Question about Tasco 350x50mm Refractor Novice Telescopes
I purchased a Tasco telescope recently,putting it together was the easy part,i just wanted to know what lens i put in the scope to view the moon?The telescope came with a HM25mm,H12.5,SR4mm eyepieces,and i already know the Erecting eyepiece is for horizontal viewing,and the Barlow lens i think is for making the eyepieces more "powerfull".I just don't know what to use and how to put them in the scope.Maybe if you had a diagram or something it would really help.Thank You
The moon is big so use the 25mm. The Barlow will have a multiplication marking on it 2x 3x etc. A 2x Barlow lens will effectively double the power of the eyepiece you are using. Do not use the erecting eyepiece for anything other than land viewing. Erecting eyepieces generally reduce the amount of light reaching your eye and thus reduce brightness of the faint objects in the sky.
So basically just place the 25 mm lens in the focuser and point the scope at the moon and you will be amazed at what you can see and how bright it is.
