First here are the manuals for all the Bushnell telescopes-- which you need to read cover to cover--

http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html

Now put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope-- this will give you the LOWEST magnification. Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant land object-- the moon should be your first target at night.

I need manual for my bushnell refractor telescope.i can not see anything.


All of Bushnell's manuals are on this web site:

http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html

Look down the page for your telescope. The manual will NOT tell you how to use the telescope. It is only assembly instructions. Take the scope out in the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Just put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the focuser. Turn the focus knob to the right and or left until you get a sharp image on a distant object during the day time.

We can not see anything out of the telescope only on the guide can we see anything


This is a reflector style telescope with a MIRROR in the bottom. The focuser end is pointed UP like in the picture above.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

I have the 30 lens for my telescope, and I can't seem to get it to focus on anything.I see light when i aim it at the daytime sky, but that is it.


If the eyepiece will not come to focus even by moving the focuser completely inward and completely outward. Try aiming it at a distant land object during the day time.

The end with the focuser is point UP, the big mirror is on the bottom. Remove the cap, put the eyepiece in that has the largest number written on it and practice focusing on a distant object during the daytime.

Can not see anything thru the lens


Put the lowest power eyepiece into the telescope-- that's the one with the LARGEST number on it--

Take the scope outside and point it at a distant object over 100 yards away. Then practice focusing the telescope-- turn the knob slowly.
