Lost manual and cannot see anything through the telescope at the moment.

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

See my frequently asked questions TIP on my profile page-- take the scope outside during the day time, put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal, and put the diagonal into the rear of the scope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

What do you use the barlow lesns for?

The Barlow lens goes between the diagonal and an eyepiece. It doubles (2x) the magnification of the eyepiece used.It does this by halving the f/ ratio of the scope.
Eyepiece alone gives 35x; barlow with eyepiece =70x.

Note: this scope comes with an erecting eyepiece and is NOT suitable for atronomy use (other than perhaps the moon)

My friend has the tasco 49 telescope, but unable to view anything- he has no manual for operation please forward installion, and operational manual by email

This is a simple nrefractor telescope. Put the diagonal into the focuser and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

The manual has assembly instructions -- it does NOT tell you HOW to use a telescope to find objects in the night sky. Locate a local Astronomy club and the members will help you.

How to use the lents 1.5X ,2X , 3X Barlow lents

They multiply the magnification of the eyepieces. Insert the barlow first and then insert the eyepiece into the barlow.

SO--- let's use the 2x as an example. If you have a 20mm eyepiece, then with the 2x barlow it becomes a 10mm eyepiece.

I have a tasco 302911 D+114mm F+500mm telescope

You are NOT focused properly. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. Turn the focus knob back and forth slowly until the image is in sharp focus.

Telescope will not focus on moon,stars etc. will focus on ground targets. i know there are 3 different optics and i know there use.are there up grades to make this new telescopes work? i e-mailed tasco of...

You won't get anything from TASCO - these are considered toy telescopes. Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2X barlow it is useless in such a small telescope.

Your first target should be the moon -- practice focusing on the moon until you can do it easily.

I have an old Tasco Telescope #271808 with a Barlow Lens 2x magnification D=76.2mm f-1200mm and are looking for instructions on how to work it. If anyone could help that would be wonderful.

This is a small refractor style telescope--- most iof them assemble exactly alike. Look through the Meade manual page for one that is similar to yours and download it for free.

Yours is similar to this one--

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

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- do not use the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing with this eyepiece during the day time on a distant object like a telephone pole or a building.
