My son has this telescope and I am looking for replacement legs for the unit. I was curious to know if these can be found or, is the unit now obsolete? The legs broke at the base of the unit where the leg fits into the base.

You can purchase a tripod on the internet-- BUT it will probably be more expensive than the telescope you have.

See if you can rig something up using wood and fittings from your local hardware store.

My son broke the eye piece of the edu-science telescope, where can I get the parts cheap?


Eyepieces come in 3 sizes -- .965, 1.25 and 2 inch sizes.

Measure the hole in the focuser and order the correct size.

We bought my son EDU SCIENCE Telescope model # lcm60 We would like to find stronger eye pieces for my son.


Your scope is 60mm not much bigger than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars the most magnification it will give is about 100 power or less.

Eyepieces come in 3 sizes, .965 inch, 1.25 inch, and 2 inch. Measure the hole in the focuser and buy the correct size. Here are two retailers:

I have reflector telescope 672 power and im missing some pieces. I need to get one tripod leg, all the screws to the telescope and the finderscope. I needed to find out how to go about getting these...


It's not worth hunting down that many parts for that small telescope. You cannot just buy a tripod leg-- you must buy the entire tripod. Eyepieces cost at least $30 each-- and a finderscope at least another $30-$40.

Locate another complete telescope. It's not economical to repair that low cost small scope. Toys R Us who sell that brand do not furnish replacement parts.

Hello..... my son's telescope broke at the base where the tripod legs connect. We bought it at Toys R Us about 14 months ago. The model is Astro-Gazer 70. Is there a place to get a replacement base?


No sorry. This is just about the worst telescope you can buy. We get more complaints on that brand than just about any other. You might find something at a well stocks hardware store that you can use to fix it???

But why even try to fix it. Buy your son this telescope instead.

Parts/manual for Edu Science 3 in 1


You will not find a manual for this telescope. However Toys R Us sells this brand. The store may allow you to copy the manual which is inside the box of a new telescope.

We receive more complaints about this "toy" telescope than just about any other brand. Read this also:

Can you take it back?

You can buy a small camera tripod which may work IF you attach the telescope tube to the tripod.

How to use telescope at night?


Many people have the same problem-- with these small telescopes you are stuck with seeing only the moon, and several other planets, and maybe a few bright star clusters.

These are all TINY objects (except for the moon).... when you look through the telescope you are looking at a section of sky about the size of your fingertip held at arms length-- the scope must be pointed DIRECTLY at the object. Practice on the moon first-- and then try to find Saturn which is up in the sky right now-- it looks like a dim (slightly yellow) star.
