How do i set site scope to aim at what i want


Not familiar with this particular model, but you may like to try using the main scope to obtain an image (doesn't matter what), then adjusting the small sighting scope to show the same object and securing it in place. HTH

How do I sight the telescope


The "finder-scope" as they are called can be lined up by putting a low-power eyepiece in the scope, and moving the scope (on its mount) to view a distant object such as a streetlight. An EP which gives you about the same magnification as the finder-scope is a good choice. They are mostly about x8 power.


Centre the object in the eyepiece view and then adjust the finder-scope until the object is centred in that view as well.


Repeat this with a higher power EP, then move the scope onto a bright star, and use the highest magnification EP you have to finally do the last tiny adjustment to the finder-scope.

My manual wasn't in the box


Sorry I will not be able to help much.Bushnell denies existence of this toy! First of all this is not a astronomical telescope by any means. There is no finder, the mount is a piece of junk, The scope is a f/11 which means it has a narrow field of view not bad in itself, but you will be lucky to find the moon! The 4mm eyepiece exceeds the maximum power of this scope.
1. Stick with the 20mm only.
2. Simple yolk mount means push where you want to see.
3. Try aligning to an object by sighting along the optical tube. You may get to see the moon with practice.
4. Suggest you use it during the day for terrestrial objects and get used to sighting and moving the scope.
5.THROW IT OUT and buy a decent good scope (Orion has great tabletop dobsonians for cheap! The small funscope is only $50 and a great beginner scope)

I can't see anything out of the large scope


Use the 20mm to view an object (building, tree etc.) far away during the daytime. Align the finderscope to the object.
To view the moon, leave the scope out to equalize the temperature for at least 1/2 hour. Use the 20mm and no barlow. Point the scope towards the moon by sighting along the barrel of the scope, then use the finder to zero in on the moon. You may then switch to the 4mm eyepiece. for a more magnified view of the moon. You will have to keep moving the telescope because of the earth's rotation. The higher the magnification, the more you will have to adjust the scope. Because of the cheap finderscope, finding the planets will be difficult. Best to always sight down the length of the scope to get you close. The planets will be small and indistinct.
This is not a astronomical telescope! May be used for views of the moon but the cheap mount is not suitable for other planets. Max power would be 225x NOT 420x as advertised. The erecting prism is for terrestrial use only.
Nothing discourages an amateur astronomer more than a toy store telescope. My advise would be to use this scope for nature watching and go buy a good telescope (Meade, Celestron, Orion etc.). Even Those 60mm refractors are superior to this! A descent scope would cost a minimum of $200

The holder for the sighting scope that is mounted to the main tube of the telescope with two screws is broken and i need to replace the holding part that has two screws so that I can use the sighting scope


I would just replace the entire finder scope with a better quality-- here is one retailer that sells replacement finder scopes:

150-1400 Newtonian telescope Set the sight scope eye piece on the moon and looked in the pl 25mm lens in the focusing tube and no image? Can anyone help Philip moondogs2@myway.com


You must align the finder scope with the main telescope tube--

During the daytime look at something far away in the main scope-- without moving the scope center the cross hairs on the finder scope.

Good luck

Your finder is not aligned with your telescope. During the day time focus on a distant small object with the telescope-- then without moving the telescope adjust the crosshairs in the finder to match the telescope.

Sniper scopes


A scope is a personal preference really but there are some ground rules that do need to be followed.

any scope will be effective in a good shooters hands. however there are some bells and whistles that are nice to have.

1) For long distance shooting a scope with 40 MOA is preferable this allows for 10 MOA down and 30 MOA up giving the rifle the ability to zero for any range.

2) Hold over graphs are a beauty when your in a rapid target environment. here is an example
http://www.zeiss.com/C12568CF00206298/GraphikTitelIntern/rz1000_lg/$File/rz1000_lg.gif

this is more of a hunting scope but this hold over calibration allows for rapid fire.
