Here's what you need to know about Mil Dots and rangefinding.

When you look through the scope you should see 5 mil dots on each axis, your scope may have broad lines taking place of the 5th mil dot if it is a "modified" mil dot scope. For measuring purposes, 1 mil is the distance from the center of one dot to the center of the one directly above or below it. 3/4 of a mil is the distance from the top of one dot to the bottom of the one above it, or the "space in between dots". 1/4 mil comprises a single dot, the space between the top of one dot and the bottom of that same dot.

A quick calculation is Size of Target (In Yards) x 1000 / Size of target in mils = Range in Yards

Miliradian or "Mil" is an angular unit of measure, so if you were shooting at 1000 yards and moved up 1 miliradian that would be one inch impact moved up.

Anyway lets say you have a 30" target and we need to find the range... using your scope you place the bottom of the target at the CENTER of a mil dot and count how many mils up, good estimation is key... I'll draw a little text diagram, an asterisk * will be the target top and bottom, and parentheses () will be a mill dot
( * )--------(  )-----*---(  )
Now lets assume the asterisk on the left is the bottom of your target and the one on the right is the top, I put Ten Hyphens in between each dot so if you count from the left you should get about 1.6 Mils. Its real easy to do it in your head, you already know two whole dots is one mil so you just have to estimate whats to the right (or top if you were looking down a scope).

So we know the target is 30" and we have a Mil Reading of 1.6
30/36= .833 so 30" is .833 Yards

So now we can use the equation .833 x 1000 / 1.6 = 520.6 Yards is the distance of the target

Now you can also use Mil dots to do hold over for when the target moves or for wind and elevation but that gets extremely complicated.

There are many books and websites to confirm what I've said here, but the best way is to go out to your range and talk to some long range shooters and show them your rifle/scope etc and get hands on help.

I own a Tasco PB-2, this scope is designated as having an illuminated red dot, and a little documentation packet that came with it states it is illuminated. Here's the problem, the damn thing is not...

It has been awhile since if seen one but I think there is a large adjustment knob on top. This has a screw slot that a dime or a penny will fit. Hold the knurled ring and remove the top, this is the battery compartment. If this is a new scope there will be a thin piece of plastic to keep the battery from going dead during shelf time. The adjustment ring is the brightness control.

I need a users manual for tasco galaxsee 46-060675

Do you need a users manual to ASSEMBLE the scope? Or are you looking for how to USE the scope.

This is a very small 60mm refractor on an equatorial mount. Not much bigger than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars. The binoculars would have been better for sky observing! The euitorial mount must be polar aligned with the star Polaris before it will work properly. We never recommend equitorial mounts to beginners for this reason.

Please read my TIPS in my profile page to learn how to polar align the scope, and what you can do to improve the scope.

If you need a manual for assembly you will not find one for Tasco BUT Meade has a similar scope. They all assemble in the same way. Here is the Meade Manual:
