Paying the credit company may be a problem I can't help you with but to remove the "dew" a simple way may be to sit the tube on a table in the sunlight with the diagonal and eyepiece removed. In a few minutes, the dew should be gone without having to remove the lens.

Is this covered in your model specific manual???

If the dew has settled between the lens element it may take longer and it may be a good idea to remove and separate elements in case the moisture washed some dirt and salts into the airspace between. Some models are glued and some have threaded retaining rings. The latter can be removed by simply unscrewing the lens cell from the tube and dew sheild. Then disassembled using a spanner wrench or suitable substitute. Avoid the heartach of a scratched lens element by cutting a mask from pressed cardboard because tool slips are common.

If the elements are glued in place then you will need to determine by best guess, where the elements come to geter and drill a small hole edge on into opposites sides of the tube. Then poor rubbing alcohol into the top hole while plugging the bottom hole with a thumb or finger. Fill the airspace with the alcohol and then after a few seconds alow it to drain. Place the element in the sunlight until all the moisture is gone and then seal with hotmel glue, silicon caulk or epoxy.

I need an eye piece for a Tasco 302675 60mm x 900mm and a copy of a anual if possible ?

Look on eBay for a 1.25 lens by 25 MM These are simple rugged and inexpensive scopes. Their well deserved reputation comes from the large pile of junk accessories that are provided with them.
p.s. You asked this question 2 years ago. Set the scope out to the trash... and get a different hobby.

I have the 40-060660 microscope and have it almost put together-- except for the barlowe lens and erecting eyepiece. I just can't figure out what goes where?

You mean TELESCOPE not microscope.

Do NOT use the 2 x barlow.

Put the diagonal into the telescope, then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

Read my TIPS on my profile page.

I have not been able to get items focused with the 90 degree attachment. No problem with through the lens staright...

Put the diagonal (the 90' attachment) into the telescope 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.

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

I just bought one at a garage sale and donn't know where to look thru

You never said the make or model or type of telescope???

Refractors have a lens in front and the eyepiece goes in the back end of the tube.

A reflector has a mirror and the eyepiece usually goes in NEAR the front end of the tube.

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.

Got a Tasco 60 x 700 telescope and can't see anything.

Your small telescope will never get much over 100 power-- sorry. So only use the lowest magnification eyepieces (those have the LARGEST number printed on them)-- try for the moon first-- and practice focusing the telescope.
