First of all I am new to this site. I have had small telescopes for about 15 years, each being a bit bigger than the previous one. Recently I had the opportunity to buy a TASCO 20TE telescope. I figured this was certainty big enough to do what I want to do, that being seeing the planets perhaps in some detail and with some color. So it now stands in my garage. It came with a box of lenses and a small brochure but no instructions or manual. My problem is that it is HEAVY, particularly the base, so there is no way I can move it outside when I wish to use it. I have some hopes of leaving the cast base outside covered (as I think it may have been at times) and move the actual telescope and pieces that allow it to be trained on an object in the house. I have yet had no luck in finding any documents that show how it may be disassembled. The actual telescope tube can easily be removed but the pieces to which it is attached do not appear to be easily removed ad I do not want to force anything..
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
