    We just bought our Bushnell 3" Reflector Telescope and we are having problems focusing. Could it be the lens?

You are not in focus--- during the day try to focus on a distant object at least 100 yards away-- using the lowest magnification eyepiece, this is the one with the largest number written on it. DO NOT use the barlow which multiplies the magnification by 2 times!

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object like a building or telephone pole.

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.
