I suppose you are talking about collimation is way off.

Read and watch these to get an idea of how to collimate a reflector

Looking at a clear bright sky at night and we can't see a thing - it is at if lowest eyepiece - got it from sears Dec. 29th - it is the Bushnell 3" reflector telescope w/talking guide and tripod


Can you focus during the day time on a distant object. If you can nothing is wrong with the scope. Objects in the night sky are tiny, smaller than the tip of your finger held at arms length.

Practice focusing during the day time, and read my TIPS on my profile page.

I recently bought a used bushnell reflector telescope that is missing a tripod mounting bracket and screw, can you please tell me where i can find one?


You cannot find parts for that very low cost telescope. You can buy a tripod but the cost will probably be more than you paid for the scope.

Here are tripods:

Next time do not waste your money on these types of telescopes. Instead save up and buy something like this:

I have a bushnell 78-8876 scope , AM i cant get an image


Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing during the day time on a distant object.

If this is a reflector style telescope the focuser is on the UP END of the telescope. The mirror is the bottom of the telescope. Remove the lens cap.

I dont know how to use it


This is a simple reflector style telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Practice focusing on a distant object during the daytime.

Objects in the night sky are tiny and dim. They are smaller than the tip of your finger held at arm's length. The scope must be pointed DIRECTLY at them to see them.

Buy these two books, Turn Left at Orion, and Nightwatch. Local a local Astronomy club to help you with your telescope.

Can't see anything through eyepiece.


The FOCUSER end should be pointed UP the mirror end is toward the ground. Turn the scope around and put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

That is a REFLECTOR style telescope. Just go to Meade's web site and download a REFLECTOR manual that is similar to your telescope. They all work the same way.

The end with the focuser is point UP, the big mirror is on the bottom. Remove the cap, put the eyepiece in that has the largest number written on it and practice focusing on a distant object during the daytime.

Bushnell 114mm reflector telescope, can't see a thing


Probably NOT actually pointed directly at the moon-- you should have moved it around a little -- the moon was probably just outside the field of view through the eyepiece. ........................ telescope must be pointed DIRECTLY at the sky object-- also use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it=== this gives the LOWEST magnification..... and a slightly wider field of view.

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!
