Question about Edu-Science (10166) Telescope

1 Answer

I have an edu science refractor telescope. it was being scrapped by the local school because they didn't have anyone that knew how to use it. It has no markings on the body. the focus eyepeice says 76mm or 700mm. can I find a manual? lacking a manual how can I tell if it is functional. I have the 2 eyepeices. It also has what looks like a tracking mecanism, but could be just right/left and up/down manual controls.

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: Meade manuals 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.

I need some parts. Where can I find them? It is a Reflector Telescope 672 Power.

You will not find actual parts for this small refractor, being sold by Toys R Us.

You might try the store where you bought it, but most likely no parts are available. Try a local well stocked hardware store for simple bolts and nuts that you may need.

Next time do not buy a "department store" toy telescope. Read my TIPS on my profile page and read this:

I just purchased an edu science 102mm telecope. I

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.
