This is a REFLECTOR style telescope. The end with the focuser and the eyepiece is pointed UP. the mirror is on the bottom of the scope.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it.

The PICTURE shown above really makes me laugh. The scope is mounted BACKWARDS in the picture above, and is pointed toward the GROUND not the sky. Even FIXYA puts them on the mount backwards!

Look at this picture. See how the eyepiece and focuser are on the end pointed toward the sky. The MIRROR is the BOTTOM of the telescope:

I believe your scope is mounted backwards just like the picture FIXYA applied to your question!

You can get a manual on this web site:

This is a reflector style telescope. with mirrors-- probably on an equatorial mount which needs to be polar aligned in order to be used. Read this:

I built up my 660 luminova think i did it right no manuel still cant see anything


This is a reflector style telescope with a mirror on the bottom. The focuser end is the UP end. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x or 3x barlow if you have one-- practice focusing on a distant object during the day time and NEVER point the scope at the sun.

A new telescope has a rubber piece on the end with screws cant see through is it supposed to be removed ?


That is the end with the MIRROR! Turn it around-- the focuser is on the UP end of the telescope and the PICTURE that Fixya uses (above) is ALSO mounted upside down! The scope above is pointed at the ground!

Many beginners mount the scope backwards.

CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IS ITS LENS SIZE,AND ALSO CAN I PURCHASE AN ERECTING EYEPIECE SO THAT I CAN USE THE TELESCOPE FOR TERRESTRIAL VEIWING


The eyepiece size (diameter) is the standard 1.25 in.
Erecting eyepiece adapters can be used with this scope.
maximum magnification is 250x therefore highest eyepiece would be 3.6mm
most useful magnification of any scope is 150x (900/150= 6mm eyepiece
Eyepieces provided with scope (Huygens type) have a narrow field of view and are relatively poor for astronomy but should be fine for terrestrial viewing

Tasco 40-114675 - new telescope. I am lost. my first telescope and the directions are useless. I don't know the first thing about them. how are the lenses supposed to go? do I use the barlow all the...


DO NOT USE the barlow at all your scope is too small to get that much magnification.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser and point it at a distant object during the day time. Practice focusing. The moon should be your first target at night.

How do i set up my tasco luminova telescope up my luminova


I always laugh when I see the picture shown on your question that FIXYA provides! Why? Because the scope is mounted backwards in the picture and is pointed TOWARD the ground!

All of Tasco manuals are on this web site. The MIRROR is the bottom of the telescope. The focuser is the UP end of the telescope tube!

Hi I have just got a Tasco telescope space station and i have it all set up but cant seem to be able to remove the lense at the end of the telescope. How would it come off?? Thanks


I assume this is the refractor style model-- the "L" shaped device on the end is a diagonal -- the eyepiece goes into the diagonal. Loosen the set-screws.
