Question about Zhumell Commodore Brass Nautical Telescope 8040-COMM w/FREE UPS

1 Answer

Inability to focus on close objects

My Zhumell Commodore brass telescope is an extremely handsome instrument. However, I find that I cannot focus on anything closer than about 50 meters. The focus knob doesn't help. Is there any other adjustment I can make to allow me to focus on closer objects?

Cordially,
Lesley

Thats most likely its focal point. 50 yards you will have to unscrew the view lens and make an adapter out of a paper towel roll and keep working with it till you get what you want. Its just the way it was made.

Need an erecting diagonal for tasco 11TR


Why? are you going to use the scope for terrestrial viewing -- bird watching etc etc

You do not need it for astronomical viewing--- no up or down in outer space.

Here are some:

These are usually sold in 1.25 inch size-- measure the hole in the focuser.

I bought an old Tasco 11TR reflector telescope at a used store, but it does NOT have any eyepieces nor manual. What should I buy to at least make this 'scope useable for moonwatching?


Eyepieces are available from many on-line retailers -- measure the hole in the focuser. Eyepieces come in 3 sizes, .965, 1.25, and 2 inch.

The .965 is very hard to find. Here are two retailers

All of Tasco's manuals are on this web site:

Dented telescope tube


HOW bad? If they are small they will not affect anything. Contact your local astronomy club and have one of the members look at your telescope.

Cannot get fine focuser to work on Zhumell 8" Dob


Focuser could be broken. Call a dealer and see if you can purchase a new focuser-- or a replacement focuser(which you can do).

OPT is a really good internet dealer--
