Bushnell voyager AN-78-9565

Hi Optics Experts,
I have a problem with a Bushnell Voyager AN 78-9565 telescope.
The mechanism that moves the eye piece in and out is broken.
I'll call this piece a worm gear.The flat peice(with what looks like threads) on the bottom of the part that holds the eye piece, is broken in three pieces.Can this be repaired ?Is it worth repairing ?Where can I buy this part ?Can I fix this myself ?Can I get instructions for taking the telescope apart ?
Thank You for any assistance.
Mike

Not worth repairing-- a new focuser for your telescope would cost as much or more than the telescope-- unless you can find a discarded telescope of the same model..... for parts.

SOURCE: the eye piece keeps falling

There are several different types of eyepiece holders:

Set-Screw-- this is a small screw on the side of the diagonal that holds in the eyepiece.

Compression ring-- again a small set screw but a brass compression ring tightens onto the eyepiece.

Plain Compression Diagonal-- the diagonal is a tight fit to the eyepiece- try binding it slightly in to get a tighter fit.

We just got our Bushnell Voyager 78-9945 Reflector Telescope. It comes with the poorest manual I have ever seen. How do you assemble the eye piece?, what is the little shiny metal triangle piece for? Does...


I think I already answered this question. Eyepieces are NOT assembled they are one piece like this picture:
http://www.amazon.com/Celestron-93342-17MM-Plossl-Eyepiece/dp/B000YKZKNI

They simply slip into the hole of the focuser -- straight in. The larger the number written on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.

In the picture above there is a metal triangle holding the tripod legs apart-- it is called a "tripod spreader" or a tripod "tray"-- used for holding eyepieces and other small pieces of equipment while you are using the scope.

Hope that helps you.

Where can i buy new Bushnell Voyager 78-9675 eye pieces and spoter scope


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.

Here are two retailers who sell eyepieces:
