Tasco Part Required

Postby LPBabe101 on Thu May 26, 2011 5:06 am

I have just purchased a TASCO.MODEL NO.40-076420H. I need an Erector Lens. Do you know where I could find one please?

First, does your focuser use 1.25" or .965" (one inch) eyepieces? Measure the size of the opening. If it uses 1.25" eyepieces, there are image erectors on the market designed for use in reflectors. Try the Konus 1.5x for reflectors. Note that on some reflector models, you may not have enough travel distance in the focuser for this to work, but it is your only option.

If you have the obsolete .965" focuser size, you are probably out of luck, other than to check Ebay and so on for a used one.
