You can contact Tasco directly through their web site, tasco.com. Depending on the specific Luminova model, virtually identical models are offered by Celestron and Meade. In any event, you should be able to get the replacement yoke directly from Tasco. Give them a call at (800) 423-3537and I would think that their customer service department will be happy to help you out. Replacing the yoke is pretty easy to do.

SOURCE: 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--

Yes, there is already a link posted on Fixya-

This appears to be a small 60mm refractor style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to use it properly. Beginners should never buy an EQ mounted telescope as their first telescope.

However I have instructions on aligning the mount on the star Polaris on my profile page in the TIPS section. Read those instructions, and find a local Astronomy club. The members can help you with that telescope.

Image is upside down - why?


Yes that's correct. All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. Nothing is wrong with the scope.

You can buy an "erecting diagonal" for terrestrial viewing.

Here is one:
