Question about Bushnell Optics
I have a Bushnell 565 telescope I am having trouble assembling the eyepiece, it seems like a piece is missing?
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.

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.

I think I already answered this question. Eyepieces are NOT assembled they are one piece like this picture:
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.
