THE protective cover is the FRONT of the telescope!!!

The focuser is on the front like the picture above. TURN the scope around -- you have it pointing at the ground right now!

Read my TIPS on my profile page. And read this and look at the pictures:

About my tasco 46-060675 D=60mm F=900mm come with 3 eye lense 1(sr4mm) 2 (k10MM) 3(k25MM) and two tube 1(1.5x erecting eyepiece) 2 (3xbarlow lense


The different eyepieces are to give different magnifications. This is worked out by dividing the focal length of the telescope, f = 900, by that of the EP. So the 25 mm Kellner (that is the type of optics in the EP) will give 900 / 25 = 36 times magnification.

The erecting eyepiece is used for terrestrial viewing. Normally with an astro telescope everything is upside down as that does not matter when looking at a star. So when you want to look through someone's bedroom window you use this.

A Barlow lens is an add-on magnifier. If you add this onto any EP (it normally fits between the EP and the scope) it will increase magnification x 3.

There is a practical limit to what any scope will deliver, governed by its aperture (the size of the front lens) and for your scope this will be about x 120 magnification. Beyond that the image becomes too dim and fuzzy. This means that your 4 mm eyepiece ( x 225 magnification) won't be much use. It will be hard to find the object you are trying to observe, it will be hard to focus, and the image will wobble around. Nor is your barlow lens much use either I fear.

You might consider another eyepiece around 18 mm to give a nice spread. A Plossl type is good. If you get serious about astronomy, I think you will immediately want a better scope after using the Tasco.

I bought aTasco Space Staion telescope (Model 49114500(Reflector) second hand,came with 4 different len's, but still can not see ANYTHING! There's a bright full moon out, but can not see anything. No light...


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Go outside and try again.. The end with the focuser is the UP end of the tube. The mirror inside is the BOTTOM of the tube nearest the ground.

Yes you can buy eyepieces at several retailers. Measure the hole. Eyepieces come in 3 different sizes: .965, 1.25 and 2 inch sizes.

Just bought,used, set up but cant see anything through any of the lenses


I answered your question in your other posting.

SEE this and look at the picture of the Dobsonian reflector. Notice the eyepiece and focuser is on the FRONT of the telescope. The mirror is the BOTTOM of the telescope.

My 9t eye piece was rattling and mislined. I took it apart cleaned lenses and wondered is there a lense location or direction?


Never disassemble an eyepiece unless you know exactly how to put it back together. Only the outer glass lens ever needs cleaning.

Without knowing exactly what link of eyepiece you have (they are all different designs) it's impossible to tell you which way the internal lenses go.

Your best bet may be to simply purchase another eyepiece.

I cant figure out how to get the lenses to work?


If this is a small TASCO or BUSNELL telescope you bought a toy telescope--

Try this-- put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. This is your lowest magnification. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object-- try to see the moon at night once you learn how to focus.

My lenses


Thank you for the reply.
No thank you not interested in the plan.
I purchased the tasco lenses that were for a different tasco scope, and tried them on both the tasco
galaxsee scop and a bushnell that I have and they worked perfectly on both.
Thanks again.

Hi we cant seem to see anything from our tasco telescope


It is very difficult to align a straight telescope on small objects like stars and planets. The moon is an easy target, try locating it 1st
