Question about Edu-Science (10166) Telescope

1 Answer

My daughter received a 60MM Star-Tracker II Telescope (250X Power) from Santa for Christmas. It is missing the Finderscope Mount. Our local store has no more of these telescopes. I would like to purchase this piece but cannot locate a website in which to find the cost, etc.

I, also, coudn't find this part, or any replacement parts on the net. Unfortunately, it's the store's option to replace or refund your money. I would do that if they won't help you locate another one to swap out. You might check the instructions that came with the unit and see if they have a support number.
Other than that, get your money back and purchase another.
Sorry there's no better news, and good luck.

I cant view anything from the finderscope in relation to the telescope


They must be lined up, and if you are using a higher power eyepiece, this must be more precise as your field of view is smaller.
There will be some type of adjustment on the finderscope, probably 3 thumbscrews around the holder tube.

Put in a low power eyepiece and point the scope at a local feature such as a streetlight or distant building. Get this centered in the eyepiece. Then adjust the finder only so the feature is centered in the finder as well.

Put in a higher power eyepiece and center the feature again in the telescope EP, and readjust the finder centering by itself, if needed.

Then choose a bright star and by moving the scope mount, place this in the center of the finder. Check if the star is properly centered in the EP as well and if not, move the scope mount until it is. Then finally adjust the finder centering by itself.

I can't see anything out of the large scope


Use the 20mm to view an object (building, tree etc.) far away during the daytime. Align the finderscope to the object.
To view the moon, leave the scope out to equalize the temperature for at least 1/2 hour. Use the 20mm and no barlow. Point the scope towards the moon by sighting along the barrel of the scope, then use the finder to zero in on the moon. You may then switch to the 4mm eyepiece. for a more magnified view of the moon. You will have to keep moving the telescope because of the earth's rotation. The higher the magnification, the more you will have to adjust the scope. Because of the cheap finderscope, finding the planets will be difficult. Best to always sight down the length of the scope to get you close. The planets will be small and indistinct.
This is not a astronomical telescope! May be used for views of the moon but the cheap mount is not suitable for other planets. Max power would be 225x NOT 420x as advertised. The erecting prism is for terrestrial use only.
Nothing discourages an amateur astronomer more than a toy store telescope. My advise would be to use this scope for nature watching and go buy a good telescope (Meade, Celestron, Orion etc.). Even Those 60mm refractors are superior to this! A descent scope would cost a minimum of $200

I just bought a 60mm star tracker II. The eye pieces do not secure into the telescope. THe little screw that should secure the eyepiece just pops out when you try to tighten it in to secure the eyepiece....


No, it means the focuser set-screws are broken. Hate to tell you but we receive the most complaints from THAT telescope brand, which is being sold by Toys R Us. It is TERRIBLE. I would suggest you return it to the store and never buy another telescope from a toy store, or Wal Mart, or Craigslist. Most of the scopes sold there are junk- toy telescopes.

The scope you bought is NOT suitable for Astronomy. Next time buy one of these:

Yes, there is already a link posted on Fixya-

This appears to be a small 60mm refractor style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to use it properly. Beginners should never buy an EQ mounted telescope as their first telescope.

However I have instructions on aligning the mount on the star Polaris on my profile page in the TIPS section. Read those instructions, and find a local Astronomy club. The members can help you with that telescope.

I can't see anything through the Main Telescopic Tube


Did you take the lens cap off?

You have a small 60mm refractor style telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow which you might have that doubles the magnification of the eyepiece. Your scope is too small to use the barlow. Remember most binoculars are 7x50mm. So your aperture is not much bigger than a pair of binoculars.

Now go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

Need a part telescope mount for a 60mm star-tracker II telescope


You will not be able to find parts-- for regular screws and bolts your local well stocked hardware store should have what you need -- for telescope accessories look at this website --
