Question about Zhumell Tasco 900x114mm Luminova Reflector Telescope $50 OFF with FREE UPS

1 Answer

I bought an old Tasco 11TR reflector telescope at a used store, but it does NOT have any eyepieces nor manual. What should I buy to at least make this 'scope useable for moonwatching?

Eyepieces are available from many on-line retailers -- measure the hole in the focuser. Eyepieces come in 3 sizes, .965, 1.25, and 2 inch.

The .965 is very hard to find. Here are two retailers

Where can I find a manual for a Tasco Reflector telescope, Model 11TR


The Tasco web site does not list that model-- however it is a small reflector style telescope similar to this model--

Use the above manual to help you assemble the scope.

Need an erecting diagonal for tasco 11TR


Why? are you going to use the scope for terrestrial viewing -- bird watching etc etc

You do not need it for astronomical viewing--- no up or down in outer space.

Here are some:

These are usually sold in 1.25 inch size-- measure the hole in the focuser.

I bought a used Tasco Galaxsee 45-060525 for my next door neighbor's young boys who are home-schooled to study astronomy. The lens are all foggy/cloudy. Any suggestions?


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.

How much does a tasco 302675 telescope cost/


It does not matter what it costs! Do not buy a Tasco telescope. Very poorly made, some even have plastic eyepieces and plastic lenses!

Check out this web site and others for a better, higher quality telescope.

http://www.telescope.com/control/main/

I would also suggest that you look at a Dobsonian mounted reflector like this one:

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.

Wont focus correctly


TOO MUCH magnification. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow. Try Jupiter with lower magnification.

Tasco 40-076420 for terrestrial viewing


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images-- no up or down in space!

You can buy one of these to ERECT the image-- make sure you get the correct barrel size usually 1.25 inch although some of those TASCO scopes are .965 inch. Measure the hole--

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--
