I have a Bushnell Voyager telescope and can't see anything thru it at night!

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
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.

You will need top take it to someone you specializes in telescopes and can get you the right part and install it correctly, Telescopes are not everyday items you can get parts for anywear. Try a scientific store and ask around, they may know somewhere to take it.

2.5x8 variable leupold loses focus when change power

The only reason a variable power Leupold scope should lose focus when changing power is that the object you are viewing is too close to view on a high magnification. Try again while viewing something 50 yards/meters away, and if it still loses focus, then it probably needs repair.

Leupold scopes aren't user-servicable, and you wouldn't want to try to take it apart yourself, but that's okay, because Leupold has one of the best reputations among optics manufacturers for standing behind their products. If there's a problem, you can call their customer service department at 1-800-538-7653, or submit a request on their online form here:

Either way, don't give up on it. Leupolds hold their value, and you could probably even sell a problem scope to someone who is willing to send it in for repair.

Good luck!

Can you tell me if Model 78-1518 is suitable for astronomical use, does it mean images will be upside down? It is for someone just starting to do a bit of star gazing. Is this model a reflector or a...

This is a spotting scope, mostly used in conjunction with firearms on the firing range or maybe hunting. It is a terrestrial refractor scope and shows erect images (the right way up). It isn't really ideal for astronomy.

One would generally want a larger diameter objective and a simpler eyepiece system (not a zoom) for stargazing. Some people start astronomy with a pair of binoculars (7x50), which would be as good or better than this for the purpose. Eventually you will want to see faint objects which requires a larger objective (main lens or mirror) to gather enough light and give good resolution. The upside down thing doesn't matter when looking at stars.

How many ft lb of torque for scope rings

A typical torque setting for scope bases (on a steel reciever) is 30 in/lbs. The rings (steel) need 15-20 in/lbs.

For a aluminum receiver and/or rings, 15-20 in lbs is about max. I use 10 in/lbs with blue Locktite for aluminum receivers and rings.

Need pictorial to reassemble crosman m1 air gun

zoom out to the minimum or mid of your scopes capabilities depending on the range you will be shooting from most frequently. then get ready to lay out some pellets. fire in groups of three. and walk tour adjustment knobs into your crosshairs. under your dial caps or mabey on the outsode you'll find L--> and up--> markings with arrows indicating how to turn it to make your adjustments tight. great hunting. but start on a windless day. lol not too common in WY
