Question about Bushnell 675x5 EQ Reflector Telescope
How can I get information on how to set up and use this Telescope?
To the second guy posting the same problem-- you went and bought a cheap department store telescope--- what do you expect for $89-- ???
If you would have spent just a little bit more you could have had one of these--
Don't buy telescopes at Wal Mart or Sears!

It will not be a premium grade telescope, but we all started somewhere. Your main task will be collimation, that is, lining up all the optics to produce a sharp image.
Unlike binoculars, this is not fixed in place, but has adjustments. There is info about it here (same type of scope, different base)
and more here
Bushnell puts out a lot of stuff
and any of their reflector telescope resources should be relevant. This type is also called a Newtonian.

There are a number of books on the subject; "How to make a telescope" by Texerau, "Standard handbook for Telescope Making" and others. Try William Bell for a selection of books.
