Question about Bushnell Voyager 78-9945 Telescope

1 Answer

We just got our Bushnell Voyager 78-9945 Reflector Telescope. It comes with the poorest manual I have ever seen. How do you assemble the eye piece?, what is the little shiny metal triangle piece for? Does any one know of a site or a video that explains the pieces and shows how to assemble this telescope? I know some of you assembled this with the same manual, but I am feeling frustrated. Thank you for your help. Sid

I think I already answered this question. Eyepieces are NOT assembled they are one piece like this picture:
http://www.amazon.com/Celestron-93342-17MM-Plossl-Eyepiece/dp/B000YKZKNI

They simply slip into the hole of the focuser -- straight in. The larger the number written on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.

In the picture above there is a metal triangle holding the tripod legs apart-- it is called a "tripod spreader" or a tripod "tray"-- used for holding eyepieces and other small pieces of equipment while you are using the scope.

Hope that helps you.

Hi , I have a Bushnell 570 x 60 Rotary Compact Reflector Model 78-9570 and both rack and pinion focusing knobs have broken off - the alloy(?) has broken about 1/2" from the black knob. Is it worth...


No it's not --- junk it and buy another telescope. This time avoid Bushnell- Tasco, and Edu Science scopes.

Check out the Orion web site here, for a Dobsonian reflector telescope. The most aperture for the least amount of money.

Which end piece do I remove,the one closest to the view finder ?


The end with the focuser is the UP end of the telescope. This is a reflector style telescope with a mirror in the BOTTOM. Take off the lens cap on the UP end near the focuser.

Where can i buy new Bushnell Voyager 78-9675 eye pieces and spoter scope


Many on line retailers sell eyepieces. They come in three sizes, .965, 1.25, and 2 inch.

Measure the hole in the focuser. The .965 inch size is harder to find.

Here are two retailers who sell eyepieces:

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.

Not worth repairing-- a new focuser for your telescope would cost as much or more than the telescope-- unless you can find a discarded telescope of the same model..... for parts.
