Hi,

he first thing you will need to know is does your telescope have a polar axis or not, that is, is it intended to track, or is it merely a point and look, or what we call Alt-Az. Alt means altitude and Az means azimuth, where Alt is the distance above the horizon, and Az is the direction in a circle around the horizon. If you have an Alt-Az mount, just skip the polar alignment step. If you have a polar axis, that is, your telescope is intended to track the stars, then find north, and make sure the polar axis is approximately lined up in that direction. It does not have to be too accurate, but make sure it is pointing pretty close to north. If you are not sure where north is, either use a magnetic compass, or try to find Polaris, the North Star.

Thanks.

I need a Bushnell Deep Space Series 420x60mmRefractor Telescope


DO NOT buy a Bushnell telescope! These are considered "toy" telescopes and are usually not suitable for Astronomy.

Instead buy a Dobsonian telescope like this one:
http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=08942

You cannot buy a useable telescope for less than about $200.

Can't figure out how to put the eye-pieces (3) on our Selsi Telescope 335x.


All eyepieces go into the FOCUSER end of the telescope. You never said if this is a REFRACTOR or a REFLECTOR style telescope.

On a refractor you have a lens in the front and the focuser in the back.

On a reflector the focuser is on the SIDE of the telescope near the front end.

The diagonal goes in first --- and the eyepiece goes into the diagonal -- if this is a refractor style telescope. Here is a picture of the DIAGONAL.

Manual or Instructions to fix Telescope


Here is the manual.

This is a reflector style telescope the focuser is on the FRONT of the telescope, the mirror is the BOTTOM of the telescope. All astronomical telescope show upside down images. It's normal.

I WISH TO SET UP A TASCO 40-114675 TELESCOPE CAN YOU SUPPLY INSRUCTION MANUAL


You will not find a manual for that small REFLECTOR style telescope. However the picture above-- that you show in your question shows the telescope mounted BACKWARDS actually pointed toward the ground!

Apparently FIXYA also does not know how to set up a reflector style telescope. The eyepiece and focuser end is on the UP end of the telescope with the mirror on the bottom end of the telescope.

Here is a manual for a MEADE brand telescope probably very similar to your telescope.

Telescope 402 power telescope Do you have a focusing tube for this telescope?


First that small telescope will never reach 400 power. The maximum magnification for any telescope is 50 times the aperture. Yours is probably about 2 inches, so 100 power is the max. They lied to you on the box. This is a typical small department store telescope sold by Toys R Us. We receive more complaints about this scope than just about any other telescope.

Read my Frequently Asked Questions TIP on my profile page.

If the focuser is broken, or the tube is broken you can try taking it back to Toys R Us, however, the repair would cost more than you paid for the scope, and parts are NOT available.

It doesn't seem possible to tighten the telescope to the telescope mount. The tightening knob seems too loose. Also, there is no way for us to get our fingers into the narrow space to tighten it.


Sure wish you would have NOT bought that telescope. It is a 50mm refractor which is exactly the same size as a pair of 10x50mm binoculars.

The binoculars will have better optics than that telescope.

If it is already broken? Can you return it? You cannot buy a usable good telescope for less than about $200. Here is a good beginner telescope.

How to build homemade astro telescope?


You can build a Dobsonian style telescope -- look here-
http://pages.sbcglobal.net/raycash/manualv2.pdf

Building a refractor would be lots more expensive! for the optics-- however you can buy this small refractor being sold now for the International Year of Astronomy 2009 -- and see how they are constructed--
