Question about Bushnell Optics
You never told us what model number or telescope TYPE you own. Is this a refractor or a reflector. ???
If a REFRACTOR usually you have a diagonal, the diagonal goes into the focuser and then the eyepiece goes into the diagonal.
On a REFLECTOR the eyepiece goes directly into the focuser.

Did you remove the lens cap.
This is a simple refractor telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.
Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. Read my TIPS on my profile page.

hi there koosie when using the 4mm eye piece you have to be looking at something at quite a distance hence the power with a 20mm eye piece you can focus closer objects and dont need so much light as the 4mm the more power the more light and furthur away the least power(20mm)the least light and closer you cant focus close with a 4mm eye piece but can with a 20mm

The erecting prism can be used for both terrestrial and star gazing-- put it innto the scope first.
The 3x barlow probably will NOT be very useful... it triples the power of any eyepiece. Your small scope cannot go much over 100 power-- before the image degrades.
Put the eyepiece with the BIGGEST number written on it into the erecting prism which you previously stuck into the scope... now go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.
The bigger the number on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.

Probably NOT actually pointed directly at the moon-- you should have moved it around a little -- the moon was probably just outside the field of view through the eyepiece. ........................ telescope must be pointed DIRECTLY at the sky object-- also use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it=== this gives the LOWEST magnification..... and a slightly wider field of view.

if it's a reflector telescope (a mirror on one end of the tube and an open end on the other), you point the open end of the tube at your target.
or you might need to collimate your telescope. sky and telescope's websit shows you how to do it. it's under the 'Do-It-Yourself' section (left side of page).
hope this helps :D
