Question about Bushnell NorthStar 78-8831 (525 x 76mm) Telescope
Just got a 78-8831 and set it up according to instructions. After inserting lens into eyepiece, I can't see anything at all. Dont worry, I've removed the front cap from the the main telescope.
Something leads to believe I'm either missing something real fundamental or my telescope is broken. Please help
Start by adjusting the focus draw tube all the way in, then back a little bit. In the day time indoors, remove the lens from the draw tube. Look into to the draw tube. You should be able to see your eye centered in the mirror. If you cannot see your eye at all, either the primary is tipped drastically or the secondary mirror is way out of adjustment. In that event I would return this scope to where you got it.
