How to use Bushnell Telescope

We purchased the above telescope from Sears Canada. We have put it together as per the instructions. There are no instructions on how to use it.
We would like some kind of guide as to how the lenses work, how we put them together, where they go, etc. We need instructions on how to use the telescope for beginners.

    I posted this problem 12/25/07 You have not answered my problem, instead you have asked me to subscribe to your program. My understanding was I could ask questions and receive solutions free. I am beginning to think you post this "Free" program to people and then ask them to pay a subscription to get their questions answered.

I hope this is not too late.
About the only way to get an answer would be in person, one on one.
Check and see if there any astronomy clubs or groups in your area. if so then drop them an e-mail telling them what your problem is and ask when their next observing session is.
Take what you have with you and find out how to use it.
In lieu of or in addition, Join an online astro group such as Cloudy Nights and have a 2 way discussion with people have been through it themselves.
Best to all.

Just bought a Bushnell telescope 78-4501 - set it up as per the instructions. I can see objects light etc... through the object finder or view finder but I see nothing through the telescope not even...

This is not a real telescope, it is a toy. You will be lucky to see anything with the 20mm lens only. the rest are junk. The telescope needs to be collimated (see your manual) and the finder aligned with the telescope. Align the finder with the scope during the day, although this model was known for poor mounting on the finderscope and will become un-aligned easily.

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.
