No, all astronomical telescopes show upside down images. You can buy what is called an "erecting prism" (just Google it) to use for terrestrial viewing.

Remember --- no up or down in space! Read my "TIPS" in my Profile, called ----"Frequently Asked Question".

Clear Skies!

Need a right angle lens adapter for an Edu Science 102mm Asto Nova telescope. Where can I find one? Or should I return the whole thing?


Reflector style telescopes DO NOT need a diagonal. The eyepiece goes directly into the focuser.

Have you used the telescope with just the eyepiece? That is all you need.

I would be surprised if ToysRus told you to contact FixYa. This is an advice site largely manned by volunteers, with no connection to ToysRus or Edu-Science. I would suggest that you contact Edu-Science to get the missing CD, or insist that ToysRus refund for the defective (missing parts) item they have sold you.

Don't worry about Jupiter. It is not going to disappear. I have been watching it for decades and it is almost always up there.

Bought the edu science astro nova 102mm do you take the cap on the end by the finderscope completely off or just the middle? is there really a secondary mirror inside I can't see it?I am new at this I...


Take the cap completely OFF. You will see the secondary mirror holder, with the small mirror in t6he center pointed at the primary mirror in the bottom.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope and take itn outside during the daytime. Practice focusing on a distant object.

Go to the library or use the internet and Google "reflector telescope". Start reading about them.

I bought a 102mm Astro-Nova Telescope. Why cant I see anything?


Why did you buy a telescope being sold by TOYS R US!

We get more complaints on this scope than any other brand.

Read the negative reviews here:

Next time buy from a regular telescope retailer like this one:

The end with the focuser. Then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. I believe this model is a REFLECTOR, if it is there is a mirror in the bottom of the scope.

REFRACTORS have a lens in the front of the scope.

See this:

Then read my Frequently Asked Questions TIP on my profile page. The picture you selected shows a REFRACTOR telescope.

Basics first - please don't get angry at the suggestions ......

1) On the main telescope, can you see the actual glass lenses at both ends of it (i.e. you've removed both of the lens caps).

2) If you remove the eyepiece (in broad daylight), can you hold it up to an indoor light and see clearly through it?

3) If you now look into the socket where the eyepiece goes, can you see any form of light (in daylight) or is it totally black?

A lot of smaller telescopes have caps both ends, and sometimes caps both ends of both parts, to stop debris getting in when in transit or swapping objectives.

I have the astro nova 102mm and everything looks upside down when I look through it


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. There is no up or down in space. Erecting the image would require more GLASS which would dim the image.
