Use the weakest lens the lens cap is off I hope lol I have a Meade scope and it has thumbscrews for the lenses that must be tightened evenly.It's tricky to see through a telescope especially if you have a strong lens in there instead of a weaker one.

Cant see anything


Can you see anything during the day time? Practice focusing during the day time on a distant object using the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

The moon should be your first target at night.

Cant see ****


Cannot see anything in the daytime? We need more details.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Try focusing on a distant object during the day time.

You must follow the setup procedures in the manual for accurate GOTO function at night.

Dont know how to put the eye pieces on the telescope. cant see anything through the scope


Eyepieces ALWAYS go into the focuser. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Take it outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

The moon should be your first target at night. Read my TIPS on my profile page.

Can't see anything through the scope


During the day time, put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope, and practice focusing on a distant object.

At night the moon should be your first target. DO NOT use the 2x barlow.

Can not seem to focus when we look through the lens we just see the bk=lack sky we cannot seem to see anything


try this:
see the mini scope on top of the telescope?--that's called the finder scope--
you look through that to see what the telescope is aimed at, just like what a sniper does before he pulls the trigger.

put in the lowest power eyepiece you have in the telescope, the one with a high number on it.

it's a good idea to align the 'finder' with the telescope during the day time--it's much easier.

if your telescope and finder scope aren't aligned properly, aiming your telescope at any target will be off and you'll just get frustrated.
to do this, look through your finder scope and pick a far away target, put in the lowest power eyepiece you have, that's the one with a high number--
high number = low power = a nice big view in the telescope.
low number on eyepiece = high magnification, like a zoom lens.

always use the lowest eyepiece first, then work your way to higher magnification, if you want to get a closer look at your target.

use lowest power eyepiece in telescope--> look through finder scope -->focus the image--> switch to higher power of eyepiece for a closer look at your target.

practice this during the day until you're comfortable, then try it at night.
try the moon, it's a nice big target

you can also use binoculars to check out the night sky.
you can try using 7x35 or 7x50 binoculars.
you see a lot more stars and it gives nice big views of the stars and constellations...and the moon...

hope this helps :D

I cant figure out how to get the lenses to work?


If this is a small TASCO or BUSNELL telescope you bought a toy telescope--

Try this-- put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. This is your lowest magnification. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object-- try to see the moon at night once you learn how to focus.

Need a manual or directions to put telescope together


The eyepieces have numbers written on them-- the bigger the number the LOWER the magnification. Start with the eyepiece with the BIGGEST number-- practice focusing the scope during the daytime on a distant object..,..... once you do.. switch eyepieces .... and see how much closer everything looks.

Try for the moon as your first target at night--- you can download a free star chart at www.skymaps.com

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--
