Question about Tasco Specialty 56TN (200 x 50mm) Telescope

Need setup document for 8" Tasco 38T reflecting telescope

We were given a Tasco telescope, but no setup instructions. I could not find an exact match...this was the closest. It is a Tasco 38T D= 8" f/6. It has a 3X Barlow lense which is multi-coated. We have no experience whatsoever with telescopes so any help will be appreciated. Peace, MomV

Full instructions! Scope is basically the same as here:

Have fun and start out with your lowest power (biggest number) eyepiece and without the barlow. The moon is a nice place to start (and keep coming back to...;-)

ABO in Miami, FLA will sell a manual, or repair this telescope. They bought Tasco's assets and parts after it went bankrupt. Bushnell bought the rights to the Tasco name (only).

Have inherited Tasco Starguide telescope, missing sighter scope and instruction manual. Are these available ? Thanks.

There is a website that has a selection of manuals for telescopes for free download. It is unlikely that they will have the exact one you want, as Tasco made a large number of different models, but it is worth a look- at THIS LINK

I have just been given a tasco luminova and would like to download instructions, can you help?

Look on the Meade web site for one of their manuals. Look under refractor or reflector for one similar to your telescope.
