Since all reflectors and German equatorial mounts work about the same anyone familiar with telescopes can show you how to use it. No manual needed. Just contact a local club for the help you need. There's a strong bias against Tasco since so much of their stuff is junk, or "toy" telescopes.

http://www.astronomyclubs.com/
http://www.skyandtelescope.com/community/organizations

and look at this web site under the header 4.5 inch REFLECTOR for a manual similar to your telescope. They all go together the same way.

maybe this one is similar to your scope. ?

I dont know how to use the eye piece to get a view that i need. the scope is put together the end caps are off but nothing is coming into view through the yee piece


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

If your scope is like the picture in your question, the focuser and eyepiece are on the UP end of the telescope. The mirror is the BOTTOM of the telescope, just like in the picture above.

My 9t eye piece was rattling and mislined. I took it apart cleaned lenses and wondered is there a lense location or direction?


Never disassemble an eyepiece unless you know exactly how to put it back together. Only the outer glass lens ever needs cleaning.

Without knowing exactly what link of eyepiece you have (they are all different designs) it's impossible to tell you which way the internal lenses go.

Your best bet may be to simply purchase another eyepiece.

Most of these small telescopes don't come with a manual-- however Meade maintains a web site full of manuals for their telescopes. Find one that is similar to your telescope and download it for free.

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--

Just found your posting kind of old but I hope this helps you--

Most of these small refractors assemble the same way-- so take a look at these Meade brand refractor manual and see if it helps you put it back together.

BROKEN MOUNT


WITHOUT KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT AND WHERE THE BREAK IS, HERE IS A POSSIBLE SOLUTION. EPOXY IS AN EXTREAMLY GOOD BONDING AGENT FOR PUTTING TWO PIECES BACK TOGTHER, SECURELY. AN EPOXY PRODUCT CALLED "J-B WELD" WHICH COMES IN TWO [2] SMALL TUBES BOUGHT LOCALLY AT HARDWARE STORES CAN BE USED TO BOND THE TWO BROKEN PIECES BACK TOGETHER...FOREVER. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS FOR MIXING, APPLY TO PIECES, CLAMP TOGETHER PIECES AND LET LET OVERNIGHT. WIPE OFF/CLEAN EXCESS EPOXY BEFORE IT SETS UP. THE NEXT DAY, DRESS UP THE AREA AS NEEDED FOR LOOKS AND OR FUNCTION. HOPE THIS HELPS.
