Question about Bushnell NorthStar 78-8831 (525 x 76mm) Telescope

1 Answer

Hello, I have Bushnell Northstar 78-8831 telescope which I got from United States (New York) last year. Since the very first day, I am not able to get the option of "Align Start 1" After selecting Align Earth option, it directly goes to "Align start2". As a result, I am not able to align the planetary positions and manually align the telescope everytime. Can you please advise? Regards, Gaurav

This can be caused by many things-- such as dirt or grease on the encoders inside or a slipping clutch. I know you just bought this telescope, but Bushnell is NOT KNOWN for having quality telescopes.

To get the goto to work everything must be according to the manual.

The tripod needs to be perfectly level-- time, date, and site must be accurate, and the alignment objects must each be centered in the eyepiece. Sounds like you also have electronic issues with the hand controller. Only Bushnell can repair this scope.
