Bushnell 114mm reflector telescope, can't see a thing
Sister gave me a USED Bushnell 114mm Reflector Telescope for Christmas and said it works; however, I can't see anything out of the thing. It came with a manual and we hooked up the remote computer controller and it moved around to see the moon. Cool! However when I put my eye up to the eyepiece there was just darkness.

Re: 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.

No matter what the box says, 110x is the maximum power for a 60mm objective lens. The tripod is weak so stability is a problem. Fair for lunar observation and fair to poor for planetary viewing. Go spend some money on a decent telescope A Celestron 114mm reflector is only about $150
