Accessory Tray Braces Your Bushnell Telescope is now ready to be used. To obtain the fullest enjoyment from your telescope, please refer to the additional information below. Astronomical telescopes are designed such that the image you see will appear UPSIDE DOWN and REVERSED, this is acceptable for viewing celestial bodies.
With the lowest power eyepiece (the one with the largest number printed on it) you should be able to focus the same image that you saw through the finderscope. Avoid the temptation to move directly to the highest power.
Where do I start? Your Bushnell telescope can bring the wonders of the universe to your eye. While this manual is intended to assist you in the set-up and basic use of this instrument, it does not cover everything you might like to know about astronomy.
What do the numbers on the eyepiece mean ? If after you have set-up your new telescope you are unable to see any objects, use this Quick Reference guide to help you to understand the cause of the problem and quickly determine a remedy I’ve completed the set-up yet I cannot see anything...
