adjust the eyepiece focus, turn it till you can see the crosshairs plainly when looking through it at a light background (the sky,or a white wall) lock it down.

Might need to check the eye relief. It may be set either too for out or too far in for your eye to focus it properly.

I'd ditch the Trasco ASAP. There are tons of great scope choices at all price points. Don't skrimp on the scope.

I you cannot see the cross hairs at all, then the scope is kaput. I realize folks are on all ranges of budgets, but do yourself a favor and buy the best scope that you can possibly afford. It will not be money wasted.
