Re: Bushnell 78-9945

Take it back to the store and get a refund then buy your son this telescope--

Do not buy Tasco, Bushnell, Jupiter, Baytronic or any other department store junk telescope.

Sorry but it costs at least $200 to get a small good telescope-- and the prices go up from there. Also run away from any telescope that has pretty color pictures on the box taken by the Hubble Space Telescope-- or that has the POWER listed on the box (something like 550x) --- magnification is not important...... most of us us less than 100 power even in LARGE 8-10 inch telescopes costing thousands of dollars.

I can't see anything at night

Objects in the sky are VERY TINY- no larger than the tip of your finger held at arm's length! You must be pointed directly at them to see them. Buy several good astronomy books like- "Turn Left at Orion", or "Nightwatch".

Join a local astronomy club and the members will help you FIND objects in the night sky.

Wrong Date on Sky Tour

It does NOT keep time! You enter the time AFTER you turn it on.
