Question about Edu-Science (10166) Telescope

1 Answer

Neighbors 9 year old bought a Edu Science telescope at a yard sale. It appears to be missing the main lenses. On the viewing barrel is the name and the words coated optics; DIA. 76mm and F=700mm. No other markings or model #'s are available. What can be done to bring this back to operating level and is there an instructional manual available? The mirror and reflecting prism are fine, and the spoting scope also. Thanks John jlhenderson1@comcast.net

You can buy a new lens, or several lenses, for the telescope. You can find them on e-bay. Just look for your make and model and pick out different mm lenses for your style of viewing!

We bought an edu-science telescope at a garage sale and the eye-piece was broken. How can we get a bew part?


Eyepieces come in 3 sizes .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes. Measure the hole in the focuser and buy the correct size. The .965 size is hard to find.

My name is Raul my reflector telescope edu science brand images are focused Upside when any target in the horizon and would like to see how to fix it right and I would like to send me a manual.


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's completely normal. For terrestrial viewing you will need to buy an "erecting prism" like these:

Edu Scientific telescopes do not have manuals. They are being sold by Toys R Us, and are really not intended for actual astronomical use. We receive more complaints on this brand than all others. Craigslist.com has many of these types of scopes for sale because after buying them the people find out they are almost unusable.

Missing some parts on a telescope i purchased from a yard sale. where can i buy parts?


You cannot! That is one of the worst telescopes you can possibly have and use. It is being sold by Toys R Us. We receive more complaints on that brand than any other.

Your only source for parts will be a local well stocked hardware store. The scope you bought will do nothing but frustrate you.

Next time buy one of these:

You only use this for terrestrial viewing, all astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's normal.

However, what you need is called an "erecting prism" these are available from several on-line retailers. Here is one for sale:
http://www.astronomics.com/main/Image_Erecting_Prisms.asp/catalog_name/Astronomics/category_name/EDNECFUVSRWS8KLNTU5E38XSE1/Page/1

You have two problems: First the erecting prism probably costs almost as much as you paid for the telescope. Second they usually come ion 1.25 inch size, your telescope may be a .965 inch. Measure the hold where the eyepiece goes and see which size you have.

Sometimes Telescope Warehouse on Ebay has the .965 size.

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:

Reflector telescope 525 power bought at a yard sale with no instructions. Is there a manual or any information on how to use this product? I'm not even sure all the pieces are here.


You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade maintains a web site for their telescope manuals. Look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

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.
