SOURCE: the eye piece keeps falling

There are several different types of eyepiece holders:

Set-Screw-- this is a small screw on the side of the diagonal that holds in the eyepiece.

Compression ring-- again a small set screw but a brass compression ring tightens onto the eyepiece.

Plain Compression Diagonal-- the diagonal is a tight fit to the eyepiece- try binding it slightly in to get a tighter fit.

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.

SOURCE: I have a new bushnell voyager 78-9945.

Use the lowest magnification eyepiece until you learn how to focus-- it will be the one with the LARGEST number written on it.

Also go out when the moon is up and less than 3/4 full and practice on the moon.

I can't do much without knowing more details about what you are experiencing, but below is Bushnell's online Instruction Manual for the Voyager 789946 which I assume would be very closely related to your model.

Sky objects are VERY small the scope must be pointed directly at them--- try for the moon first --- to learn how to focus properly. Just pointing it toward the sky will not do you any good.

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.

Hello,
What you have is called a refractor-type telescope with the primary lenses (the Objective) at the top of the tube and the only other lenses in the system are your selection of eyepieces, probably a barlow lens (2X magnification of any eyepiece used), and a diagonal (in line mirror so that you cand see into the telescope from the side.). As the focal lenth of the eyepiece decreases, so does the distance away from the Objective Lens. I believe that you are using the telescope with a diagonal mirror which makes the optical path longer. The fact that your longer focal lenght eyepiece can focus and not your short one would be only if you didn't have the diagonal or the eyepiece all the way in tight to allow the focus mechanism (rack and pinioin) to get compressed enough to focus. Look at the Moon, if the image gets smaller then bigger as you focus, but not sharp, then I would have to tell you that your eyepeice lenses are not in the right order. Someoner may have taken it apart and didn.t put them back in the correct order. The lenese could just be very dirty also. Barrow a short focal lenght eyepice from a friend and see if it works in your system. Then you will know for sure.
