Set screws attach the lens and barlows. they are little silver knobs. you should also attach your barlows before the angle piece and lens for a clear picture

I cannot see anything with my telescope


During the day time? This is a VERY small refractor style telescope. Put the diagonal into the focuser at the rear of the tube. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. Take the scope outside in the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

My friend has the tasco 49 telescope, but unable to view anything- he has no manual for operation please forward installion, and operational manual by email


This is a simple nrefractor telescope. Put the diagonal into the focuser and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

All of Tasco's manuals are on this web site:
http://www.tasco.com/pages/instruction-manuals/

The manual has assembly instructions -- it does NOT tell you HOW to use a telescope to find objects in the night sky. Locate a local Astronomy club and the members will help you.

I cannot focus anything. Everything I see is completely black. No matter what do I can not get this contraption to work


This is a very simple refractor telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal, then put the diagonal into the telescope. REMOVE the lens cap at the front.

Now practice focusing during the day time on a distant object.

Can not focus telescope lens pieces do not fit


What Tasco do you own is it a refractor or reflector? Does it have a lens in front -- then it's a refractor; or mirrors, then it's a reflector.

On a refractor the eyepieces go in the back of the tube, sometimes you also have a diagonal which goes into the scope first and then the eyepiece goes into the diagonal. The diagonal is simply an L shaped device with a mirror inside that makes it easier to look through the scope when it is pointed UP at an angle.

On a reflector the focuser is on the FRONT side of the tube, and the eyepiece goes into the focuser.

Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser or into the diagonal. This is your LOWEST magnification.

Practice focusing --- until you get used to how it is done. Turn the focuser knob to the left slowly-- if nothing comes to focus then try turning it to the right. It may take several full turns to come to focus.

At night the moon should be your first target.

Read my TIPS on my profile page.

ABOUT NOT FITTING: eyepieces come in 3 sizes, .975, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes. Measure the hole and then measure the eyepiece-- it may be that you have the wrong size eyepieces for that scope. The correct size can be purchased on line from many retailers. Here is one telescope retailer that sells eyepieces and other accessories:

How do the two objective lenses go in a telescope?


It depends if it is a REFLECTOR or a REFRACTOR style telescope. You never said what you own??

On a reflector the focuser is on the front end of the telescope on the side of the tube. The eyepiece goes into the focuser.

On a refractor style telescope the focuser is on the small end of the tube, the main lens is on the UP side pointed toward the sky. The eyepiece goes into the focuser on the backend of the telescope. Sometimes you will have a "diagonal" which goes into the focuser first and then the eyepiece goes into the diagonal. The diagonal makes it easier to look through the scope when it is pointed UP high into the sky.

I need information about a tasco 57t


You can download a manual at the MEADE telescope web site for free-- find one that is similar to your telescope and use it to figure out what parts you are missing, and to learn how your scope works.

You can find repalcement eyepieces on eBay. You will have to know the size of the barrel (the chrome part). Stnadard sizes are .96, 1.25 and 2 inches.

PLEASE HELP


Here is a picture of the scope setup--

http://www.shopwiki.com/detail/d=Tasco_Luminova_660_x_60mm_Refractor_Telescope/

Very simple to operate--

Take lens Cap off

Put diagonal into telescope (an "L" shaped component with a small mirror inside)

Put eyepiece into diagonal- use the lowest magnification which is the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it.

Go outside during the daytime and practice focusing the telescope on a distant object at least 100 yards away...... tuen the focus knob very slowly.
