How to attach my camera to my Voyager 78-9440

Looking at the information on the camera it does not look like the lens can be detached from the camera body and Bushnell only makes a camera adapter for their spotting scopes so unfortunately you seem to be out of luck.
If you wish to pursue astrophotography you should consider a higher quality scope. In the mean time you could use the camera in a smart phone to take pictures although that can be a little tricky.

Hello, I have a celestron c9,25. I adjust a nikon D3100 with T-Ring and Adapter to my telescope. Firstly I focus to moon, using an eyepiece, then I removed the eyepiece and adjusted the Nikon. The...

Because the camera has a different focus point from the eyepiece. TURN the focus knob until the camera comes into focus. OR you can buy a "focus ring" for the eyepiece which attaches to the barrel of the eyepiece and is adjustable-- then focus with the camera FIRST and then insert the eyepiece with the ring on it and lift it UP until the image comes to focus-- then tighten the ring. NOW you can use that eyepiece to roughly focus the camera.

On my celestron 100mm regal spotting scope i can't get the locking collar to open where the eyepiece slides into.

This is a VERY expensive spotting scope. I would contact Celestron directly and seek a repair.

My web cam is not compatible it is made by dany

Hi. I share your frustration as I had the same situation with a very powerful and expensive bird spotting scope. I finally decided to get a new webcam which was compatible. For just a few dollars I ended my search and my frustration. J.

Could you tell me if a National PE2057 flash gun will work with a pentex sp500 camera

I do NOT recommend this telescope. The eyepieces are plastic, the scope is on a small shaky tripod.

Stop looking at $69 telescopes. Read my TIPS on my profile page.

You will be frustrated with this scope, and it will quickly wind up in a closet or for sale on

No image

Turn the scope backwards and point the tail towards the daylight sky. My guess is you will see light. If you see a fish eye like view of the world then point the scope at a distant scene and wait until night. Sometime trying to use too much magnifation makes it hard to find and focus on night time objects.

If the fish eyeview looks twisted then my guess would be a lens element has become un mounted. Most likely it will be in the eyepiece but if this is a spotting scope it could be in the image erector lens bundle. I had a Vvitar that dropped a bundle in the zoom eyepiece when the zoom was twisted too far. The little screw that held the bundle in aligment was sheared off and had to be replaced. Obtain the small screws from a camera store.

Loose dirt on mirror Meade Lx6

Nope, the dust is on the webcam sensor. The telescope mirror is too far away to influence the image. Most modified cameras have no window to keep dust off the sensor's cover. A camera lens cleaning brush works fine. Also, some cameras have 'hot pixels' that are defects in the sensor, and are permanent.
