All goto scopes require you to do an alignment on 2 or 3 stars in the night sky-- or they will not find anything. Also the time, date, and site must be accurate-- and the tripod must be perfectly level.Read the manual again-- and perform all of the setup steps. You can download a monthly star chart here for free: alignment stars are ALWAYS the brightest stars in the sky and the first ones you can see when it starts getting

Aligning NorthStar For The First Time

Ds2114ats-lnt I am a green rookie and was given a Meade DS2114ATS-LNY telescope. I followed the dvd instructions and have read the manual. I line it up properly with easy align for north and level 0. It doesn't seem to be able to find the alignment stars properly. Is there an easier way for me to get this thing working so I can look at some planets and stars etc? Is there a way to know which stars are in the sky so that I can line it up by their name? I was wondering about entering the R.A. co-ordinates but find it confusing. The manual says it is simple but it is not for me HELPPPPPPPPPPPPP

I was having the same issue. Training the drive cleared up my problem. Meade has a step by step procedure for this on their website. Like Joe L said you will still have to center the alignment star in the eyepiece.

I have an issue on my meade ET90 AT. I have a motor failure message after the telescope try to find a star. Now when I turn on I received a message from the autostar to press 0 or mode in both case it start the test motor and appear the message Motor fault. I change the batteries but it doesn't change the result. When I turn on and I received the message "0 or press mode" if I try to push the arrows button the telescope move right and left but no up and down. I called the meade customer service and after 30 seconds they told me to bring the telescope to their repair center. Thanks

Try this.1. Do a RESET on the hand controller.2. Reenter your Site, Date, and Time.3. Calibrate MotorsNow see if that fixed it. If not it will need to be returned to Meade because a gear or circuit is broken inside the scope.

GoTo Problem Please Help... im and going crazy!!! I have a Celestron Nextstar SLT 130 GoTo scope and love the pictures it produces but cant get it to GoTo very well. It dose the three star alignment, 1 star alignment and solar alignment fine and have no problems with alignment, level the scope well and set the time to nearly the second. Once aligned and i start to move the scope around the night sky, if i try to ask the socpe to slew back to a star, even an alignment satr, it goes in the general direction but doesn't bring the star into the view field and is off by a significant amount. I have tried centering the star in the view and then asking the scope to find that star and it goes out of the view by the same amount every time. Im goging crazy. I thought it was a motor problem and swaped the scope at the store but the new one is exactly the same. I just dont know what is wrong. Im in the southern skies and only reviews is for the northern, dont know if this matters. Any help would be fantastic. Just cant get it to slew to any objests correctly!

Be sure that the telescope is configured for EQ SOUTH mode to tell it is in the southern hemisphere. Once a star alignment is completed NEVER manually move the telescope. Use only the control panel to slew. Everytime the telescope is move by hand, the motors do not know it has been done, and assume it is still pointing at the old direction. Check the manual for setup.Here:

Hello, I have Bushnell Northstar 78-8831 telescope which I got from United States (New York) last year. Since the very first day, I am not able to get the option of "Align Start 1" After selecting Align Earth option, it directly goes to "Align start2". As a result, I am not able to align the planetary positions and manually align the telescope everytime. Can you please advise? Regards, Gaurav

This can be caused by many things-- such as dirt or grease on the encoders inside or a slipping clutch. I know you just bought this telescope, but Bushnell is NOT KNOWN for having quality telescopes.To get the goto to work everything must be according to the manual.The tripod needs to be perfectly level-- time, date, and site must be accurate, and the alignment objects must each be centered in the eyepiece. Sounds like you also have electronic issues with the hand controller. Only Bushnell can repair this scope.

Entered three stars to for alignment. Display shows 1. Mintaka,

Just by selecting a new star. It will ask you if you want to replace a previous alignment star. You need to re-read the manual for the Celestron hand-controller.This web site will also help you:
