Question about Bushnell Voyager 78-9945 Telescope

1 Answer

Altitude dial The pointer on the altitude dial does not rotate with the up and down movement of the telescope's main barrel or tube. It slips. I had this problem with my first telescope and Bushnell replaced it with a new telescope under the warranty provisions. The replacement telescope has exactly the same problem right out of the box.

The altitude scale on these small telescope are virtually useless and cannot help you find objects in the sky--

Don't worry about it --- just use the scope and a star chart to find things in the sky. A free monthly star chart that you can download is available here:

No laser beam on topcon rlh3c laser level


Take this to a survey/laser repair shop, preferably one that does not charge for estimates.. The laser diodes on the RL-H3C is not serviceable. It requires the lens barrel assembly (or telescope tube unit, i don't remember what they call it in these). It's unreasonably expensive, and will likely be a write off. It may however be the main circuit board, but likely not. Be prepared to replace this unit.

The blower would not shut off, it kept blowing cold air. My repairman came and we saw the silver dial was in the completely upside down position (the 3 pointers were at the top). The pointers were set at...


The dial positioning does not really matter as this is a thermometer of sorts. It is a thermo controlled switch, upon reaching the desired temperature it turns on the blower and upon cool down it shuts off the blower. The dial positioning is not necessarily critical but with him turning it he could have damaged it meaning that instead of registering at say a set 150 degrees it may actually be more than 150 or less than 150 and it will work just the set temperature may be wrong. Confusing isn't it!!

How to use orbitor 2010 telescope


This is a small reflector style telescope on an Altitude Azimuth mount. There are no specific manuals on the internet; however other manufacturers make the same telscope and they are all assembled and used the same way.

Here is Meade's similar telescope:

The tube is identical.

The finderscope for the Bushnel 78-9930 telescope will not align w/ the telescope. The Azimuth adjustment knob bottoms out before the alignment is achieved. Everything is molded one piece. Besides the...


Obviously the mounting for the finderscope is NOT parallel with the tube-- probably the screw holes were not drilled correctly.

This is one of the reasons why we never recommend Tasco or Bushnell telescopes. They are considered "toy" telescopes and most of them are not suitable for Astronomy.

Return it and buy one of these:

OR re-drill the holes so the finder scope is more parallel with the main tube.

ETX 60 altitude doesn´t work, but motor works


You need to tighten the friction lock - it acts as a slip clutch.

The Azimuth Dial isn't firmly attached cause altitude cannot be fixed to an angle


Most of the small telescopes setting circles really cannot be used to find anything--- just not accurate enough---

Try using a star chart -- and star hopping --- to what you want to see.

Thermostat differential on a Bev air ef48-1as


Having to manually defrost an automatic defrost system tells me there is a problem with your defrost timer. Most Beverage-air freezers have a Paragon timer. There are two dials on these timers. An inner and outer dial. On the inner dial is an arrow to indicate the direction of rotation as counter clock wise. On the inner dial is a copper pointer indicating duration of the defrost cycle.

Observe the copper pointer, no movement indicates that the timer is bad.
