1. Your finder is not properly aligned with the telescope. Therefore you are not looking at what the finder is looking at.
2. Max. power of the scope is 250x (if everything was perfect and it ain't) 375x like they say on the box is a LIE!
Tasco eyepieces are junk and you may be suffering from eyepiece "blackout" magnification = 500(focal length)/ eyepiece focal length

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.

Hi ive got a galaxsee tasco telescope but im having trouble seeing anything at night, i've took all the caps off lined up on a star but its just pitch black can you help thanks.


1. During the day, point the scope towards an object and align the finder scope to the telescope.
2. First object at night should be the moon. it will verify your finderscope alignment and you should have a clear view of the moon.
3. Use your lowest power eyepiece (largest number in mm) and point the finderscope to a star. The star should be in the center of the eyepiece.. If not, adjust the finder until it and the scope are centered.
4. You can use your higher power lens on the star nd it should still be in the FOV (field of view)
5. Scope may need to be aligned (collimated). Instructions on this should be included with the scope

Telescopes have VERY small fields of view, and YOUR telescope will never reach 375 power.

Why? The maximum magnification of any telescope is 50 times aperture. So a 3 inch scope is 150 power.

Do not try to use max power-- I own several scopes in the 10 inch range, many times larger than your scope. Normally we use from 80-150 power to show objects in the night sky. Remember the scope has a field of view smaller than the tip of your finger held at arm's length!

Many places on-line. Here are two:

Measure the hole in the focuser- eyepieces come in 3 sizes, .975, 1.25, and 2 inch.

I have no manual for my galaxsee 45-060525


This is a simple small refractor telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2 x barlow if you have one.

Practice focusing on a distant object during the daytime- you are not focusing the scope properly.

Here is the manual:

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.

I also bought one & have no idea how the lenses should work...


Verify that the mirrors are aligned; look through the eyepiece holder (without an eyepiece) and you should see the main mirror with your eye looking back from the center. Ensure that there are no filters on the eyepiece, and use the lowest power one to begin (longest focal length).

Nothing------ stars are always JUST STARS no matter what scope you are using. They are too far away to see a disk. Point this scope at Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mars-- or other star clusters and the moon.

Remember stars are always just points of light-------- using Google look up the "Messier Objects"--- there are 110 of them in the night sky at different times of the year.
