Jrock and others, can you give advice on the set-up and use of a telescope I have just been given?

I just was given a Tasco 57500 (it is all the info I have) by a fellow staff member. It is pretty old, with a wooden-legged tripod and most of the pieces (I think). There is no instruction manual. Any suggestions as to how to get started? Please contact me at "trollop2beemer@yahoo.ca". thanks ... martin
