That is a REFLECTOR style telescope. Just go to Meade's web site and download a REFLECTOR manual that is similar to your telescope. They all work the same way.

I have a Bushnell Telescope model # AG-78-4306 I need the part that attaches the tripod to the telescope

Telescopes and other things designed to fit on a tripod usually have a female thread and the attaching screw is part of the tripod.

If there is no female thread it isn't designed to fit on a tripod and an adaptor will be required. If it is available it will have to be sourced from the manufacturer or an optic specialist.

If it was mine I would have a brief look through Amazon/ebay and if no luck I would fabricate something myself.

Hello, I have Bushnell Northstar 78-8831 telescope which I got from United States (New York) last year. Since the very first day, I am not able to get the option of "Align Start 1" After...

This can be caused by many things-- such as dirt or grease on the encoders inside or a slipping clutch. I know you just bought this telescope, but Bushnell is NOT KNOWN for having quality telescopes.

To get the goto to work everything must be according to the manual.

The tripod needs to be perfectly level-- time, date, and site must be accurate, and the alignment objects must each be centered in the eyepiece. Sounds like you also have electronic issues with the hand controller. Only Bushnell can repair this scope.

I recently bought a used bushnell reflector telescope that is missing a tripod mounting bracket and screw, can you please tell me where i can find one?

You cannot find parts for that very low cost telescope. You can buy a tripod but the cost will probably be more than you paid for the scope.

Here are tripods:

Next time do not waste your money on these types of telescopes. Instead save up and buy something like this:

Cannot see through the lens of a 565 bushnell telescope

Did you remove the lens cap.

This is a simple refractor telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. Read my TIPS on my profile page.

What is the second jack on the hand controler for?

I have been watching your question for several days now. No one has answered--- probably because the manual does NOT show a second port on the hand controller.

I would call the service and warranty web site number and ask them.

I got a telescope for bushnell it has the skytour hand set with it but i cant get it to give me the right area for the plants i live in canada

Do you have the manual? Most GOTO scopes have an alignment procedure that must be followed. For example_

Train the drives

Level the tripod

Set telescope into the "home" position

Align and center on two stars.

Here is the web site where you can find all the manuals and also get customer service.

I cant see anything in my telescope i never have been able to and it also moves alot down it the adjustment pane it is the bushnell 78-9930

Shaky tripod is why you never buy this telescope brand.

Put the eyepice with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2xbarlow if you have one. Go outside duringg the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.
