Re: cant see out of 49114500 telescope

Here is a beginner's instruction on different types of telescopes--

Yes I know the box said 650 power but that was a BIG BIG lie-- the smaller the number on the eyepiece the more magnification. Do NOT use the 2x barlow which doubles the normal eyepiece power in these small telescopes--- just way to much magnification. This is NOT necessary to view the sky at night. I almost NEVER go over 100 power in my 8 inch telescope-- once in a while maybe 175 power. Sp use the eyepiece with the largest number on it--- to practice focusing during the daytime.

Try to locate a local Astronomy club and attend one of their star parties and ask questions. You can bring the telescope with you and they will help you with it.

Re: cant see out of 49114500 telescope

You're on the right track since you can see something with the large eyepiece. The smaller ones will work the same basic way, but only for objects that are farther away. When you use a smaller eyepiece, the magnification goes up, and usually, the higher power eyepieces may not work for close objects.

Try looking thru the middle size eyepiece at a very distant big object, that is much further away, like at least 1/4 or 1/2 mile, in daytime. Try adjusting thru the entire adjustment range slowly, and at some point, you should see the image appear, and sharpen up.

The middle eyepiece will be typically be harder to focus easily, since the focus range is smaller. Likewise, the smallest eyepiece will be even touchier, but its the same process. Just turn the adjustment knob slowly.

It also helps sometimes to hang a weight like a book from the center of the telescope or tripod to help stabilize everything.

All of this will be easier in the daytime first to get practise, and to learn how careful you have to be. Good Luck.

I accidentally took apart the barlow lens 3x and the 2 lenses came out i just need to now witch way to put them back in is it )) or (( towards the eye piece

Sorry-- there are several different ways it could go depending on the barlow. NEVER disassemble an eyepiece or a barlow. Only the outside surfaces need to be cleaned from time to time.

I need a manual for tasco 49114500

You will not find a manual for those small reflector telescopes. However they all assemble and are used in the same way.

Meade maintains a web site with all of there assembly and use manuals. Look under the 4.5 inch REFLECTOR header for one similar to your telescope.

By the way this is a REFLECTOR with a mirror in the bottom. of the telescope. The FOCUSER end is pointed UP. Read my tips on my profile page.

Here is the link to the Meade manuals--

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope and go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object-- the moon should be your first night time object.

Eye piece shows upside down

Its meant to be upside down its a newtonian reflector. If you want it to be right way up you will have to buy a diagonal eye piece or glue your shoes to the roof!
