Question about Bushnell 3" Reflector Telescope w/Talking Guideand Tripod

1 Answer

Whats the matter with the telescope

Like others, I can't see NOTHING is their something missing or is it broken. What are we doing wrong. Is their something that is suppose to be in the finder because we notice that their is a switch to the side of this thing. I'm giving my telescope to a co-worker because I thought it's because I got too much light where I live but, someone else took it home and he was in darkness and still see nothing.

    All setup, can see out of the finderscope and out of the eyepiece and erecting scope when connected.... but if connect to the main scope, nothing. Except perhaps my eyelashes.

I recently bought a Cstar Optics T45375 from a garage sale. it seems one of the inner scopes inside the eye piece is missing. is there anywhere i can go to see if it is missing and if so where can i get a...


Inner scope??? you mean the eyepiece (s) are broken. Measure the hole eyepieces come in 3 sizes, .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes.

The .965 eyepieces are very difficult to find as most amateur telescopes use the 1.25 inch size.

Try Telescope Warehouse or Agena Astroproducts for a replacement eyepiece:

Don't ever buy another off brand telescope at a garage sale that you know nothing about.

Meade/auto star problem


You never said what model. The CD ROM only contains free planetarium software which you can also down load on Meade's web site here:

www.meade.com look under the Customer Service link.

Motor Faults are usually caused by low power and or a broken part.

If you have CALIBRATE MOTORS feature in the hand controller do this first. If it still does not work, RESET the hand controller, reenter date, time, and SITE, and calibrate motors again.

If this does not work something is broken inside the scope.

Upside down images on my telescope. Bought used -no manuel. What to do?


In a refractor images are upside down as with most telescopes. You need an image erector to create a normal correct R and L and Up and Down image. It is a lens which goes in front of the eyepiece to give a correct image.

If you dont have any experience with telescopes, I suggest trying it first in daytime, since daytime objects are much better for getting experience. Also, start with the lowest power eyepiece, the one with the largest lens. Start by looking towards something pretty big, like a car or a house, and it needs to be some distance away to even have a chance to get a focus. If your target is closer than about 1/4 mile, you should add the right angle eyepiece attachment to allow you to focus in on closer objects.

When you are finally set up with the low power eyepiece, and have a good big target in the daytime, start looking thru the telescope while turning the knob thru the entire range. At some point of knob turning, you should see some image appear in the eyepiece..Turn the knob slowly to focus it clearly.

And this is for the shaky tripod. If you can hang a book under the middle of the tripod, the added weight will help stabilize the telescope, and you should be able to see a little better, without so much motion at the slightest touch.

After you look at the first car or house, you can see how careful you have to be to use the telescope, and you can start to look at other objects. When you move to the higher power eyepieces, it will be even more critical in getting it both aimed and focused. If its off by just a few degrees, you wont see what you are looking for.

When you start nightime viewing, start with the largest object in the sky, the moon. Its the same process as daytime, except the eyepiece mechanism will have to be adjusted a little closer to the main body of the telescope.

Viewing planets and stars will be the ultimate test. Stars and planets are harder to see, since they are small, and hard to see unless they are in focus. When you can see those views, you have passed the telescope test. Its a matter of careful aim, and having the telescope focus set close to the point where you can see objects that are VERY FAR AWAY. If you are able to focus on the moon, you will be fairly close to being able to focus on the planets. The hardest part is actually getting the planet in the view of the telescope, in other words, aiming it.

The last item that can really mess up the view is a fogged up lens. Usually this happens in the summer when the scope has been in the air-conditioned room, and then it fogs up when taken outside. The solution for this is to let the telescope sit outside for 20 minutes, so the fogged lenses can clear. By the way, the same fogging may happen when you bring the telescope inside during the winter.

I hope this helps you eventually get a clear view of some amazing views in the sky. Your final exam is to take a look at the moon, the rings of Saturn, and the moons of Jupiter, some time in the near future. Have Fun!

Nothing------ stars are always JUST STARS no matter what scope you are using. They are too far away to see a disk. Point this scope at Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mars-- or other star clusters and the moon.

Remember stars are always just points of light-------- using Google look up the "Messier Objects"--- there are 110 of them in the night sky at different times of the year.
