What is the lens configuration for a tasco telescope 25 30mm?

From the picture it looks like you are holding a small finder scope which usually mounts onto a larger telescope. Usually these are all one unit and do not have replacement eyepieces. If someone took the lens out throw it away as these can be bought for less than $20 brand new. It cannot be fixed at reasonable cost.

I need to know about my telescope optrex information . the name on my telescope is exactly\; telescope OPTREX OT 525 astronomical telescope acromatic coated lens F=700 D=60 . but when I look

Optrex did exist but was bought by Koyocera and has disappeared. Optex is an unrelated supplier of security sensors.

From the information you give, you could buy a right angle prism, erecting type, which allows daytime use as well, like this

and a couple of eyepieces suited to the scope

I recently bought this telescope from a friend. The lens is dirty and the motor has gone bad, is the telescope junk?

Yes, first--- NEVER buy a TASCO or BUSHNELL telescope. Most of them are not suitable for Astronomy.

The cost of fixing this scope will exceed its value and is not economical to do.

Instead buy a Dobsonian mounted reflector like this one.

I bought a basic Meade DS 2114 GOTO astronomical telescope for my father who is only just getting into telescopes and astronomy. As both of us are just beginners and mainly use the telescope leisurely, we...

NO it is NOT missing a lens-- all astronomical telescopes show upside down images.

You can buy an "erecting prism" diagonal for terrestrial viewing, but you do not need it to view the night sky.

Here is an example of the erecting prism:

Our Tasco telescope has a broken lens. Is it

Not worth fixing these small telescopes. There are hundreds for sale on

DO NOT BUY another toy "department store" telescope. Read my TIPs on my profile page. and look at this web site for a Dobsonian telescope.

Tasco telescope[46-114500]cannot see anything through lens.bought

THE protective cover is the FRONT of the telescope!!!

The focuser is on the front like the picture above. TURN the scope around -- you have it pointing at the ground right now!

Lost lens to bushnell 18-1561

I have a similar problem with my Bushnell 18-1650!

As you can see below, the plastic thing that holds the lens snapped off from the telescope's diagonal, and is now lost along with the eyepieces. This is a childhood scope I'm trying to rescue!

Should I:
1) glue a new eyepiece straight onto the diagonal
2) buy a new diagonal AND eyepiece
Or do I need to just buy a new telescope?

Thanks in advance.

Is inverted image normal

Most astronomical telescope show upside down images-- no problem as up or down do not exist in space!

You can buy an "erecting" diagonal for terrestrial use.

No lens

I am assuming by "lens" you mean eyepieces.

You don't need to get Vivitar brand eyepieces to get additional ones for your telescope. I'm not sure of the specifications for this particular telescope but in general they come in two barrel sizes for the eyepieces. The diameter of your eyepiece is probably 0.965" but could come in the more standard 1.25". You can measure the diameter and determine this quickly.

Once you know the diameter to shop for you can look for the focal length of the eyepiece you wish to purchase. They are rated such as 4mm, 10mm, 25mm, etc. The smaller numbers give you higher magnification. You can calculate the magnification by dividing the telescopes focal length by the eyepiece focal length. For example, let's say your telescope is has a focal length of 360mm and you have an eyepiece rated 10mm. Divide 360 by 10 and that gives you a magnification power of 36.

You can find eyepieces at many telescope dealers on the internet. Your selection will be far less if you use 0.965" eyepieces. You can purchase 0.965" to 1.25" adapters so that you can use the larger eyepieces with your telescope. However, on some telescopes the adapters will cause the new eyepiece to not come into focus.

You'll also find that eyepiece prices go all over the place. A good general purpose eyepiece is a type called the Plossl. The better eyepieces have more coatings too that allow more light to get through to your eye. You'll find these listed with terms like "fully multi-coated".

I hope this helps.

Good luck and clear skies!
