Nothing------ stars are always JUST STARS no matter what scope you are using. They are too far away to see a disk. Point this scope at Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mars-- or other star clusters and the moon.

Remember stars are always just points of light-------- using Google look up the "Messier Objects"--- there are 110 of them in the night sky at different times of the year.

Does it make a difference to your viewing if you have a bigger length telescope or a smaller one

Focal length not physical length would better answer your question. Shorter focal length scopes have a lower power but wider view per size of eyepiece.
Tasco telescopes are basically junk telescopes. Any telescope from Celestron, Meade, Orion, Explore Scientific or Televue (to name the more popular) will give you a superior view compared to the Tasco.
A 60mm scope has the maximum magnification of 225x (under perfect sky conditions. I suggest a small, short tube reflector in the 4 inch range. They are lightweight, have much more light gathering power (more important than magnification) and easy to set up.

Cannot see anything through the telescope

Put the diagonal into the focuser, then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. Take it outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

DO NOT use the 2x barlow-- that gives too much magnification for that small aperture telescope.

I have a tasco galaxsee 14-114375. when i look through the high powered eye peice i can never find the object. i can see colours if i look at buildings and such, but if i try to see a star its just black....

1. Your finder is not properly aligned with the telescope. Therefore you are not looking at what the finder is looking at.
2. Max. power of the scope is 250x (if everything was perfect and it ain't) 375x like they say on the box is a LIE!
Tasco eyepieces are junk and you may be suffering from eyepiece "blackout" magnification = 500(focal length)/ eyepiece focal length

Telescopes have VERY small fields of view, and YOUR telescope will never reach 375 power.

Why? The maximum magnification of any telescope is 50 times aperture. So a 3 inch scope is 150 power.

Do not try to use max power-- I own several scopes in the 10 inch range, many times larger than your scope. Normally we use from 80-150 power to show objects in the night sky. Remember the scope has a field of view smaller than the tip of your finger held at arm's length!

Can u please tell me how much the TASCO GALAXSEE

This is a very small refractor on a shaky equatorial mount. Do NOT buy this telescope. It's what we call a "department" store scope. You can find 50 of them for sale used on Craigslist, where they are sold after the owner finds out they are a toy telescope.

PLUS the EQ mount must be polar aligned in order to work.

Look at a Dobsonian telescope like this one-

Missing parts to galaxsee tasco

eye pieces are interchangeable and you will want a few of them for different magnifications.
The previous owner probably got a new scope and kept them for that.
Here's where I go for lens' in Toronto Canada.

The rule of thumb is cheaper eyepieces are ok for the low magnification 35mm-20mm but as you get to higher magnification a better eyepiece will make more of a difference. How expensive is up to you and how serious you are into this. I think my better lens was a used tele-vue for $80

Missing Manual

You won't find a manual for this small telescope-- put the lowest magnification eyepiece (the one with the largest number written on it)-- into the telescope. Take it outside during the daytime and practice focusing it on a distant object -- by turning the focusing knobs slowly in and out.

Tasco galaxsee 46114675 telescope

The telescope is intended for astronomical viewing, where orientation is not that important. When looking at ground objects, it will be inverted and reversed (that is why binoculars have 2 sets of prisms). To use on land objects, you would need to add a 'terrestial viewing adapter', although those are generally intended for refractors - the newtonian has a diagonal that 'corrects' the image in 1 direction.

My telescope

Try the largest eyepiece you have (20mm, 25mm) for a wide field of view. Of you try to view the moon with too much power (smaller mm eyepieces) it will always come out blurry - too close for such magnification.

What eyepieces sizes have you used?
Try using the largest eyepieces you have (20mm, 25mm or higher) for a wide field of view. If your eyepiece is to small (maybe 15mm or below) you will have too much magnification and the moon will be a blur.
