Question about Bushnell Voyager 78-9440 (440 x 12.5mm) Telescope

Value of Bushnell Voyager 789440

Saw this scope in a flea market and came home to research it. If it has all the parts as shown in the on-line manual what would be a reasonable price. I think they had $40 on it.

Re: Value of Bushnell Voyager 789440

DO NOT buy any Bushnell, Tasco, Edu Scientific, or Galileo telescope-- these are all toy telescopes. We call them department store telescopes.

Look at this type of telescope as your first one: and you CANNOT buy a useable telescope for less than about $200. It's on craigslist or Ebay because some parent bought it for a child who used it two times and since it was not actually easily useable gave it up.

How to attach my camera to my Voyager 78-9440

Looking at the information on the camera it does not look like the lens can be detached from the camera body and Bushnell only makes a camera adapter for their spotting scopes so unfortunately you seem to be out of luck.
If you wish to pursue astrophotography you should consider a higher quality scope. In the mean time you could use the camera in a smart phone to take pictures although that can be a little tricky.

Many on line retailers sell eyepieces. They come in three sizes, .965, 1.25, and 2 inch.

Measure the hole in the focuser. The .965 inch size is harder to find.

Something inside the telescope broke. adjustment knobs are broken

Another "happy" Bushnell scope buyer. Never by a Tasco or Bushnell telescope. These are considered "toy" telescopes and are usually NOT suitable for Astronomy.

Read my tips on my profile page, or return the telescope to where you bought it.

Will not focus, only light comes through, no image at all

All the manuals for Bushnell telescopes are located on this web site- look down the page for your model telescope:

Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the focuser, this is your lowest magnification.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. Turn the focus knob slowly while keeping your eye on the eyepiece, watching closely for a focused image.

You can also try looking around in a well stocked local hardware store for something that would work. Whenever I loose a screw or bolt I first check the local hardware store for a replacement part that can be used.
