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,

Took my tasco 20-60×60mm zoom spotting scope apart to clean the lenses and forgot how to put it back together


You can find manuals for Tasco products at the links. Because they are relatively in-expensive, I could not find an exploded view of parts replacement for it. I also looked on youtube for you, but no one has assembled one there.

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.

Need an operating guide and manual for tasco 302058 telescope


You won't find a manual--- from Tasco--- however Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals-- find one similar to yours. They all go together about the same.

I need to find a manual to assemble this telescope.


Meade has a web site with all of the manuals for their telescopes --- look around and find one that is similar in style to your telescope and use it to assemble your scope and learn about the different parts.

Rear mirror


I may be telling you something you already know, but just in case.

If your telescope is a newtonian/dobsonian (i.e., long, large tube) then the mirror in the bottom can be adjusted to collimate or align properly.

On the other hand, if the top of the telescope has glass over it (refractor telescope) then putting it back into place will be more labor intensive and I wouldnt even try it. Try going to the manufacturers website and asking them. You might post the same question on a telescope forum called cloudynights.com. If you live in a large city, try searching for local astronomy clubs as every astronomy club has some guy there who takes these things apart for no reason just to put them back together.

Tasco Model 59T additional lenses


Do you mean eyepieces? If so, they are either .965", 1.25" or 2". I'm betting yours are .965" or 1.25" which is a standard and you should be able to fit anyones same-sized eyepieces in the focus housing. Measure the diameter and you will know.

If you mean lenses, then the question is confusing, as you increase or decrease power by switching out eyepieces, not objective lenses.

Look on eBay for eyepieces and you'll find plenty.
