    I own one of the Tasco Novice 402 Power Refractor Telescopes, model #30-060402. However I am having all sorts of problems trying to get the Telescope to function properly. At night when I try to look at the moon [like recently when the moon was close to earth], I just cannot get a clear view of the moon. Also, the hazy view I do get is actually upside down!! Why on earth is this ? The same is true of the Finder Scope, i.e. hazy and the image is upside down. What to do about this ? In the last few days when the moon was big and bright, I just couldn’t focus on it at all, I see plenty of light but the image is just so blurry it is hard to know what I’m looking at. Is there something wrong ? Maybe I’m not assembling the Telescope correctly. or perhaps using the wrong eye-pieces at the wrong time. Whatever I do and whatever combinations of lenses I use, the end result is always the same, blurry and upside down. During the day, the image is clear and bright, but it is still upside down.

    Please help. I feel very disappointed at missing the opportunity to view the moon these last few days, but if you can help me fix the problem, then I can look forward to viewing other Astral Events in the future.

    I am experiencing exactly the same thing. Everything I look at is blurry. I got my 30-060402 several days ago and was not able to use it at all. We either did not assemble properly or it is faulty unit. Did you figure out what was the problem?
