SOURCE: red dot finder scope

Simple-- you can also do this during the day on an object at least 100 yards away-- but at night; get the moon centered in the eyepiece and without moving the telescope center the red dot on the moon. This will get you almost aligned-- then put a bright star in the eyepiece and readjust the red dot to center the star.

They are very simple-- they project a tiny "red dot" like a gun sight when you look through them. You line them up with your telescope and use them to quickly aim the telescope.

SOURCE: Have jus t got the Bushnell 450 and the finder

Many finders need to be FOCUSED! Try turning one of the ends of the finder scope --- to focus the image.

SOURCE: i can not focus the finder scope

Most finders focus by either turning the lens, or the eyepiece portion of the finder. Look through the eyepiece at a distant object and try turning one or the other as described above.

The battery for the red dot finder scope on my Bushneel 78-9669 scope appears to be dead.\r\nHow do I remove the dead one ? What is the button battery number for a new one? Thanks.......Mike


Most red dot finders use a small watch style battery-- there will either be a compartment underneath and or something that opens on the side that contains the watch battery.

How do you turn on the red dot finder-scope?


Make sure it has a new battery inside. Then there should be a "dial" or a switch that turns it on. The battery is probably dead. You can see the tiny red light -- light up-- if you look in the front of the finder.

The Red Dot finde scope on my 78-8831 doesn't look like depicted in the user manual for this telescope. It looks like on the picture for 78-8840. Oh, by the way, the user manual is just about the worst...


Bushnell is NOT known for their quality telescopes. Sorry.

The red dot finder must be aligned with the main tube, you can do this during the daytime.

Focus on a distant object using the telescope like the top of a telephone pole. Without moving the telescope, adjust the red dot so it falls on the exact same object.
