instruction manual, Tasco 40-060578

Postby Wiscguest on Wed Aug 08, 2007 3:16 pm

Anyone know where I might go online to view the instruction manual for my Tasco 40-060578? It was purchased new in the late '90s & shelved due to difficulty figuring out how to use it. Now I've misplaced the manual & have a son old enough to tackle it again.

Thanx!

Hi

Even if you find a manual, it will be very generic and not well supplied with detail on how to use the telecope. About all you can hope to get is a parts breakdown. If you want actual information on how to use it, you can get as much information in an article, such as the ones I have posted on our website, Telescope FAQs and also , A Dozen Telescope Observing Tips For Beginners

Hi

Same answer. See the articles above - they work for any telescope. For a manual, contact Tasco at 1-800-423-3537 or http://www.tasco.com/support/customer_service.shtml

i have this telescope here are the instructions if you have not assembled the tripod align the holes on the tripod legs with the yoke mount besure the hinge flange on each leg is pointing in the center then attach the accessory tray to each of the flanges.
remove telescope from box thread the micro adjustable altitude control through the altitude control locking knob.attach main body of telescope by aligning the hole in the telescope saddle with the holes in the yoke.screw yoke locking knobs through both holes and tighten the knobs.
remove the finderscope with the finderscope bracket remove the two tops screws on top of the main boby of the telescope and position the finderscope bracket so that the holes line up tighten securely.
insert diagonal into the focus tube secure with small retaining screw.
