Question about Edu-Science (10166) Telescope

1 Answer

Hello. My daughter received the 120mm Astro-Nova 525x telescope as a gift. There was an instruction paper for putting it together which I did. It also had the star chart and the "Getting the Most From Your New Telescope" DVD which did not work at all and looking over the parts I realized the CyberSky Interactive CD-ROM was missing. So, I have no idea how to use the telescope at all. It was purchased at Toy R Us but they weren't any help except to say to contact you directly. We have been unable to use it for months and right now since Jupiter is visible in the night sky and won't be for another 25 years, we want to learn how to work this telescope and soon! Could you please send me the DVD and CD-ROM, otherwise the purchase of this telescope was a complete waste of money for my mother and that saddens me, not to mention my daughter has not been able to use it. Thank you for your help.

I would be surprised if ToysRus told you to contact FixYa. This is an advice site largely manned by volunteers, with no connection to ToysRus or Edu-Science. I would suggest that you contact Edu-Science to get the missing CD, or insist that ToysRus refund for the defective (missing parts) item they have sold you.

Don't worry about Jupiter. It is not going to disappear. I have been watching it for decades and it is almost always up there.

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 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:

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!

Bushnell Deep Space Series 525x 78-9500 We didn't assemble when we received as a gift a couple of years ago and now realize that the assembly instructions were left out of box. We assembled telescope but...


The erecting prism can be used for both terrestrial and star gazing-- put it innto the scope first.

The 3x barlow probably will NOT be very useful... it triples the power of any eyepiece. Your small scope cannot go much over 100 power-- before the image degrades.

Put the eyepiece with the BIGGEST number written on it into the erecting prism which you previously stuck into the scope... now go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

The bigger the number on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.
