Tasco Reflection Telescope Model 11TE-5

Postby Scorpio012 on Tue Aug 21, 2012 5:37 pm

Hello everyone, I'm new to this site and I have high hopes that someone out there can help me. I have a couple of questions one is, I have a Tasco Model 11TE-5 telescope and I was wondering if anyone knew how old it is? Also this telescope was given to me without any idea how to use it, no instruction manual of any kind. I called Tasco, but soon learned that they were bought out by Bushnell back in 2002 and they don't have anything that could help me. Does anyone know where I could get a copy of the instruction manual for this telescope? I want to give it to my son, but I would like to be able to give him instructions that he could read when he gets the time. Any help that anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

This should answer all if your question:

Scroll down to the PDF for your telescope that is from the 1970's:

George P, thank you for your help with your suggestion. I did go the website you told me about and it is helpful, but what I really need and I should have mentioned this to you in my first post, and that is some of the telescope is in pieces, I don't know if it was taken apart for moving at one time but is there any place like the site you suggested before that I could go and find out exaxctly how to put it back together again properly? If so It would be a big help to me and I would like to thank you again for the time and patience you've shown so far in dealing with this problem of mine!!
