Question about Bushnell Voyager 78-9470 (470 x 60mm) Telescope
I recently bought a 4.5 inch reflector telescope. I put it all together with the handy visual guide and inside I was able to see through it, though the power seemed low, as objects looked slightly magnified. But outside, I can only see blackness. I've tried it several different times now, so it's not a case of something obvious like removing a cap, but I can't figure it out! I found a page on optical alignment that I'm going to try out, but I'd appreciate if anyone has an inkling of what I 'm missing. My son was just given a telescope for xmas and even though I could focus it in daylight it was useless on a clear night. I could even see the milky way with the naked eye, but the minute we tried the scope - nothing. What a disappointment! The lens caps were off and I was using the lowest magnification - 20mm. . . HELP!
Try pointing it at the moon first-- with the 20mm and practice focusing it. The moon is up just after dark right now.
