I just received as a gift, set it up and nowI am unable to see anything. the instruction manual is vague, only tells me how to set it up but not much else. thanks

The manuals DO NOT tell you how to find objects in the night sky, they are only assembly instructions. Wish you had not bought that telescope, this type would have been better for a beginner.

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

Locate an Astronomy club nearby and the members will help you learn the sky. All sky objects are smaller than the tip of your finger held at arm's length. The scope must be pointed directly at them to see anything.

Read my tips on my profile page.

I have a TASCO telescope model 40-114675 incompletely assembled

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. I believe you have a REFLECTOR style telescope with a 3.5 inch mirror in the bottom.

Point the focuser end toward a distant object and practice focusing during the day time.

Later you can try the higher power eyepieces with the SMALLER numbers written on them. I belive one of the long pieces is a finder scope that mounts on top. AND the other is a 2x barlow which multiplies the eyepiece power by a factor of 2 times. Don't use the barlow. You will not need it.

The image will be upside down, which is normal for an astronomical telescope.

My Telescope is described as a Meade Model DS60. This was a gift to my grandson and in the middle of a messy divorce, his dad screwed up assembly, probably lost parts. In any case, I no longer have...

Meade maintains a web page with all their manuals. Find your scope and download a copy.

I believe I see your scope on the upper right hand side of the web page.
