First that small telescope will never reach 400 power. The maximum magnification for any telescope is 50 times the aperture. Yours is probably about 2 inches, so 100 power is the max. They lied to you on the box. This is a typical small department store telescope sold by Toys R Us. We receive more complaints about this scope than just about any other telescope.

Read my Frequently Asked Questions TIP on my profile page.

If the focuser is broken, or the tube is broken you can try taking it back to Toys R Us, however, the repair would cost more than you paid for the scope, and parts are NOT available.

How do i focus the telescope


  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

Need cd for the astrolon telescope 402 power


I have the 402 power astrolon telescope (item 36755), with the wooden tripod. I have the manual and the original CD (there's probably a more updated version--I've had this for approx. 10 yrs.). As for the manual, if you haven't found one, I'll make a copy and send it to you (it's only 6 small pages). Also, their customer service number is
800-637-3455. Hope this helps.

Cannot get it focused


Use only the eyepiece with the largest numbver written on it-- do NOT use the 2x barlow it applys TOO MUCH magnification. Try again.

Think I'm missing a lens,can't see anything through it


Do you have an eyepiece? The eyepiece goes into the focuser.

We can;'t focus our telescope on anything


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

Put the diagonal (the 90' attachment) into the telescope and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Now go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

How do I focus on the moon. Model 1400150. I have been gifted this telescope. Tried to focus on moon. Dont know how. Took big cap off end. Looked throughscope on top of large cylinder. Tried to focus...


first, use the lowest power eyepiece, that's the one with the high number on it with 'mm' after the number.

for a refractor telescope (uses lenses), you might have to add a diagnal lens (either 45 degree or 90 degree, whichever one you have) to focus on an object.
attach it in this order:

low power eyepiece-->diagnal lens-->main telescope

for a reflector telescope (uses mirrors, a telescope with a big tube with a mirror at the bottom and a focusing knob on one side of the tube). the open part of the tube points to your target.

hope this helps :D

I cant figure out how to get the lenses to work?


If this is a small TASCO or BUSNELL telescope you bought a toy telescope--

Try this-- put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. This is your lowest magnification. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object-- try to see the moon at night once you learn how to focus.
