Steve, your Tasco is fairly common, often copied by a lot of taiwan companies. Walmart carries that same scope right now, you could go there and peak at the owners manual or get them to make you a copy. I know the double lines represent the 18 inches of a deer's chest, and the other dials about the bullet ballistics, I don't know about, would have to see it. I thought it was just by the size of the 18 inch mark gave you the range and that was it. The scope did the rest. But I don't know. Anyway, check it out. Hope this helps.

No problem. just new to using scopes!


More than good enough. Game the size of deer is routinely taken with open sights on a rifle. The scope you have is more than adequate.

Can not focus telescope lens pieces do not fit


What Tasco do you own is it a refractor or reflector? Does it have a lens in front -- then it's a refractor; or mirrors, then it's a reflector.

On a refractor the eyepieces go in the back of the tube, sometimes you also have a diagonal which goes into the scope first and then the eyepiece goes into the diagonal. The diagonal is simply an L shaped device with a mirror inside that makes it easier to look through the scope when it is pointed UP at an angle.

On a reflector the focuser is on the FRONT side of the tube, and the eyepiece goes into the focuser.

Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser or into the diagonal. This is your LOWEST magnification.

Practice focusing --- until you get used to how it is done. Turn the focuser knob to the left slowly-- if nothing comes to focus then try turning it to the right. It may take several full turns to come to focus.

At night the moon should be your first target.

Read my TIPS on my profile page.

ABOUT NOT FITTING: eyepieces come in 3 sizes, .975, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes. Measure the hole and then measure the eyepiece-- it may be that you have the wrong size eyepieces for that scope. The correct size can be purchased on line from many retailers. Here is one telescope retailer that sells eyepieces and other accessories:

Point of impact changes with every shot


Mount the rifle with the scope and make a mark on the backstop right where the crosshairs are pointed at

Shoot several times, several shots will surley jolt the scope some.

If the crosshairs have moved much past your mark then this would indicate the scope is the issue.

If the crosshairs are still pretty well centered to the mark, its not the scope.

If at the same time your grouping looks terrible, and your scope still is on the mark, and the gun is WELL mounted, then the issue is with the accuracy of the rifle.
Make sure the rifle is mounted good for this to ba accurate .
Hope this helps

What size batteries for my tasco propoint, built 1985


Tasco's Contact Information is here

Thier website didnt have an information on scopes that old that i could see. however if you contact them im sure they would know what size the battery needs to be, and would be happy to refer you to a place to purchase them (if not a product they themselves supply)

NOTE Tasco is a European company residing in Spain Madrid. You may be asked to send it overseas to be identified? (worst case scenario) if this is the case be sure to purchase a number of batteries for the device to make it somewhat cost effective

:) (I couldnt find the battery type as i dont know exactly what scope you have :(

Trying to identify older tasco telescope and put it together


There are only two types of telescopes --- REFRACTORS, and REFLECTORS-

The refractor has a lens on the front of the tube and you insert different eyepieces in the back-- the larger the number written on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification-- (DO NOT USE THE 2x or 3x barlow which you may have!-- this creates too much power for this small telescope!-- put it away and never use it!)

A reflector has a main mirror on the bottom of the tube, and a small secondary mirror under the eyepiece hole (focuser end) - front end-- put the lowest power eyepiece into the focuser.

Now with either type telescope go out side during the day and practice focusing on a distant object-- turn the knob SLOWLY. At night the moon should be the first target you try.

If you received what appears to be a smaller telescope -- that is the finder scope-- attach it to the top of the tube on the main telescope. Again during the day line up the small finder scope with the main scope-- look at a distant telephone pole (the very top-- and center this in the main telescope. Without moving the main scope use the finder scopes "screws" to adjust the cross hairs so they are pointing exactly where the main scope is pointed. Now you can use the small finder scope to point the telescope in the exact direction--

The moon should be your first night time target.

Good luck--

Tasco propoint PDP2 scope


Are you looking set the eye relief or the focus ring?

For eye relief you need to loosen the scope in the rings, mount the rifle to your shoulder with your standard hold and cheek weld. At this point, slide the scope back and forth in the rings until you obtain a full field of view. Tighten one of the rings slightly, dismount and remount the rifle several times to ensure correct adjustment. Level scope and tighten rings a final time.

For focus adjustment (remember that you are using the eyepiece to focus on the cross hair, not your target!) loosen the lock ring and turn the eyepiece until the cross hair is focused. It is best if you check it several times by closing and opening your eye several times. The crosshair should be instantly in focus. If your eye must adjust, then you need to refocus until the focus is instant.

The two dials on the scope are for adjusting the bullet point of impact. They will typically move POI 1/4 inch at 100 yards.
