Suggested Questions And Answer :

I am new to astronomey and I just purchased a used TASCO Starguide 60 telescope at a garage sale. I did not receive an owners/''how to'' manual; but I did get info from this site that directed me to a similar Nexstar telescope; my problem is I do not have a clue as to how to use this scope. The Nexstar 60, while similar, has many differences. I believe that I need to upgrade items(i.e. the hand control) to those like the Nexstar. Do the nexstar hand controls work with the TASCO? If so, is it worth it to do so? Believe me I need a LOT of help!!!

Locate a local astronomy club and attend their star parties. They will help you with the telescope. NO! Nexstar hand controller do not work on TASCO telescopes. You bought a VERY VERY small 60mm telescope. You would have been better off buying 10x50mm binoculars as your first "telescope".

Missing the eye piece for the Meade saturn 60az-m

Ebay is a great resource for eyepieces, i would suggest a 26mm ma.the eyepiece should drop in. if not you might be missing the image erecting diagonal. when the eyepiece is installed you should be looking perpendicular at the tube.

I purchased a Meade DS-90AT at a garage sale but it is missing the battery pack (the holder for 10 AA batteries). I called Meade and learned it is no longer available. Any suggestions as to what I can use instead...especially what type of adapter I need to plug into the 12V jack on the control panel of the scope?

You can use any 12 volt power pack like a car starter battery pack-- with the proper cigarette lighter style power cord.Just buy one with a cigarette lighter style plug-in port- 12 volt-- you can find these at auto parts stores for about $49.

Garage sale purchase

This is a small telescope.You will get limited views with this scope.However you will be able to see the craters on the moon and the rings of saturn.Although they will not have any detail.You will be able to use it as a terestrial scope.For that it is ideal.You will need an erecting lens to turn the view right side up.You need atleast 1 eyepiece,finderscope,erecting lens(for terestrial views)and maybe a barlow lens.Keep in mind it is not magnification you are looking for it is the ability to gather light and a 50mm is not going to gather much.the bigger the objective lens the more light it will gather.Think of animals that come out at night,their eyes are bigger than those that are out in day light.Because the bigger the lens the more light it gathers,so magnification only plays a part if you can see the target with your light gathering ability.Because just like 1000x0 is 0 the same gos for telescopes.1000xblack is black..
