Here are some plans for building your own telescope. Just remember it is actually cheaper to buy a commercial telescope than to actually make it-- but this one is cheap.

Are some parts of the show improvised?


Yes, but not as often as some believe. Many scenes seem improvised mainly due to the way they were written and/or acted, but it was confirmed by Jenna Fischer on her blog that a very large portion of the show is scripted. One of the more famous improvised scenes is the Michael/Oscar kiss in the episode "Gay Witch Hunt" (which Steve Carell decided to do while cameras were rolling), and Dwight's question to Toby about the female anatomy in "Sexual Harrassment" (Rainn Wilson added a few more questions for Dwight to ask).

Need to know how to use the telescope after it is setup


Lorraine, join a club or get instruction book. An optical telescope which uses lenses is known as a refracting telescope or a refractor; one which uses a mirror is known as a reflecting telescope or a reflector. Besides optical telescopes, astronomers also use telescopes that focus radio waves, X-rays, and other forms of electromagnetic radiation.

I need a Bushnell Deep Space Series 420x60mmRefractor Telescope


DO NOT buy a Bushnell telescope! These are considered "toy" telescopes and are usually not suitable for Astronomy.

Instead buy a Dobsonian telescope like this one:

You cannot buy a useable telescope for less than about $200.

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.

Do not buy either telescope-- both are junk.

Instead buy one of these --

To the second guy posting the same problem-- you went and bought a cheap department store telescope--- what do you expect for $89-- ???

If you would have spent just a little bit more you could have had one of these--

Don't buy telescopes at Wal Mart or Sears!
