Missing finder scope

Hi, I bought a used Tasco Telescope 302675 and its missing the finder scope. The little scope attached to the outside of the telescope to help
center the large scope. I've done some searches online and it looks like
i could get a new scope of eBay for about $15.

Hi ive got a galaxsee tasco telescope but im having trouble seeing anything at night, i've took all the caps off lined up on a star but its just pitch black can you help thanks.


1. During the day, point the scope towards an object and align the finder scope to the telescope.
2. First object at night should be the moon. it will verify your finderscope alignment and you should have a clear view of the moon.
3. Use your lowest power eyepiece (largest number in mm) and point the finderscope to a star. The star should be in the center of the eyepiece.. If not, adjust the finder until it and the scope are centered.
4. You can use your higher power lens on the star nd it should still be in the FOV (field of view)
5. Scope may need to be aligned (collimated). Instructions on this should be included with the scope

I am trying to sell a Tasco 302675 telescope but it is missing the lens for the eye piece. What is it worth with and without the lens and how expensive is it to replace the lens?


Not very much. Maybe $30 or $40. Might be better to just donate it to a school. You can find dozens of these types of scopes for sale on craigslist.com

Just search for TELESCOPE.

No sorry, no manuals for these scopes.

Read my tips on my profile page. This is a simple refractor telescope.

I was given a Tasco 675 power reflector telescope model #40-114675, but didn't get an instruction book or dvd. I was able to find a star in the finder scope but couldn't see it through the eyepiece. it...


You must first ALIGN the finderscope with the main tube. Locate a bright object with the main telescope. Get it in the eyepiece- then without moving the telescope, align the finder scope on the same object.

Now you can use the finder like a gun site to center targets on the crosshairs. By the way the Fixya picture in your question always makes me laugh- the telescope in the picture is mounted BACKWARDS and pointed toward the ground!

Can use my orbitor 4500 w o a viewfinder?


Do you mean the small "finderscope" mounted on top?

Yes you can use it but the finder makes it easier to point the scope. You can buy small red dot finder scopes here:

I need information about a tasco 57t


You can download a manual at the MEADE telescope web site for free-- find one that is similar to your telescope and use it to figure out what parts you are missing, and to learn how your scope works.

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--
