We have received a 525 telescope(6x25 mm). What will I be able to see with it in regard to mars,the moon,or venus,jupiter.Any response is appreciated.

A 6'' you mean? A 6'' is pretty okay. The moon is great through even small apertures. Jupiter should be good with noticeable belts and perhaps a red spot. Venus and Mars aren't all the featureful these days, but they'll be more than just a point.

When you say "525" is that the magnifcation they list on the box?

Almost any scope should give you views of Jupiter/Venus/Moon. They just might not make it convenient to view, nor will the image be stupendous if the scope is small or poorly made.

It might help if you gave a brand name and model.

6x25 sounds like a really small finder scope.
