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:

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.

When I look through the telescope all I see is black. I can look through the finderscope and see things. But I can't seem to see anything but black from the telescope. edu science 102mm Astro-Nova telescop...


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.

My 102mm astro-nova telescope shows everthing upside down. am i missing a piece for my telescope?


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!

Received 102mm astro-nova telescope for xmas. How do you use it? Came with no instructions. Not sure which end to point at the object to be viewed. Removing what looks like a lens cap does nothing.


The eyepiece is on the FRONT end of the telescope which is pointed UP.

The mirror is in the bottom.

Remove the lens cap and put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. The image will be upside down but this is not a problem. NO up or down in outer space!

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.

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.
