Yes it will focus --- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the scope. DO NOT use the 2x or 3x barlow.

Practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away during the day. The moon should be your first night time target.

I have a TASCO telescope model 40-114675 incompletely assembled


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. I believe you have a REFLECTOR style telescope with a 3.5 inch mirror in the bottom.

Point the focuser end toward a distant object and practice focusing during the day time.

Later you can try the higher power eyepieces with the SMALLER numbers written on them. I belive one of the long pieces is a finder scope that mounts on top. AND the other is a 2x barlow which multiplies the eyepiece power by a factor of 2 times. Don't use the barlow. You will not need it.

The image will be upside down, which is normal for an astronomical telescope.

Never heard of that telescope.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Go out side during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

Bushnell Deep Space Series 525x 78-9500 We didn't assemble when we received as a gift a couple of years ago and now realize that the assembly instructions were left out of box. We assembled telescope but...


The erecting prism can be used for both terrestrial and star gazing-- put it innto the scope first.

The 3x barlow probably will NOT be very useful... it triples the power of any eyepiece. Your small scope cannot go much over 100 power-- before the image degrades.

Put the eyepiece with the BIGGEST number written on it into the erecting prism which you previously stuck into the scope... now go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

The bigger the number on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.

Something leads to believe I'm either missing something real fundamental or my telescope is broken. Please help
