This is a small REFRACTOR style telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the small lens that says 2x (barlow) on the side.

Read this web site:
http://www.texasastro.org/telescope.php

so you understand what the different types of telescopes look like when setup correctly. Bushnell has a web site with all of their current manuals here:

Look down the web page and find your telescope and download a manual. Read my TIPS on my profile page.

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.

The focusing knob and the toothed focus rack on the underside of my telescope has disintigrated, I suspect through electrolytic reaction of the different metals. Is there a repair facility in East Sussex...


There are no dealers left in East Sussex who understand telescopes although there are a few dealers selling them as a sideline to their main business.

But just to the north of you in Edenbridge, Kent is Telescope House. They're probably the best specialist telescope supplier in the UK and worth the short trip from where you are. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.

From memory, the fault you have is common to a number of Bushnell models so there may already be a repair kit or you may have to replace the entire focusser assembly for one which hasn't been made as poorly as Bushnell usually supply.

I hope that you solve this problem soon as there's some great viewing lately! If my answer has been of assistance please return the favour by rating it.

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.

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.
