with the BIGGEST number-- practice focusing the scope during the daytime on a distant object..,..... once you do.. switch eyepieces .... and see how much closer everything looks.

Try for the moon as your first target at night--- you can download a free star chart at www.skymaps.com

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--
