Wish you DID NOT buy this scope. Tasco, Bushnell, are both what we call "department store" telescopes.

Also the mount is called an equatorial mount. It must be polar aligned in order to use it. Read my TIP on polar alignment on my profile page.

The eyepieces can be cleaned with any eyeglass cleaning kit or photographic lens cleaning kit from a camera store. Be gentle when cleaning.

Next time buy them a scope like this one called a Dobsonian mounted reflector.

Contact Tasco at 1-800-423-3537 or http://www.tasco.com/support/customer_service.shtml or visit their website for instructions on repair at http://www.tasco.com/support/repair_warranty.shtml

I picked-up a Tasco Galaxsee 45-114375 at a garage sale, but there was no owner's manual. From which website can I download one?


All of Tasco's manuals are on this web site:

http://www.tasco.com/pages/instruction-manuals/

Remember that the manual only has assembly instructions. It will not tell you how to use the telescope to find those dim- small objects in the nightsky. Find a local Astronomy club and the members will help you.

I need the manual . I've never had a telescope before and now own a used Tasco Galaxsee 45114375. Need to know all about the telescope.


All of Tasco's manuals are on this web site:

http://www.tasco.com/pages/instruction-manuals/

If this is on an EQ mount you will also need to learn how to polar align the mount. There are several videos on our Astronomy club's video web site that will help you. Look around for the Equatorial mount videos here:

I am thinking of buying a Tasco Telescope Model 46-11437 second-hand and am wondering what the original purchase price may have been and what problems I should know about before I buy.


Originally around $150 new. This is a wide field, low power scope. Good for the moon fair to good for planets and fair for deep sky objects (Orion Nebula and some clusters will be fine) Expect to see Jupiter and its moons but unless it is a perfect night, no detail of Jupiter's clouds. Should see the rings of Saturn also.
The scope comes with Tasco eyepieces, which are close to junk but at least they are in 1.25 in format. You can buy better eyepieces and they will work with any upgraded scopes, if you catch the astronomy bug.
The optics are fair, Tasco is not known for good optics. I would study up on collimating your scope, I guarantee you will have to adjust it.

Cannot see out of scope Aloha planets should be ok to see


Find a local astronomy club and have them help you with the scope.

Then NEVER BUY another Tasco scope! They are imported junk-toy telescopes.

My little boy was just given one of these tasco galaxsee 46114375 telescopes, and we don't know squat about it. Can anyone get us started on how to use it, etc...?


If it is like the one in the picture on your question this is a small reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned on Polaris the North star in order to use it properly. That's why we NEVER recommend an equatorial mount as a first telescope or as a gift for a child.

You can read my TIP about equatorial mounts on my profile page to learn how to align the mount. However I would recommend that you RETURN the telescope if you can and buy him one just like this one.

http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=09804

It is small and light and can easily be carried outside. in two pieces the tube, and the base. Try to attend a star party by a local Astronomy club and the members will help you with either of these telescopes.

I have a tasco galaxsee 46-114375 and i do not


Here is the manual:

http://www.tasco.com/products/manuals/46060675_TML-722.pdf

Why don't you locate a local Astronomy club and have the members help you with your telescope. This is a REFLECTOR style telescope with a mirror in the bottom. The focuser end is point UP == take the lens cap off, put in the eyepiece with the largest number written on it and practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

Read my TIPS on my profile page, and read this:
