I have a bushnell Northstar telescope #788831am. Is there a place i can update the are i am looking from. It knows las vegas nv and does not pull up reno nv. I need help.


I don't believe they have an "update" web site. However they do have a customer service web site here:
http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html

According to the manual PAGE 14 choose the closest city.

See this: http://www.bushnell.com/manuals/telescopes/78-8831_Northstar_GOTORV_4L.pdf


Apparently once you center the two alignment stars it does not matter. The closest city gets you near the alignment stars if Time, Date, etc etc are set properly.

There does appear to be a latitude longitude selection in the menu-- see the manual above. See if you can also set the exact Lat-Long in the hand controller.

I"ve been an amateur astronomer for "over" forty years, started when i was eight. Stars aren't that impressive, most look the same....i spend my telescope time with a cheap $200 21/2 inch "Refractor" and have seen all planets except pluto, i had to use a 41/2 inch refractor just to be able to view Neptune and just barely saw it and yes it was Blue!! Refractors are best for planet viewing. Dont waste your time with viewing Mercury or Venus...not impresive! The best looking (but not in the next few years because of ring alignment) is Saturn...hurry up and you might still get a chance to see the rings a little before they go into what i call hibernation mode, they'll make a straight inclination though the planet which makes for not so impressive views...next most impressive and one i view the most is Jupiter and its for moons Calisto, Ganymede Io, and Europa...you will always see these in different orbits. But i just use a pair or Celestron Binoculars 15 x 70s..i use them to look at the Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Comets, overhead comunication Satilites passing bye..and the most awsome of them all the "Orion nebula" colors are outstanding, and if your real good at knowing your constellations you can locate the Andromeda Galaxy. It'll look like a buffy cotton ball with binoculars..dont view the sky ever with a full moon.it makes for poor viewing,but this is where the Reflectors like a 4"Newtonion or lot bigger like at least an eight inch Cassigrain..these telescope are made to view whats called "faint fuzzies", Nebulas, Galaxies, star clusters etc. 40 years ago i cold look up in my local skys and not have to worry about light polution..so i go out to the deserts with just my binoculars...they are so convienient. Start to learn the sky with binoculars...it"ll be well worth it! The one Great thing about binocs is that everything you view is right side up as opposed to telecopes upsidedown. To locate planets they will track within 10 degrees in the path that the sun takes. If you look and see some really bright stars that dont twinkle, chances are that it will be Jupiter, Saturn or Venus..but you will only see Venus in the early mornings or late evenings..Mars is a little trickier, sometimes its small and red and every few years it can be as bright as Jupiter when its at it closest to the earth!

How does a telescope used, and can we see a star through it even if the star is really really far?


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object.

Stars ALWAYS look like -------------- stars no matter what telescope you use. They are all too far away to see as a "disk" , always just points of light.

The closest star is Proxima Centauri at 4.2 light years away.

That is about 25 TRILLION miles!
