Replacement DV for telescope

We bought an Edu Science Astro-Nova 100 telescope for our kids recently, and the "How to Get the Most from Your Telescope" DVD that came with it does not work. How can we get a replacement DVD?

DO NOT buy an Edu Science telescope. We receive many complains on these scopes.

Try this web site for a nice small Dobsonian style telescope, like this one.

They do not sell replacement parts for that "toy" telescope-- which is being sold by Toys R Us.

You might be able to find bolts - nuts-- etc etc at a well stocked hardware store.

I bought a 102mm Astro-Nova Telescope. Why cant I see anything?


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:

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.

I have a edu science astro-nova 102 telescope one of the legs broke. can i replace it


Can you take it back?

You can buy a small camera tripod which may work IF you attach the telescope tube to the tripod.

We just set up edu science astro nova but we can't seem to get it to work. Do we need to unscrew the back out?


Sure wish you had not bought that telescope. It has the same aperture as a pair of binoculars, 10x50mm, the binoculars would have been better.

Take the lens cap off=

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope, and go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

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.
