I have an Edu science t1000hd telescope. What do I need to do to be able to see planets like Saturn? I just have the two eye pieces that came with the telescope.

SOURCE: edu science reflector telescope instructions 600x

This is a small refractor telescope-- they pretty much all work the same-- BUT don't expect to get more than 100 power out of the scope. Yes I know the box said 600 power but it's a lie. In my 8 inch telescope I rarely get above 250 power and my scope is many times larger than the one you have--

Now put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope-- the LARGER the number the LOWER the magnification. During the day time practice focusing on a distant object --- AND line-up the small finder scope on top with the main telescope tube. Look at the top of a distant light or church steple, or telephone pole. Without moving the telescope adjust the small finder scope by loosening and tightening the screws around the tube holding the finder scope-- put the crosshairs on the same spot as the main telescope.

Now you can use the small finder to locate objects in the sky-- the moon should be your first night time target.

SOURCE: I have lost the instructions for the edu science

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE THE 2x or 3X barlow.

Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

You can buy eyepieces at many on-line retailers. Measure the hole. Eyepieces come in 3 sizes; .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes.

SOURCE: manual for an edu science telescope F=700mm

You will not find a manual for that telescope which is sold by Toys R Us. However Meade and Bushnell both maintain web sites with all of their telescope manuals--- here:

http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html Meade manuals

http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html Bushnell

Look around the web sites under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your telescope. They all assemble and are used the same way.

SOURCE: just go the telescope and my son lost a piece on

Yes, but the ones for sale are all metal and not plastic like the ones that came with that scope (sold by Toys R Us).

They may cost more than what the entire telescope cost you.

Eyepieces come in 3 sizes --- .965 inch, 1.25 inch, and 2 inch. Measure the hole in the focuser. The .965 size is a little hard to find since most commercial telescopes use the 1.25 inch size.

No -- that scope is sold by Toys R Us-- no manuals exist anywhere on the internet. You can buy eyepieces from various on-line retailers-- measure the hole in the focuser. Eyepieces come in 3 different sizes--- .965 inch, 1.25 inch, and 2 inch.

Your scope either takes-- .965 or 1.25 inch eye[pieces-- buy the correct size. Here are two retailers:

By the way-- we receive more complaints about that brand of telescope than just about any other brand. It is being sold by a toy store.

Missing parts and where to buy them.1)spotting scope2)object eye pieces Tasco 303911 model


You will not find replacement parts for this small telescope. For screws or bolts look for something that will work in a local well stocked hardware store.

Never buy another "department" store telescope! Read my TIPS on my profile page.

Can't see out of eye piece


This is a reflector style telescope. The MIRROR is in the base! Light enters the front near the focuser and goes down the tube and bounces off the mirror and back to the front and through the eyepiece. The EYEPIECE end is pointed up.

Your scope TUBE should look like the reflector telescope on this web page:

http://www.amazon.com/Edu-Science-Astro-Nova-102-Telescope/dp/B001NLOQN2

Wish you had NOT bought this telescope. For about the same price you could have bought this:
http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=08942

The scope above has a 6 inch mirror which is almost twice the size of the scope you bought.

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.
