SOURCE: 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..

Not worth repairing-- a new focuser for your telescope would cost as much or more than the telescope-- unless you can find a discarded telescope of the same model..... for parts.

SOURCE: 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.

Missing some parts on a telescope i purchased from a yard sale. where can i buy parts?

You cannot! That is one of the worst telescopes you can possibly have and use. It is being sold by Toys R Us. We receive more complaints on that brand than any other.

Your only source for parts will be a local well stocked hardware store. The scope you bought will do nothing but frustrate you.

Next time buy one of these:

Well that's about all it is worth! You bought a toy telescope of about 60mm not much larger than a pair of 10x50mm binoculars which would have been better for astronomy.

You can buy .965 eyepieces on Ebay at Telescope Warehouse. They are almost as much as you paid for the telescope. This is a 2inch scope so your maximum possible magnification in perfect conditions and with perfect optics will be about 100 power. (50 times aperture).

Read my TIPS on my profile page. Next time buy one of these in at least a 6 inch or 8 inch size.

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.

The moon should be your first target at night.

You most likely have eyepieces that have a 1.25" diameter but your telescope only accepts eyepieces with a .965" diameter. You can measure the diameter of the eyepiece barrel to confirm it.

There are two solutions to this problem. One is to purchase .965" eyepieces. They tend to be not as good of quality as 1.25" ones. However, you can find some here:

The less expensive way is to get a 1.25" to .965" adapter. You can find one of those here: If that link is too long go to and look it up.

One thing to note when using an adapter is that sometimes it may not allow the eyepieces to come into focus since it adds a little length to the telescope. This varies by telescope.

Good luck!

Upside down images

ALL astronomical telescopes show upside down images it is normal. Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the diagonal. Do NOT use the 2x barlow it is too much magnification for that small aperture telescope.

Eyepieces not fitting into 90-degree penta mirror

Here's the link to the user manual if you need it; Check the bottom of page 3, I think it answers your question - eyepieces should insert directly into the penta mirror. check page 9 for a diagram showing the whole assembly. If it turns out you have the wrong eyepieces, you can contact bushnell's spares department on; Hope this helps, please ask again if you need more info :)
