Try removing the dust cap at the front where the scope is.

Why are the lens upside down help


It is normal for an astro telescope to show objects upside down, as when viewing astro objects this makes little difference. If you want to view terrestrial things, such as your neighbor's bedroom window, you can fit an erect image diagonal, such as

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.

I have a edu science 70mm Astro-Gazer. I lost the manual and forgot how to use it. I have 4mm and 20mm lens and I can see moon via 20mm lense. But how can I use 4mm or 3X part to magnify the view ? Thanks!


That little scope will NEVER be able to use the 4mm with the 3xbarlow, just too mmuch magnification. The maximum possible magnification for ANY telescope is about 50 times aperture.

Your scope is about 3 inches so 150 power is the maximum.

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:

Cant see anything but black


You are NOT focusing correctly. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. Read my frequently asked questions TIP on my profile page.

We receive MORE bad reports on this particular telescope than on any other by the way. The SALE of this scope should be against the law! It's just a toy telescope.

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.

Can you take it back?

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