My son completely disassembeled all the parts and lenses of his microscope. how can i find out how to correctly put it all back together?

The image is of a telescope. This type of scope has only one optical part in the tube, a mirror on the end opposite the focuser end. The smaller tube just goes in to the focuser and it uses a small screw to hold it in place. If the lenses are truly taken apart then there may still be hope as most critical optics are glued together with crystal clear glue.Clean them and reassemble.

Never take an eyepiece apart -- first you will void tany warranty-- and second no one can tell you how the multi-elements go back together properly.

Buy a new eyepiece and throw that one away.

This scope is NOT worth repairing, as the repairs would be more expensive than just buying another telescope.

These can be found in good condition-- a small reflector on a EQ 1 mount for less than $50 on

I have a bushnell 18-1560 telescope the 2 lenses have come out and I'm not sure which one goes in first, can you help me out on this , thanks

Sorry-- no we cannot help you. NEVER remove the front lenses from a telescope. Only the outside surfaces would ever need to be cleaned.

You will need to experiment-- there are really only a limited amount of possible ways to assemble two lenses together. Try each different way -- and use cotton gloves so you do not get fingerprints on the lenses.

Dont see anything.

Take the telescope outside during the day time. 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 the scope on a distant object.

The little tube is the FINDER scope which you line up with the main tube and use to POINT the telescope.

You have a simple refractor. Read these: Instructions for a simple refractor

Have Tasco model 5VTE. Been dismantled and two (field?) lenses are in the barrel end. Which way round should they be refitted?

Usually the "flat" side points at each other or are assembled together.

NEVER remove the lenses from a telescope, without noting which way they were placed inside the tube.
