Tasco Space Station 800 x 70 Telescope

How would you explain to a complete novice how to use a telescope? I was given a Tasco Space Station 800 x 70 Telescope and my son assembled it for me, but I have no idea how to use it. HELP! I have taken an interest in the stars - trying to identify constellations etc., and a friend thought I would like a telescope. I would love it - if only I could use it....

Tasco Space Station 800 x 70 Telescope


You are only going to be able to see the moon and several of the brighter planets-- and maybe a few bright star clusters -- like M44.Practice focusing during the daytime on a distant object-- and only use the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it-- try to locate a local Astronomy club and attend one of their free star parties.

Hi I have just got a Tasco telescope space station and i have it all set up but cant seem to be able to remove the lense at the end of the telescope. How would it come off?? Thanks


I assume this is the refractor style model-- the "L" shaped device on the end is a diagonal -- the eyepiece goes into the diagonal. Loosen the set-screws.

I just got the Tasco Space Station for Christmas (Refractor) and for the life of me I can't make any elevation changes with the tripod that came with it. Please help


This is a simple up down--- left right mount. There should be a knob that you loosen a little bit to raide the scope UP in elevation.

Hi, your telescope appears to be a newtonian reflector on a dobsonian mount. This type of scope is basically a point and shoot design, simplicity itself and many experienced astronomers swear by them, for there ease of use, set-up time etc. The number 6 in the model number denotes the aperture (size of mirror) in inches. This is a good starter scope (much better than these small scopes that boast 525 X magnification) and with it tou will be able to clearly see Jupiters four main moons and the planets cloud belts. You will be able to see Saturn and it's ring system. Many nebulae, star clusters etc will become visable, that were invisible before. Getting started with this kind of scope is pretty easy even for an absolute beginner. Set up the scope on a flat even surface, putting it all together should be self-explanatory. Insert the lowest power eyepiece (Usually the one with the biggest lens, and the one with the biggest number i.e. 40mm) and begin by pointing the open end of the scope at a bright object in the sky. To get you going with a bit of a buzz, I suggest Jupiter. Jupiter rises in the SE at 20.50, and is due South at around half past midnight, Look for a bright star that doesn’t twinkle to the right of the moon at about midnight, and that’s Jupiter! Whilst looking through the eyepiece, carefully move the scope back and forth, up and down in the general direction of the planet. Remember, you are only looking at a very small part of the sky, probably about the size of a full moon. It is unlikely your scope will be in focus at this stage so what you will find will probably look like a doughnut. When you find this “doughnut” you will need to focus. Adjust the focus knob until you see a crisp image of a small disk. If you are in Europe, you will see three bright moons (two on one side and one on the other) the fourth is hard to see tonight, but if you are lucky, you may glimpse a view of the shadow of this moon (Europa) as it crosses the disk. On the East coast of the US, you will also see three moons clearly, the fourth, Ganymede. Is still in Jupiter’s shadow at half past midnight, but by 1pm, it will become visible as it moves out of the shadow. Keep looking for Ganymede during this half hour, it makes interesting viewing, and gives a sense of realism and motion to the whole event. Try using different eyepieces as you become more accustomed to your scope, everything you see is upside down and back to front. Using different eyepieces will require re-focusing, but with a bit of practice, it will become second nature. Finally, adjusting your finder scope. You will notice that the finder is held in place with two (sometimes three) adjustable screws. It may be best to set the finder scope up in the daytime. First find a distant object in the main scope (the further the better) a chimney pot on a distant roof etc. Then using the adjusting screws, centre the same object in the finder. It’s a bit fiddly at first, but you will get the hang of it. Then when night time comes, finding celestial objects is much easier. First locate the object in the finder scope, centre it, and the object should be in view in the main scope. Hope this helps to get you going. Kind Regards….Dave

I have a Tasco coated optics 304048 telescope and no manual can u


Difficult to find manuals for small telescopes. However Meade maintains a web site for all of their telescopes. Look under the REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR headings for a manual similar to your telescope. They all go together about the same.http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html

That BLACK PAPER is there to cause the trap of light and dust and etc from the MIRROR and is held in place usally with adjustable locking screws to balance the reflective properties of the lens.

Missing lens I lost the lens on my TASCO MS2530 25X30mm Full Coated Optics ll.5FT/100YDS 38/100M. It is the small lens that screw on the eye piece end of this small telescope. This is a small telescope with a tri pod stand.


This is going to be very difficult to replace. However you can try contacting this company to see if they can order the part? Tasco does not sell replacement parts directly to the public.http://agenaastro.com/
