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.

What was the year of manufactur


Tasco was originally founded and owned by George Rosenfield in 1954. In March 1996 Rosenfield sold the business. At that time, Tasco employed 160 people in its Florida headquarters, and maintained a location in the state of Washington, which employed 40[1]. In June 1998, Tasco Holdings, Inc. purchased Celestron, another telescope manufacturer which focused on performance optical equipment and the more serious observer. Celestron was second only to Meade Instruments Corporation among marketing and sales of telescopes[3].
Early 2001, Tasco began searching for a buyer as profits sank. Meade Corporation begins negotiations for a merger, but the Federal Trade Commission blocked the attempt.
By June 2002, Wind Point Partners, parent company of Bushnell Performance Optics (BPO) purchases the Tasco trade name and all intellectual property of Tasco Worldwide Inc. from Tasco Holdings, Inc.
In July 2007, Wind Point Partners sold Bushnell Performance Optics along with Tasco property and sales rights to MidOcean Partners, a private equity firm based in New York and London.[4]

DO NOT BUY a Tasco telescope. They are not the best quality and the mounting for that scope will be shaky at best. Look elsewhere for a telescope. Here is one good brand:

I need to know the price on this telescope


They sell for $40- $70 at garage sales and on craigslist.com

Please do not buy this telescope. first it is only 60mm, a pair of 10x50mm binoculars are almost the same aperture, and the binoculars would be better for Astronomy.

Second, the scope is on a shaky tripod and also has a shaky weak mount which will make it difficult to point.

My advice is NOT to buy a Tasco telescope. These are called "department store" telescopes and their quality is not very good.

Instead buy from a regular on-line telescope shop. Here are two:

Locate a local astronomy club and attend their star parties. They will help you with the telescope. NO! Nexstar hand controller do not work on TASCO telescopes. You bought a VERY VERY small 60mm telescope. You would have been better off buying 10x50mm binoculars as your first "telescope".
