I have the Bushnell model 78-4678 and also was looking for the owner's manual, but couldn't find it. I decided to call Bushnell at this number (800) 423-3537 and talked to tech support. I explained that the telescope was hand-me-down and needed an owner's manual. They are sending me the owner's manual for free! So far, it sounds like this is going to work!

There are a BUNCH of Bushnell manuals on their website here:

http://www.bushnell.com/customer_service/manuals/telescope.cfm

Even if it's not exact for your scope, many times the information in a manual for a similar model will help you.

This won't apply for some electronic models, but the mechanics are easy to match up.

A telescope like that has a very narrow depth-of-field, so you need to focus very, very slowly to be able to see any image. Try focusing on something bigger (like a spot on the moon) and adjust the crosshair accordingly. The two eyepieces gives different 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.

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

which model you actually have??

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

Is that correct?
