The paper is introducing current situation of astronomical telescopes for education which are used in the Mongolian universities. We use few telescopes in Mongolia and these are the Solar Coronagraph telescope (from the Carl Zeiss of Germany), FLI ML09000 CCD camera, АТ-1, APU-75, PAS-3А telescope, Vixen telescopes, Vixen VMC110L, SPICA (D=40mm, 35x telescope kit). The telescopes are not satisfying for academic research. We need to use modern astronomy telescopes for research and high education. There are very limited researchers and organizations for astronomy in Mongolia. They are using telescopes for astrometry and photometry observation, Sun, planets and Moon observations.This paper discusses recent efforts to apply modern astronomical educational telescopes for research capacity in Mongolia with cooperation international organizations. We need to train astronomical specialists who will do research using modern astronomical telescopes. We are open to all scientists, amateurs and students, who want to work with us.
