The eyepiece DOES NOT assemble. It is all one piece. If you unscrew the bottom or the top-- never do this. You must reassemble the lenses exactly.

The eyepiece goes directly into the diagonal (an L shaped device with a mirror inside, and then the diagonal goes into the tube.. That's it. You can buy eyepieces from dozens of different suppliers. Here is one:

Did you remove the lens cap.

This is a simple refractor telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. Read my TIPS on my profile page.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: We just got our Bushnell

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.

We are unable locate a manual for a Bushnell telescope 78-4620B. cn yoiu direct us pleaase?


All of Bushnell's manuals are on this web site:
http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html

Remember that the manual will only have assembly instructions. It will not teach you how to focus, what eyepiece to use, or how to find objects in the night sky.

Locate a local astronomy club and the members will help you once you have assembled the telescope.

All of Bushnell manuals are on this web site, Look down the web page for your telescope:

The manual will NOT help you find objects in the sky. It only helps with assembly of the telescope.

What is the lens arrangment in the eyepiece of an 18-1560?


Did you DIS-assemble the eyepiece? If you did no one can tell you how to put it back together.There are so many different eyepieces. Normally the eyepieces just slip into the focuser.

Bushnell Deep Space Series 525x 78-9500 We didn't assemble when we received as a gift a couple of years ago and now realize that the assembly instructions were left out of box. We assembled telescope but...


The erecting prism can be used for both terrestrial and star gazing-- put it innto the scope first.

The 3x barlow probably will NOT be very useful... it triples the power of any eyepiece. Your small scope cannot go much over 100 power-- before the image degrades.

Put the eyepiece with the BIGGEST number written on it into the erecting prism which you previously stuck into the scope... now go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

The bigger the number on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.

Eyepieces not fitting into 90-degree penta mirror


Here's the link to the user manual if you need it; http://www.bushnell.com/customer_service/manuals/telescopes/78-9440_Voyager.pdf Check the bottom of page 3, I think it answers your question - eyepieces should insert directly into the penta mirror. check page 9 for a diagram showing the whole assembly. If it turns out you have the wrong eyepieces, you can contact bushnell's spares department on; http://www.bushnell.com/customer_service/partsinfo.cfm?section=General%20Use Hope this helps, please ask again if you need more info :)
