Question about Bushnell NorthStar 78-8890 (300 x 90mm) Telescope

Bushnell 78-8890 Power On

I feel like an idiot. I bought a Bushnell 78-8890 Nothstar GoTo. I put it together, simple. I believed I followed every step. It would not turn on!!! I went and bought new battery, still no power. Extremely frustrated!!!

    I had the exact same thing happen with the North Star 78-8890. I felt like a dummy as well. I had to send it back. The second one that was shipped to me seemed to be working great until I tried the motorized control keypad. The telescope won't motorize up. It will motorize left and right and down but not up. So now I am getting ready to send it back as well. This is really frustrating me.
