Broken tripod for edu science telescope


You can buy a photo tripod and attach the tube to the tripod. You may need to visit a local hardware store to find the correct mounting bolts.

That scope is sold by Toys R Us -- as far as I know they DO NOT sell replacement parts.

Sorry

Hi, I have an old Edu Science telescope with tripod, mini top mounted telescope/finder, and 4 other eyepieces/leses. I looked for the closes one I could find because I am missing something to allow me to...


Can you focus on a distant object during the day time? Do you still have the "diagonal" if this is a refractor style telescope? This is a diagonal it goes into the focuser and then the eyepieces go into the diagonal. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal and practice focusing during the day time. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one.

Look at the picture-- the diagonal goes in the back of the telescope first-- then the eyepiece goes in the diagonal.

We've a 600X power edu-science telescope which seems to be missing the inner ring which might be what the instructions call a secondary precision mirror.


The secondary mirror is a small tilted mirror near the front end of the telescope mounted on what's called a "spider". It reflects the light from the large mirror in the bottom back out through the hole in the focuser.

Usually these are already assembled and in place when you buy a reflector style telescope.

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.

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:
