You cannot! That is one of the worst telescopes you can possibly have and use. It is being sold by Toys R Us. We receive more complaints on that brand than any other.

Your only source for parts will be a local well stocked hardware store. The scope you bought will do nothing but frustrate you.

Next time buy one of these:

Bushnell 78-9003 telescope purchased at yard sale with no eyepiece. Where can I purchase one that will fit? It talks about a .965 inch eyepiece.


.965 eyepieces are readily available on ebay. A meade 25mm MA (modified achromat) is about $10 plus shipping This will give you 700mm/25mm= 28x power. Avoid any eyepiece marked with a H (Huygens) as they have terrible field of view.
.965 is not a popular size anymore and Bushnell does not make very good telescopes. Don't get frustrated, if you are still interested, buy a Meade, Celestron, Orion quality telescope.

I purchased a Meade DS-90AT at a garage sale but it is missing the battery pack (the holder for 10 AA batteries). I called Meade and learned it is no longer available. Any suggestions as to what I can...


You can use any 12 volt power pack like a car starter battery pack-- with the proper cigarette lighter style power cord.

Just buy one with a cigarette lighter style plug-in port- 12 volt-- you can find these at auto parts stores for about $49.

Eyepieces are typically expensive. Here is a link to some lower cost ones at $24 each. You only need 1 or two to get started. try 25mm and 12mm.
