Did you set it up according to the provided instructions?
Do you have a low power eyepiece inserted at the viewing end?
Have you aimed the telescope at the moon as a basic test of
visibility?
If your telescope is not properly aimed at the target (a star or a planet, or other object in the night sky) then you will see nothing.
If the power of your eyepiece is too large and your telescope aim is
not "dead on", then you will see nothing.
Have you tried using the scope in the daytime? Do you see anything?
Aim at a specific object, or section of an object, like the top of a lamp-post about a block or two away, and see if you can focus on
it the eyepiece.
You really need someone at your side who has experience in using
astronomical telescopes. That would be the quickest way to solve
any problems you have.
Unless your question is very specific, and unless you provide as
much detail as possible about your problem, it will be difficult for
anyone to provide you with speecific answers that will help you
solve your problem.
joy,
walt

Can not see thru telescope.


Yes it will focus --- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the scope. DO NOT use the 2x or 3x barlow.

Practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away during the day. The moon should be your first night time target.

Practice focusing during the day on a distant object at least 100 yards away-- use the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it-- and DO NOT use any 2x or 3x barlow to multiple the power.

Sky objects are VERY small the scope must be pointed directly at them--- try for the moon first --- to learn how to focus properly. Just pointing it toward the sky will not do you any good.

Can't see anything through the lens?


Put the diagonal into the telescope-- then put the eyepiece that has the LARGEST number written on it. This is the lowest magnification. DO NOT USE THE BARLOW 2x multiplier !!

Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. The moon should be the first night time target you try to see.

Can't get the telescope to focus on anything.


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.

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.

Is it a Webley or a Eley Colt .455? How to tell if the cylinder bore has been modified to accept Colt 45 or other ammunition. Obvious the barrel (8" smooth bore) and sights were replaced Please help an ole man out that happens to know "Nothing" about Colt Double Action Revolvers... At 66 I guess it's never to late to own a Colt! Is it a Webly or Eley .455 ? and How can I tell if it's been reworked to accept Colt 45 ammunition? As many details as I have are below. Any body know just what I have here? I think I have a 1914?? British .455 Colt New Service Revolver. Has some standard factory Colt proof marks along with British proof marks. Colt logo above the grips on the rear left side of frame, VP inside a triangle on the front left side of trigger guard, and a #3 on the rear of trigger guard same side. Has had the orig. barrel replaced with a stainless steel 8" smooth bore pinned barrel. British proof marks on 3 different places on the revolver. On the breech area, the rear of the cylinder, and inspection and acceptance markings On the left rear of the frame (just below the hammer). Broad arrow government acceptance mark on top. Under that is a Crown Under that is F9 E Bone grips that look like they are orig. also. A large #7 is stamped "under" the serial number at the crane too, and the grips are also marked with the #7 in pencil underneath on both grips. On the left side of the frame under the grips is stamped the capital letter "E", so I know originally it was chambered .455. Highly polished mirror like blue finish on the original frame. Has a lanyard swivel on the bottom of the frame and has "No markings, lettering or numbers on the frame"by the lanyard swivel. Any Help/Feedback is Greatly Appreciated Thanks in Advance!
