    I am missing the finder scope on the 78-9512

    I dropped the eyepiece for my Bushnell 78-9512 and cracked the mirror. Where might I get a replacement (eyepiece or mirror)?

    Same here. Picked up at a white elephant and it's missing the eyepiece. Can anyone help? Can't seem to pinpoint where to buy one online either.
    Thanks!

I CANT SEE OUT OF THE TELESCOPE AT ALL


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 78-9003 telescope purchased at yard sale with no eyepiece. Where can I purchase one that will fit? It talks about a .965 inch eyepiece.


.965 eyepieces are readily available on ebay. A meade 25mm MA (modified achromat) is about $10 plus shipping This will give you 700mm/25mm= 28x power. Avoid any eyepiece marked with a H (Huygens) as they have terrible field of view.
.965 is not a popular size anymore and Bushnell does not make very good telescopes. Don't get frustrated, if you are still interested, buy a Meade, Celestron, Orion quality telescope.

Completed setup, can't see anything through eyepiece.


I answered your question already-- TURN THE SCOPE around you have it mounted backwards! The eyepiece end is pointed UP. Like the picture above in your question.

Can't see anything through eyepiece.


The FOCUSER end should be pointed UP the mirror end is toward the ground. Turn the scope around and put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

I can't see anything through the Main Telescopic Tube


Did you take the lens cap off?

You have a small 60mm refractor style telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow which you might have that doubles the magnification of the eyepiece. Your scope is too small to use the barlow. Remember most binoculars are 7x50mm. So your aperture is not much bigger than a pair of binoculars.

Now go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

Can se through finderscope but nothing through eyepiece


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. During the daytime practice focusing on a distant object. The moon should be your first target at night.

If this is a reflector telescope, the FOCUSER end is pointed toward the sky. The mirror is on the bottom of the tube.

I really do not know how to use it. It's rather awkward to look through the lens. What does the red dot finderscope really do?


1. Please read menual proper.You can see live demo through company website also.
2. Start with lower resolution eyepiece.For thet you see the meximum number on eyepice.Than you start first to see moon.Because mon is a brightest obect of the sky 7 easy to find.than you go planet etc.
3.Finderscope is a taegt shooter.Please switch of finderscope.You can see two red dot in the finderscope. Than you aline the object ine sky with two red dot. Move the telescope up to in line(Obeject which you want to see and two red dot).
Now you can see in the eyepice to megnifing image of object.

Garage sale purchase


This is a small telescope.You will get limited views with this scope.However you will be able to see the craters on the moon and the rings of saturn.Although they will not have any detail.You will be able to use it as a terestrial scope.For that it is ideal.You will need an erecting lens to turn the view right side up.You need atleast 1 eyepiece,finderscope,erecting lens(for terestrial views)and maybe a barlow lens.Keep in mind it is not magnification you are looking for it is the ability to gather light and a 50mm is not going to gather much.the bigger the objective lens the more light it will gather.Think of animals that come out at night,their eyes are bigger than those that are out in day light.Because the bigger the lens the more light it gathers,so magnification only plays a part if you can see the target with your light gathering ability.Because just like 1000x0 is 0 the same gos for telescopes.1000xblack is black..
