Do you mean eyepieces? If so, they are either .965", 1.25" or 2". I'm betting yours are .965" or 1.25" which is a standard and you should be able to fit anyones same-sized eyepieces in the focus housing. Measure the diameter and you will know.

If you mean lenses, then the question is confusing, as you increase or decrease power by switching out eyepieces, not objective lenses.

Look on eBay for eyepieces and you'll find plenty.

We have a Tasco telescope 58T. Lenses are been


Yes you can buy eyepieces at several retailers. Measure the hole. Eyepieces come in 3 different sizes: .965, 1.25 and 2 inch sizes.

Here are several retailers:

Tasco telescope[46-114500]cannot see anything through lens.bought


THE protective cover is the FRONT of the telescope!!!

The focuser is on the front like the picture above. TURN the scope around -- you have it pointing at the ground right now!

Read my TIPS on my profile page. And read this and look at the pictures:

My 9t eye piece was rattling and mislined. I took it apart cleaned lenses and wondered is there a lense location or direction?


Never disassemble an eyepiece unless you know exactly how to put it back together. Only the outer glass lens ever needs cleaning.

Without knowing exactly what link of eyepiece you have (they are all different designs) it's impossible to tell you which way the internal lenses go.

Your best bet may be to simply purchase another eyepiece.

Our son took apart our Tasco 59T telescope and now none of us can put it back together correctly. Can anyone help with this?


This is a simple alt ax refractor telescope. Most of them go together the same way.

Here is a similar manual for a Meade refractor. Use it to put your scope back together,

I need to find a manual to assemble this telescope.


Meade has a web site with all of the manuals for their telescopes --- look around and find one that is similar in style to your telescope and use it to assemble your scope and learn about the different parts.

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--

My lenses


Thank you for the reply.
No thank you not interested in the plan.
I purchased the tasco lenses that were for a different tasco scope, and tried them on both the tasco
galaxsee scop and a bushnell that I have and they worked perfectly on both.
Thanks again.
