people with 1 and 2 star comments for not being able to focus obviously dont know how to focus a telescope or anything about focal lengths. i found this one of the easiest telescopes to focus ive ever used and i have some other computerized auto focusing telescopes that i still have to adjust. the key is to move the focus knob very slowly because noobs go quickly they miss that key focus spot and then complain that it doesnt work right.with a 45 degree eue piece everything is going to be mirrored.....what do you expect?

This piece of junk is the biggest waste of money do not even consider buying this telescope. The plastic is total junk, over all quality is so diappointing. This was a Chrstmas present for our 7 year old and wow was this a joke. The flimsy legs broke, all you can see is bright blobs, wish we would have saved our money and put it towards a higher quality telescope. TRUST ME DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE...

    Comments about Toys 'R' Us Edu Science Core 60mm Refractor Telescope:

    The quality wasn't the best. We could see things more clearly throught a pair of binoculars. We ended up having to return it because the 4mm lense was not working.

    A Huge Disappointment

    By Science Dad

    from Santa Clarita, CA

    About Me Avid Adventurer

    Pros

    • Cheap

    Cons

    • Poorly Made
    • Unstable

    Best Uses

    • Doorstop

    Comments about Toys 'R' Us Edu Science Core 60mm Refractor Telescope:

    Was hoping to introduce my young daughter to astronomy with a decent, but "expendable" telescope. This telescope is so cheaply made that it was impossible to use. The plastic pieces used to lock it into position don't hold, so you have to continually readjust and refocus. That kind of takes the magic out of the moment.

    I will never buy another Edu Science product.

    Unless you're trying to turn your kids off to science, spend a few extra dollars and buy a quality product. I've learned my lesson.

      JUNK! JUNK! JUNK!

      By Kimmie B

      from Paris, OH

      Comments about Toys 'R' Us Edu Science Core 60mm Refractor Telescope:

      As my title states this thing is a piece of junk. Cheaply made, can't view anything through the lens. Thought it would be a great gift for my 8yr. old who has been asking for a telescope, boy were we wrong. Probably could have gotten the same results if we would have purchased the $20 version. Big waste of money and lots of frustration for me and my child.

            Comments about Toys 'R' Us Edu Science Core 60mm Refractor Telescope:

            [$]. Might as well go to a 99 cents store, buy a Snapple Bottle and look through it. If you think I'm exaggerating, I guarantee it will look identical if not better. As a long time consumer I am pleased with previous purchases and Toys R us customer service has been helpful therefore by no means am I somehow disgruntled by another issue. What I am is amazed how this product is still on the store shelves. I don't know how anyone could have ever had a positive experience with this product. I am more than capable to read directions, put several parts together and focus on large objects as in the moon. It's a Blurry Mess ! I was previously warned about this product, but like most people I needed to see for myself. What a major major major but expected disappointment. If I could give this product 0 stars I would. Someone in product placement was sleeping on the job that day.
