Question about Bushnell 78-9669 Telescope
Good evening...My inlaws bought a telescope and brought it over tonight and no one can figure it out. Everything is assembled. We tried all the eye pieces. Took the lens cap off. Used the zoom in and out. It is night right now...We haven't tried it in the day time yet. Can I try it inside my house...It says to start with something 200 feet away...Are we missing some thing here...The only on off switch is for the laser and we can see the moon through that and the laser works fine...Any help would be appreciated. thanks
You must first learn how to focus it in the day time. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- do NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object. The red dot FINDERSCOPE must also firt be aligned with the main tube -- it is used to POINT the scope at an exact spot in the sky.
Objects in the night sky are tiny and the scope must be pointed directly at them to see anything. Locate a local Astronomy club and they will help you. Also read the manual completely.
