You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade maintains a web site for their telescope manuals. Look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.

Can not seem to focus when we look through the

try this:
see the mini scope on top of the telescope?--that's called the finder scope--
you look through that to see what the telescope is aimed at, just like what a sniper does before he pulls the trigger.

put in the lowest power eyepiece you have in the telescope, the one with a high number on it.

it's a good idea to align the 'finder' with the telescope during the day time--it's much easier.

if your telescope and finder scope aren't aligned properly, aiming your telescope at any target will be off and you'll just get frustrated.
to do this, look through your finder scope and pick a far away target, put in the lowest power eyepiece you have, that's the one with a high number--
high number = low power = a nice big view in the telescope.
low number on eyepiece = high magnification, like a zoom lens.

always use the lowest eyepiece first, then work your way to higher magnification, if you want to get a closer look at your target.

use lowest power eyepiece in telescope--> look through finder scope -->focus the image--> switch to higher power of eyepiece for a closer look at your target.

practice this during the day until you're comfortable, then try it at night.
try the moon, it's a nice big target

you can also use binoculars to check out the night sky.
you can try using 7x35 or 7x50 binoculars.
you see a lot more stars and it gives nice big views of the stars and constellations...and the moon...

hope this helps :D

The piece you look through with the glass is gone

You mean the eyepieces correct? You can buy these on the internet-- here is one of hundreds of retailers-- you will need to know the size of the eyepiece hole--- measure it-- usually 1.25 inch but sometimes .965 inch.

Unable to see out telescope, might be missing a lens

You need a "diagonal" and an eyepiece on the "small end" of the telescope-- where the focus knobs are located.

Do you have these pieces? If you do put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the diagonal and then put the diagonal into the telescope. The bigger the number the LESS magnification.

Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away --- the lower magnification helps you learn how to focus.

Please help!

The bigger the number on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification. Always start out with the lowest magnification, focus and center the object and then exchange the eyepieces for higher magnification.

Can not see anything thru the lens

Put the lowest power eyepiece into the telescope-- that's the one with the LARGEST number on it--

Take the scope outside and point it at a distant object over 100 yards away. Then practice focusing the telescope-- turn the knob slowly.

Eyepiece assembly bushnell telescope

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.
