Need to know how to use the telescope after it is setup


Lorraine, join a club or get instruction book. An optical telescope which uses lenses is known as a refracting telescope or a refractor; one which uses a mirror is known as a reflecting telescope or a reflector. Besides optical telescopes, astronomers also use telescopes that focus radio waves, X-rays, and other forms of electromagnetic radiation.

Dear sir / mam tasco telescope works in day or


My advice is NOT to buy a Tasco telescope. These are called "department store" telescopes and their quality is not very good.

Instead buy from a regular on-line telescope shop. Here are two:

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:

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

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.

Do not buy either telescope-- both are junk.

Instead buy one of these --

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--

To the second guy posting the same problem-- you went and bought a cheap department store telescope--- what do you expect for $89-- ???

If you would have spent just a little bit more you could have had one of these--

Don't buy telescopes at Wal Mart or Sears!
