Question about Bushnell Tasco Telescope Galaxsee 525x60mm Refractor Telescope 46-060525

Tasco equatorial mount

I just picked up a cheapo Tasco Reflector at a garage sale. It's a 4.5x500mm (It wasn't in the product list and I had to pick one). It's missing the knobs from the equatorial mount. Where can I get some?

Where can I find a manual for a Tasco Reflector telescope, Model 11TR


The Tasco web site does not list that model-- however it is a small reflector style telescope similar to this model--

http://www.tasco.com/products/manuals/Luminova40-076420Inst.pdf

Use the above manual to help you assemble the scope.

I have a Tasco Luminova 40-114675 and i cant figure it out. I bought it at a garage sale and it didnt come with a manual and i dont know how to use it. i cant see anything out of it


You can get a manual on this web site:
http://www.tasco.com/pages/instruction-manuals/

This is a reflector style telescope. with mirrors-- probably on an equatorial mount which needs to be polar aligned in order to be used. Read this:

I have inherited a Bausch and Lomb 780200 telescope with no instructions as to how to set it up. I have it working but do not have the equatorial mount properly adjusted.


Is this your telescope?

If it is you can use a similar manual from TASCO-- look on this page for a reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount.

http://www.tasco.com/pages/instruction-manuals/

They all assemble and are used in a similar fashion.

This telescope was passed down to me without a manual so I have not a clue as to how to work it. Is there one available on line that I could print off? ( Mine is the F 500 D 114 mm


This is a REFLECTOR style telescope probably on an equatorial mount. They all assemble in a similar fashion.

Go to Meade brand telescope's web site and look under the 4.5 inch REFLECTOR heading for a manual that is similar to your scope. You can download it for free.

I bought a used Tasco Galaxsee 45-060525 for my next door neighbor's young boys who are home-schooled to study astronomy. The lens are all foggy/cloudy. Any suggestions?


Wish you DID NOT buy this scope. Tasco, Bushnell, are both what we call "department store" telescopes.

Also the mount is called an equatorial mount. It must be polar aligned in order to use it. Read my TIP on polar alignment on my profile page.

The eyepieces can be cleaned with any eyeglass cleaning kit or photographic lens cleaning kit from a camera store. Be gentle when cleaning.

Next time buy them a scope like this one called a Dobsonian mounted reflector.

I got a Meade Model 4600 at a yard sale with no info on it. I think it is missing a lens. Is there any way I can find out. Also, is there any written material or directions I can get for it? Thanks. K


This is a reflector style telescope on an Equatorial mount.

The mount must be polar aligned in order to use it. Read my TIPS on equatorial mounts on my profile page.

The eyepieces slip right into the focuser. The LARGER the number written on the eyepice the LOWER the magnification.

Here are all the Meade manuals, find your telescope near the REFLECTOR topic header:

My little boy was just given one of these tasco galaxsee 46114375 telescopes, and we don't know squat about it. Can anyone get us started on how to use it, etc...?


If it is like the one in the picture on your question this is a small reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned on Polaris the North star in order to use it properly. That's why we NEVER recommend an equatorial mount as a first telescope or as a gift for a child.

You can read my TIP about equatorial mounts on my profile page to learn how to align the mount. However I would recommend that you RETURN the telescope if you can and buy him one just like this one.

http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=09804

It is small and light and can easily be carried outside. in two pieces the tube, and the base. Try to attend a star party by a local Astronomy club and the members will help you with either of these telescopes.

Looking for manual for Tasco 11 TR. Don


This is a 4.5 inch reflector on an equitorial mount. Doubtful you will find a Tasco manual. However Meade has a very similar telescope and they all assemble in the same fashion:

Here:

You can read my TIPS on my profile page to learn about equatorial mounts and how to polar align them.

Can u please tell me how much the TASCO GALAXSEE


This is a very small refractor on a shaky equatorial mount. Do NOT buy this telescope. It's what we call a "department" store scope. You can find 50 of them for sale used on Craigslist, where they are sold after the owner finds out they are a toy telescope.

PLUS the EQ mount must be polar aligned in order to work.

Look at a Dobsonian telescope like this one-
