Your small telescope will never get beyond about 100 power --- the maximum resolution is calculated as 50 times aperture under perfect conditions!

Use the eyepieces with the LARGEST numbers only and don't use the barlow.

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--

SOURCE: Our son took apart our Tasco 59T telescope and now

This is a simple alt ax refractor telescope. Most of them go together the same way.

Here is a similar manual for a Meade refractor. Use it to put your scope back together,

Need mamual for Nat. Geographic telescope model #NG750RTHS


That is difficult Diane, because National Geographic are not the makers, it is just badged with their name and they sell it. I have looked and a number of people are looking for the manual for it.

You could ask them direct though?

Without a porro-prism or a erect image diagonal, all telescopes show a reversed image. This is normal. There is no up/down in space. If you want to use the scope for terrestrial viewing, see first sentence. Do not use a erect image accessory for astronomy since it reduces the contrast.

Someone took it apart to clean it and i don't think they put the parts back in the right places. i need a blow apart of the scope to put it back together right. Can you help?


This is a small 60mm refractor telescope. The main lens probably screws on the from of the telescope.

You will also have a small finder scope that mounts on top of the main tube.

Several eyepieces

and a diagonal.

You may also have a 2x barlow.

Put the diagonal into the back of the telescope, then put the eyepiece into the diagonal. That's it.

Now practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. Read my tips on my profile page, and read this:

My son took his meade etx-70 apart can't remember which way objective lens is supposed to be facing down the tube when it came time to put it back together.


NEVER take a lens out of an eyepiece or telescope, only clean the outer surfaces.

Try putting the flat sides together and see if that works.

My 9t eye piece was rattling and mislined. I took it apart cleaned lenses and wondered is there a lense location or direction?


Never disassemble an eyepiece unless you know exactly how to put it back together. Only the outer glass lens ever needs cleaning.

Without knowing exactly what link of eyepiece you have (they are all different designs) it's impossible to tell you which way the internal lenses go.

Your best bet may be to simply purchase another eyepiece.

I took the eyepiece apart to clean it and can't remember which order to put things back together


Usually the order is like this:The lens that looks like () is to top one, closest to the eye. The other that may be (| or (( shaped, is inward, and if it has a flat or concave surface, that surface faces to telescope objective.
