Objects in the sky are very tiny -- smaller than the tip of your finger held at arm's length.

Read my tips on my profile page-- The moon should be your first target at night, since it is llarge and easy to find.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the scope and try again. Contact Bushnell directly for repairs:

It is NOT in focus.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. Turn the focusing knob until you get a sharp image in the eyepiece.

Everything is upside down on side eye piece. When viewing through the scope that's on the side of the telescope itself, everything is upside down. No matter which way it is turned, the same problem exists.


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's completely normal. Nothing is wrong with the scope. For terrestril viewing you can buy an "erecting prism diagonal" which will turn the images right side up.

Can't see object with 6450 Telescope


You cannot use high power in those small telescopes. Only use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

I know the box said 600 power--- it was a complete LIE! The maximum magnification is 50 times aperture. You probably have something like a 2 inch lens. So 100 power is the maximum usable power.

Next time buy a telescope similar to this one:

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE THE 2x or 3X barlow.

Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

Bushnell 114mm reflector telescope, can't see a thing


Probably NOT actually pointed directly at the moon-- you should have moved it around a little -- the moon was probably just outside the field of view through the eyepiece. ........................ telescope must be pointed DIRECTLY at the sky object-- also use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it=== this gives the LOWEST magnification..... and a slightly wider field of view.

CELESTRON 127EQ faulty magnification


It won't increase viewing power by hundreds of time but it should be able to show you a close up view of the moon and planets where they look closer (or with the moon, parts of it look closer). When you say it looks further away, something is quite wrong as you know. It sounds like the eye piece is backwards in the mount? Can't imagine what else would make it smaller. Also can't imagine you could even get it in backwards. I have a scope by Meade that is essentially the same Newtonian design. Best of luck.

Cannot see anything out of main telescope


Do NOT use the barlow lens-- put the lowest magnification eyepiece into the scope-- practice focusing on the moon -- turn the focus knob slowly in and out until you get a sharp image.

Telescopes only show an area of sky about 1 degree wide or LESS--- this is about the size of the TIP of your finger held at arms length................ your scope is best used at low magnification.

Upside down images


ALL astronomical telescopes show upside down images it is normal. Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the diagonal. Do NOT use the 2x barlow it is too much magnification for that small aperture telescope.
