SOURCE: Sear's Refractoring telescope Parts

Most of the refractors sold by Sears were made by Towa of Japan. These used the Japanese standard .965" barrel diameter eyepieces. These are hardo come by today and usually not worth the hunt. Get an 1.25" to .965" "hybird" star diagonal that will permit the use of 1.25" accessories. Orion sells this item. HTH, Geo.

You won't find a manual-- however a discussion on your telescope is located at the web site below including a picture-- of one that is assembled...

SOURCE: Tasco 9T 234 x Astronomical telescope

That is a 60mm refractor style telescope on an equitorial mount. Meade has one that is very similar. They all go together in a similar fashion.

Look under REFRACTOR and download a Meade manual that is similar to your telescope.

You will not find one for that telescope. However Meade maintains manuals for all of their telescopes. Look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR heading for one that is similar to your telescope. They all assemble and are used in the same way.

Astronomical telescopes are meant to be used at night, for looking at the sky. Try it first on an easily found object like the Moon, with the lowest magnification eyepiece you have. Finding the focus point is difficult with higher magnifications, and they aren't really practical with a small scope such as this.

Hello... I'm kinda new to all this, so please bare with me! I recently purchased a used Orion Skyview 6 Deluxe EQ. The scope is in great shape and things look great through it. However, it did not...


First WHY would you use a erecting DIAGONAL in a reflector style telescope. Upside down images are completely normal for an astronomical telescope. You only need this diagonal for terrestrial viewing NOT for star gazing. ALL astronomical telescopes show upside down and or inverted images- it's completely normal.

If you cannot come to focus with the erecting diagonal, it's probably because the diagonal moves the eyepiece too far OUT away from the point where the scope comes to focus. Again-- you do not use those for night time sky viewing. Just stick the eyepiece directly into the focuser.

Hi there, I am having a problem with a Tasco 40-076420H telescope in that the image is on an angle. Any suggestions?


All astronomical telescopes show inverted images-- it is completely normal. If you want to do terrestrial viewing you need to buy an "erecting diagonal", like this one:

We purchased an edu science telescope. model - 70 mm astro-gazer telescope. When we look through the "finderscope" everything is upside down. What do we do to fix this problem?


It isn't a problem. Astronomical telescopes usually show an upside down image. There is a good reason for this- erecting the image needs more bits of glass in the light path, which reduces the amount of light and increases aberrations. Even if this is only slight, astronomers prefer to avoid it, and they don't really care which way up the Moon or Jupiter appear.

It is possible to fit an erecting prism or eyepiece to most astronomical telescopes, and some of them come with one (your main scope may have one), but one wouldn't bother to do this with the small finder scope.

I don't know about the motor on this scope.

You remove the whole large cap to use the telescope.

I don't know about cases for this scope. I just leave my scope set up in the corner of the dining room.

I purchased a 70mm twin star telescope, I assembled it, but when I look through the eyepiece, things are upside down. What do I need to do to make it upright?

It is possible to fit an erecting prism or eyepiece to most astronomical telescopes, and some of them come with one, but if you want a telescope primarily for terrestrial use, you are much better off buying what is called a "spotting scope".

Every thing is upside down how do I correct this??


All astronomical telescopes have upside down images. It's normal, nothing is wrong with the scope.

You can buy an "erecting prism" to invert the image right side up. Here is one:
