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:http://picasaweb.google.com/Ben.Bartine/Meade826Have 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...;-)

Not worth it. Buy a better scope (Meade, Celestron or Orion) and save frustration

I cannot see anything with my telescope - Tasco Specialty 301051N (100 x 50mm) Telescope


During the day time? This is a VERY small refractor style telescope. Put the diagonal into the focuser at the rear of the tube. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. Take the scope outside in the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.Read my TIPS on my profile page.

What do you use the barlow lesns for? - Tasco Specialty 301051N (100 x 50mm) Telescope


The Barlow lens goes between the diagonal and an eyepiece. It doubles (2x) the magnification of the eyepiece used.It does this by halving the f/ ratio of the scope.Eyepiece alone gives 35x; barlow with eyepiece =70x.Note: this scope comes with an erecting eyepiece and is NOT suitable for atronomy use (other than perhaps the moon)

Need a manual for tasco 56t sd don't know how to use it


Here is the manual:http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:ANsyqHrcy1UJ:www.tasco.com/products/manuals/Tasco56TN-57TN-301051N-301004N-301005N.pdf+tasco+56tn+telescope+manual&hl=en&gl=us&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESiCAxnIsokVaYsESKffWHIqbDg7h3VF-AFm2iMHA2-oqpTo3PvVxpRjpalSqaBGlyl8BlkJZb049t8Ooz6AHNKb09ssXUCNiaRi4C2QND2EanE_73ROmmNcjC_KnD-RJOimbSpx&sig=AHIEtbT5bdFoxKc2OD1wUa-4xOHbz9fbqQThis is a very small 50mm refractor telescope. The same aperture as a pair of 10x50mm binoculars, which would have been better for viewing sky objects. The maximum possible magnification is about 100 power (50 times aperture of 2 inches).The field of view is very small you must be pointed directly at the sky object to see it. This is why we recommend a pair of binoculars as your first telescope. Binoculars have a wider field of view which makes finding things easier for the beginner.Read my TIPS on my profile page, and read this:http://www.texasastro.org/telescope.php

Have a tasco 57T F=630mD=50mm telescope. When custom checked it they lost the eye class piece. can i get a new one? Didn't have name on list!


You can find repalcement eyepieces on eBay. You will have to know the size of the barrel (the chrome part). Stnadard sizes are .96, 1.25 and 2 inches.
