Question about Tasco Astronomical 302675 Telescope
You have a 60mm refractor telescope on an equatorial mount. First the mount must be polar aligned in order to useit. Second I believe these take .965 eyepieces. Most amateur scopes use 1.25 inch eyepieces,
The eyepieces are very cheaply made. Some may also have plastic lens instead of high quality glass, and they are not muti-coated lenses.
Why am I saying all this? because this scope will frustrate you. The tripod is shaky and the connection between the mount and the scope tube is never solid. The scope will not stay pointed and it will be difficult to move it around the sky accurately. Sky objects are very tiny. Less than the tip of you finger held at arms length!
We never recommend an EQ mount to a beginner, and never recommend a 60mm telescope. You could have bought a pair of 10x50mm binoculars and they would have been much better for astronomy.
The manual will NOT teach you how to polar align the scope or how to find objects in the sky.
Read my TIPS on my profile page Frequently Asked Questions, and also the one on aligning an equatorial mount on the star Polaris.
This is the only manual I have ever found-- someone took images of the manual and posted it on-line-
