I have a solution! Tasco Starguide ST-60700CT is virtually identical to NexStar 60 GT and the NexStar manual can be downloaded from http://www.nexstarsite.com/Manuals.htm

I have a Tasco Starguide ST-60700CT telescope with no manual. Tasco no longer has a web site with the old manuals on them. Where can I get a manual?


Is this near enough the same to be used? http://www.celestron.com/c3/images/files/downloads/NexStar_SLT_manual.pdf

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--
