Very had to find a manual for these small telescopes--

Meade telescopes a large manufacturer, maintains a web site with manuals for all of their telescopes. Look through the ones on this web site and download the manual that most closely matches your telescope.

You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade maintains a web site for their telescope manuals. Look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

SOURCE: Science Tech 262 telescope image problems.

TOO much magnification! Hate to tell you but the MAXIMUM magnification for any telescope (all things being perfect-- like optics, and sky conditions) is 50 times aperture. So max for you is about 125 power.

Normally only about 30-40 times aperture is possible. So about 90 power is your normal max magnification.

We see this every Christmas. People buy scopes that say 275 power or 500 power on the outside of the box. It's a LIE!

Even in my 8 inch LX90 I rarely go above 200 power, and only when the sky is clear and very stable. Use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it which will be your lowest magnification.

You will not find a manual for that telescope which is sold by Toys R Us. However Meade and Bushnell both maintain web sites with all of their telescope manuals--- here:

http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html Meade manuals

http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html Bushnell

Look around the web sites under the REFRACTOR heading for one that is similar to your telescope. They all assemble and are used the same way.

How can I order a tripod for the edu science astrolon 525?


You cannot -- parts are not available for this small imported telescope. You might be able to find a regular photo camera tripod that would work.

Hope this helps.
Here is a link to an item being listed on ebay called a equatorial mount. That is the term for a precision telescope mount. This may be much more that what you need, but the price is tempting.
Take a look.

Missing the finderscope on an edu-science 525 power


Don't bother putting a finder scope on this. It is not worth it.Spend the money for a Meade or Celestron. Both have relatively inexpensive starter scopes.
Below is a good scope from Orion for under $100

525 telescope but no instructions


No one will have a manual for this telescope, However here is a picture:
http://www.amazon.com/Elenco-Astrolon-525x-Refractor-Telescope/dp/B0019MYVMQ

This is a very simple refractor on an alt az mount. Sure wish you had NOT bought this "department store" telescope. It will be shaky and has a very small aperture. Read my TIPS on my profile page to find out how to improve a department store telescope.

I was given an edu science astrolon 525 power telescope but am missing two parts: the finderscope and the diagonal. Are there replacement parts for this telescope available?


You can buy a diagonal and finder-scope from many on-line retailers. You may need a .965 inch diagonal. Measure the hole in the back end of the telescope.

Diagonals are made in 3 sizes.... .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes.

Here are two retailers-

Instruction manual for the astrolon telescope 525


You are about the 10th person to ask for this. These are being sold at Toys R Us and the "toy" really applies to this scope. If you can return it and buy this telescope for your child.
http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=09804

and no you cannot buy a usable scope for less than $200. No manual exists for your telescope, however Meade maintains a web site of manuals for all their telescopes. Look under the REFRACTOR heading on the below web site for one similar to your telescope. They all assemble about the same way, and Meade includes a section in the back of all manuals on how to use the telescope.

This one is similar to your telescope.

I'M MISSING THE ENTIRE EYE PIECE ASSEMBLY FOR 525 POWER TELESCOPE


You will NOT get 525 power from that small telescope. Yes I know the box said that but it was a lie.

An eyepiece might cost as much as you paid for the entire telescope. NEVER buy a telescope that advertises magnification on the outside of the box.

Here are some eyepieces:
