Ido not know how to assemble it. The instructions are generic for all their telescopes. Where do I out the different lens that came with it? How do I install them? Help please.


The lower the number on the eyepieces the HIGHER the magnification. The 2x barlow DOUBLES the magnification of each of the eyepieces. To start just put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser, and use that ONLY until you learn how to focus properly.

The eyepieces fit right into the hole in the focuser.

I built up my 660 luminova think i did it right no manuel still cant see anything


This is a reflector style telescope with a mirror on the bottom. The focuser end is the UP end. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x or 3x barlow if you have one-- practice focusing on a distant object during the day time and NEVER point the scope at the sun.

I have a tasco 114mm by 900 luminova when i look through it all i see is around white circle what am i doing wrong


You are NOT focused properly. Take the scope out side during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser.

By the way in the picture shown on your post-- FIXYA has the scope mounted BACKWARDS and pointed at the ground. The focuser and small finder scope are on the UP end of the telescope.

Can't seem to see anything through the telescope


The mirror is the BOTTOM of the scope -- the focuser is on the UP end of the tube. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Practice turning the focus knob during the day time until you get a sharp image in the eyepiece.

Luminova 40114675 (675 x 114mm) Telescope: cant veiw anything out of it...


This is a REFLECTOR style telescope. The end with the focuser and the eyepiece is pointed UP. the mirror is on the bottom of the scope.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it.

The PICTURE shown above really makes me laugh. The scope is mounted BACKWARDS in the picture above, and is pointed toward the GROUND not the sky. Even FIXYA puts them on the mount backwards!

Look at this picture. See how the eyepiece and focuser are on the end pointed toward the sky. The MIRROR is the BOTTOM of the telescope:

I believe your scope is mounted backwards just like the picture FIXYA applied to your question!

PLEASE HELP


Here is a picture of the scope setup--

http://www.shopwiki.com/detail/d=Tasco_Luminova_660_x_60mm_Refractor_Telescope/

Very simple to operate--

Take lens Cap off

Put diagonal into telescope (an "L" shaped component with a small mirror inside)

Put eyepiece into diagonal- use the lowest magnification which is the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it.

Go outside during the daytime and practice focusing the telescope on a distant object at least 100 yards away...... tuen the focus knob very slowly.
