This is a reflector style telescope. It may also be on an equatorial mount. If it is on an EQ mount the mount must be polar aligned first in order to properly use the telescope. That's why we never recommend an EQ mount to a beginner.

However you can read my tips on EQ mounts on my profile page. AND-- read these:

    If you want a COMPLETE Astronomy course for your answer -- then join a local Astronomy club.

    Your scope must be polar aligned before it will work properly. We never recommend an EQ mount to a beginner.

Dear sir / mam tasco telescope works in day or


My advice is NOT to buy a Tasco telescope. These are called "department store" telescopes and their quality is not very good.

Instead buy from a regular on-line telescope shop. Here are two:

I want to view construction diagram or a diagram that can explain Reflex mirrir lens for digital slr camera.


Same principle as a reflex telescope- might Wikipedia Schmidt-cassegrain OR reflex telescope for more info. Long glass lenses need a lot of correction for fact that different wavelengths refract at different angles, while those same beams of light bend the same when reflected.

You can build a Dobsonian style telescope -- look here-

Building a refractor would be lots more expensive! for the optics-- however you can buy this small refractor being sold now for the International Year of Astronomy 2009 -- and see how they are constructed--
