All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's completely normal. For terrestrial viewing you will need to buy an "erecting prism" like these:

Edu Scientific telescopes do not have manuals. They are being sold by Toys R Us, and are really not intended for actual astronomical use. We receive more complaints on this brand than all others. Craigslist.com has many of these types of scopes for sale because after buying them the people find out they are almost unusable.

We receive more complaints on that brand than just about any other. There are two types of scopes.

A refractor with a lens in front and a focuser on the back--- and a reflector that uses mirrors.

For a refractor-- insert the diagonal onto the rear of the scope and then put the eyepiece into the diagonal-- DO NOT USE the 2x barlow. Take it out in the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

If it is a reflector-- just put the same eyepiece into the focuser -- do not use the 2x barlow if you have one. Again take it outside during the day time and practice.

Need a right angle lens adapter for an Edu Science 102mm Asto Nova telescope. Where can I find one? Or should I return the whole thing?


Reflector style telescopes DO NOT need a diagonal. The eyepiece goes directly into the focuser.

Have you used the telescope with just the eyepiece? That is all you need.

Looking through the telescope, the view is upside down. Also, it's not clear how properly put on the different mm lens.


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images-- it's normal. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one.

Can't see anything and don't know which end is which.


You must have a REFLECTOR style scope with a MIRROR in the bottom. The focuser end is the UP end -- the mirror is on the GROUND end.

You probably have it mounted backwards.

It should look like this:

We receive more complaints on this scope than any other brand. You never said which model you own? Is it a refractor or a reflector style???

Read this page and look at the pictures. Notice a refractor has a lens in the front and the eyepiece in the back.

The reflector has MIRRORS and the focuser end is on the UP end of the telescope-- the mirror is the BOTTOM of the telescope.

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.

Things are upside down looking thru the eyepiece on main telescop


If things are upside down in your telescope, you probably have a reflector telescope.it has curved mirror in the sealed end.take off the cover near the finder and point in the general direction of what you want to see.Make adjustments with the stuff on the mount.If you are viewing terrestrial objects, you will need an inverting lens to correct the image.It is called a Barlow lens and is much longer than the other lenses that come with the telescope.Good Luck

Edu science reflector telescope instructions 600x


This is a small refractor telescope-- they pretty much all work the same-- BUT don't expect to get more than 100 power out of the scope. Yes I know the box said 600 power but it's a lie. In my 8 inch telescope I rarely get above 250 power and my scope is many times larger than the one you have--

Now put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope-- the LARGER the number the LOWER the magnification. During the day time practice focusing on a distant object --- AND line-up the small finder scope on top with the main telescope tube. Look at the top of a distant light or church steple, or telephone pole. Without moving the telescope adjust the small finder scope by loosening and tightening the screws around the tube holding the finder scope-- put the crosshairs on the same spot as the main telescope.

Now you can use the small finder to locate objects in the sky-- the moon should be your first night time target.

When i look through the lens everything is upside down.


It is normal for a telescope to invert the image. There is no up or down in space so for astronomical use it does not matter.

The reflector telescope is not generally used for terrestrial viewing. However, image erectors can be purchased and are inserted before the eyepiece. This would make everything right side up.
