Here is the manual:

This is a very small refractor on an equatorial mount. The mount must be POLAR aligned before you can use it. We NEVER recommend this to a beginner.

However you bought one anyway! SO--- go to my profile page and read my TIPS on polar aligning an EQ mount. Several of the other TIPS will help you.

SOURCE: Need an operating guide and manual for tasco 302058 telescope

You won't find a manual--- from Tasco--- however Meade maintains a web site with all of their manuals-- find one similar to yours. They all go together about the same.

What eyepieces sizes have you used?
Try using the largest eyepieces you have (20mm, 25mm or higher) for a wide field of view. If your eyepiece is to small (maybe 15mm or below) you will have too much magnification and the moon will be a blur.

Full instructions! Scope is basically the same as here:

Have fun and start out with your lowest power (biggest number) eyepiece and without the barlow. The moon is a nice place to start (and keep coming back to...;-)

Yes you can buy eyepieces at several retailers. Measure the hole. Eyepieces come in 3 different sizes: .965, 1.25 and 2 inch sizes.

Here are several retailers:

How do i set up my tasco luminova telescope up my luminova


I always laugh when I see the picture shown on your question that FIXYA provides! Why? Because the scope is mounted backwards in the picture and is pointed TOWARD the ground!

All of Tasco manuals are on this web site. The MIRROR is the bottom of the telescope. The focuser is the UP end of the telescope tube!

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.
