I think you mean the eyepieces. There is more than one fitting size of eyepiece, but if you bought the telescope new, the ones supplied with it should certainly fit. There may be a little plastic plug in the opening that the eyepiece goes into, to keep out dust, and there may be a protective cap on one or both ends of the eyepieces as well. You need to remove these before fitting the eyepiece. The commonest sort of eyepiece measures 1.25 inches in outside diameter, and fits in a tube of the same inside diameter, with a little screw that you tighten by hand to hold it.

I have a Bushnell Telescope model # AG-78-4306 I need the part that attaches the tripod to the telescope


Telescopes and other things designed to fit on a tripod usually have a female thread and the attaching screw is part of the tripod.

If there is no female thread it isn't designed to fit on a tripod and an adaptor will be required. If it is available it will have to be sourced from the manufacturer or an optic specialist.

If it was mine I would have a brief look through Amazon/ebay and if no luck I would fabricate something myself.

We have lost the lense I'd like to order a new one


You have to measure the opening of the focuser. It is either .965 or 1.25 inches in diameter. Maximum magnification is less than 100x (50x per inch of aperture 50mm= 1.96 inch) This would be true for a real telescope.
Note: this is a toy NOT a telescope. It will only frustrate you and turn you off from astronomy.
You are better off throwing this out and get a good basic scope from Meade,Celestron, Orion or Skywatcher.

I cant attach lens to my sons vivitar telescope


Most lenses don't screw in, they drop in, and are clamped by a thumbscrew at the side.

There may be a size reduction adapter you have to insert first

View finder displays are upsidedown


Telescopes generally will display images upside-down, due to the way the image is magnified. On many telescopes, the eyepiece is removable, and can be exchanged with many different attachments and lenses. One of which being an image rectifier (or image flipper), which flips the image back to normal. Unfortunately these lenses can be pretty expensive, and will reduce the amount of light being passed through the telescope due to the addition of more lenses, so are only primarily used for day terrestrial viewing. Hope this helps.

How do I focus on the moon. Model 1400150. I have been gifted this telescope. Tried to focus on moon. Dont know how. Took big cap off end. Looked throughscope on top of large cylinder. Tried to focus...


first, use the lowest power eyepiece, that's the one with the high number on it with 'mm' after the number.

for a refractor telescope (uses lenses), you might have to add a diagnal lens (either 45 degree or 90 degree, whichever one you have) to focus on an object.
attach it in this order:

low power eyepiece-->diagnal lens-->main telescope

for a reflector telescope (uses mirrors, a telescope with a big tube with a mirror at the bottom and a focusing knob on one side of the tube). the open part of the tube points to your target.

hope this helps :D

I have the same Telescope and am looking for lenses


If the opening is about 1 inch then you need eyepieces that are .965 inch --

The common sizes are .965, 1.25 , and 2 inch.

.965 eyepieces are available for purchase on Ebay and here:

Bushnell Deep Space Series 525x 78-9500 We didn't assemble when we received as a gift a couple of years ago and now realize that the assembly instructions were left out of box. We assembled telescope but...


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.
