I was given a Tasco 675 power reflector telescope model #40-114675, but didn't get an instruction book or dvd. I was able to find a star in the finder scope but couldn't see it through the eyepiece. it looks like all the parts are there and lined up any suggestions? thanks peter accardi

You must first ALIGN the finderscope with the main tube. Locate a bright object with the main telescope. Get it in the eyepiece- then without moving the telescope, align the finder scope on the same object.

Now you can use the finder like a gun site to center targets on the crosshairs. By the way the Fixya picture in your question always makes me laugh- the telescope in the picture is mounted BACKWARDS and pointed toward the ground!

I need an instruction manual


You will not find a manual for this small telescope. The manual only shows how to assemble the scope. It DOES NOT tell you how to use the telescope to find objects in the sky.

Buy this book from amazon.com or a bookstore:
"Turn Left at Orion"

Also locate a local astronomy club and attend their star parties and meetings.

Meade brand maintains a list of manuals for their telescopes. Look under the REFRACTOR or 4.5 inch REFLECTOR heading for one similar to your scope. They all assemble in the same way.

I WISH TO SET UP A TASCO 40-114675 TELESCOPE CAN YOU SUPPLY INSRUCTION MANUAL


You will not find a manual for that small REFLECTOR style telescope. However the picture above-- that you show in your question shows the telescope mounted BACKWARDS actually pointed toward the ground!

Apparently FIXYA also does not know how to set up a reflector style telescope. The eyepiece and focuser end is on the UP end of the telescope with the mirror on the bottom end of the telescope.

Here is a manual for a MEADE brand telescope probably very similar to your telescope.

Can you help me find a manual for a 40-114675 Tasco telescope? The D=114mm, and theF=900mm.


Here is the manual:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/11827347/Tasco-Telescope-Manual

This is a small reflector telescope. If it is on an EQ mount, the mount must be roughly polar aligned in order to use the telescope. Read my EQ TIP on my profile page.

Eye piece shows upside down


Its meant to be upside down its a newtonian reflector. If you want it to be right way up you will have to buy a diagonal eye piece or glue your shoes to the roof!
