    Can't see anything, I assume I am missing something basic

    I have the Bushnell 78-5004 and I'm giving up but, would like to give too someone else. I'm having the exact same issue, though I brought mine about 4 years ago and since I can't use it, all I did with this was dust it off.

    So, if anyone knows whats missing or how to work it please give us a response, so I can give the info. to the new ower of the telescope

Just got a 78-8831 and set it up according to instructions. After inserting lens into eyepiece, I can't see anything at all. Dont worry, I've removed the front cap from the the main telescope.

Something leads to believe I'm either missing something real fundamental or my telescope is broken. Please help

Do not know where you live but humidity will fog the eyepiece. Put the scope out with the covers on for at least one hour to reach thermal equilibrium. Use the lowest power (highest number) eyepiece first.

Can not see thru telescope.


Yes it will focus --- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the scope. DO NOT use the 2x or 3x barlow.

Practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away during the day. The moon should be your first night time target.

Practice focusing during the day on a distant object at least 100 yards away-- use the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it-- and DO NOT use any 2x or 3x barlow to multiple the power.

The moon should be your first target at night.

Bushnell Deep Space Series 525x 78-9500 We didn't assemble when we received as a gift a couple of years ago and now realize that the assembly instructions were left out of box. We assembled telescope but...


The erecting prism can be used for both terrestrial and star gazing-- put it innto the scope first.

The 3x barlow probably will NOT be very useful... it triples the power of any eyepiece. Your small scope cannot go much over 100 power-- before the image degrades.

Put the eyepiece with the BIGGEST number written on it into the erecting prism which you previously stuck into the scope... now go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

The bigger the number on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.

New bushnell telescope, cant see anything, what am i doing wrong?


Put the lowest power eyepiece in the telescope-- that's the one with the LARGEST number on it.

Go outside and practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away-- turn the focus knob slowly.

Inverted image


All images in astronomical telescopes are upside down and reversed-- this is normal. There is no up or down in space. Reversing the image just adds more GLASS to the light path.

Lens came off-where do springs go?


There are a bunch of Sky Tour telescopes ---

http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html

which model you actually have??

I am assuming you have what is called a Dobsonian mounted reflector like this one:

Is that correct?
