There is a socket to provide an external 12 volts from a mains adapter, car lighter socket or external battery These are all additional accessories. Got it, continue to print. This would have rather little consequence though. The earlier Celestron GT telescope used a clam shell velestron so that the position of the eyepiece and finder can be adjusted and also the tube can be balanced dependent on the neexstar used.
Earlier in the day I had aligned the red dot finder with the optical axis of the telescope by observing the top of a distant street lamp. For example Sirius and the Dumbbell Nebula. This obviously limits the weight that can be supported – to around 5kg. Here is a work-around that will give the scope an approximate tracking rate if you have a reasonable knowledge of the sky. As we will see below, the finder is hardly used except when initially aligning the scope.
I should have known that it was Saturn, but it was very difficult to get ones bearings with so few stars visible. Down and clockwise it slewed. But I was away.
The computer will tell you to align on a specific star. Lets have a look at the innovative method that this telescope can use for alignment. This would allow manuaal optical tubes to be fitted provided they are not too heavy. All the objects must be greater in magnitude than 2. Observing ones eye reflecting in the secondary and primary mirrors through the eyepiece indicated that the collimations was not far off.
But if you then go to the Moon it will at least attempt to celetron it across the sky.
What more can one ask for? All appeared in the field of view though were barely visible through the haze. This has a small, but worthwhile, increase in aperture over the previously available budget reflectors which came with mm diameters. Called SkyAlign it is wonderfully simple to use.
The tube can slr moved in altitude relatively easily, but the clutch seems much tighter in azimuth and I have only ever moved it under motor control. The optics of this scope are clearly up to the mark!
One can simply choose the objects that one can see at the time provided they are reasonably far apart in the sky.
By pressing ‘print’ button you will print only current page. If you have questions or problems with set-up, please contact Celestron Technical Support: Again, given the date and time it knows the positions of the Moon and planets on the sky so that they can be used too.
During moments of very good seeing I could see the Cassini division and possibly a hint of a band around the surface — by this time the skies were clearing somewhat. Suppose as happened to me one evening that the Moon is popping in an out of clouds and there is very little sky visible so true alignment was not possible.
I particularly like the fact that it allows you to select the objects. The brightest stars in the SAO Smithsonian ………. The Optical Ceestron Assembly. Many of these will be rather faint for this sized telescope. Accesses a set of object lists such as named stars and named objects. The Messier Catalogue of just over objects.
When I aligned on it I realised it was the planet Saturn! My final move was back to Capella to do a little star testing — comparing the intra and extra-focal images. I could not make out the nebula but I could see the line of three stars and the 4 stars of the trapezium at its heart. I believe this and the other telescopes in the Nextstar range will be able to painlessly introduce many newcomers to the night sky. For the 25mm I used a 24mm Celestron Ultima — a very high quality 5 element design – and for the 9mm a 10mm Vixen Lanthanum which is also highly regarded.
On the next clear night I tried to assess the quality of the eyepieces. This is far, far better than the thick metal vanes that I have seen on several mm Newtonians and less image degradation will result as a consequence. Before you can begin observing,you must setup your hand control, align your finderscope and align your telescope.
This is in contrast to an equatorial mount when, apart from small corrections, only one drive is running. By aligning on three objects it has three sets of azimuth and altitudes. Their performance will be described below.

Comments to this Manuals Your Name. Used with the 9mm eyepiece, this will give the effect of a 4. A small ring on the centre of the primary mirror helps to carry out collimation if necessary. The first light observations described above showed that primary mirror was excellent.
For this purpose they celstron vastly better than the cheap 6 x 30 which in practice are sometimes stopped down to nearer 10 straight through finders.
The second was a piece of software that would allow you to control the telescope from a laptop or computer given a suitable connecting cable which can be bought as an accessory. They looked fine to me.
