Guide :Optics : Ariel FT300 Monocular

Ariel we are down stairs in a rumpus room and get good, nz1 nz2 and nz3. but the other channels are are fuzzy, ghosted and go in and out, and are impossible to watch when its raining. mum who lives upstairs also gets good tv nz 1 2 and 3, and has the same problem plus gets some sort of emi on her 100hz tv,  which is strange because we dont. ( could that be the boster? ). she has a shorter tv cable to the ariel .  We origionally had a low gain ariel which worked well and i dont remember having any of the current problems. until we did, so we got a technician in and he put up a high gain ariel. We live about 400 meters from some power lines and are in a valley. Also the tv cable is thin, i think its rg9. Question? would using rg6 cable ( thicker cable ) and adjusting the low gain ariel fix week signal  problem, and is there anything that could help with the emi that my mum gets. please send me your thoughts to...

Suggested Questions And Answer :


When i got the item i had no manual and i dont know how to use it or build it so i was wondering can this site get the manual for me because i have searched high ad low for one so can you get me a manual


Usually if you enter the information (make,model, year, etc.)in your google search bar and ask for the manual you can get it in pdf form. I've done that with a refridgerator and also my sewing machine and it worked,you can either print it or download it.

I have a Meade LX-90 8 inch telescope that gets a motor fault failure in declination. I have done all the usual attempts to fix it Ex. train drive which geberates error, swap out autostar, autostar cable, reseat cables on the dec motor board etc. On approx 11/2010 I posted this same question to FixYa and they gave me the name of a person who I beleive lived in Haverhill Mass who I contacted thru the Yahoo LX-90 user group and was planning on bringing my scope to him for possible repair. As luck would have it I had a harddrive failure and lost all infomation about this person (should have put the info on paper) Yup I know about backups, had external HD backup which did not work. Is it possible that you would still have this persons name so I could contact him again. Thank You In Advance John Maher Hudson Ma [email protected]


Well it could be several people:Ron Sampson -- available on the Yahoo LX90 group post a message for him- he can repair any of the boards inside the scope and also the hand controller.or The Astronomy Shoppe- http://www.astronomy-shoppe.com/

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: http://www.celestron.com/c3/images/files/downloads/NexStar_SLT_manual.pdf

USB Cable Got a pair of Vivitar Camera Binoculars as a Christmas gift, but there was no USB Cable included in the box, even though it showed a cable as part of the package. All the USB cables I have tried are too large for the connection. How can I get a USB cable so I can use my new present?


Look for a product like this in you local computer shop or on line in your region Universal USB Kit[URL=http://www.imagethrust.com][IMG]http://i117.imagethrust.com/i/703514/usbkit.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

I cannot get my finderscope red dot to lineup with my main scope ,its a SKP13065EQ2 .it will not lineup , i did send SKYWATCH a e-mail and that was almost 2 mths ago .i did line up the main scope like it said in the master book ,on page 11 (using the red dot finder) and i got as far as number 3 ,then it all went out the window,i could not get to number 4.i tryed to turn both the AZIMUTH and ALTITUDE to bring it in line and it will not do as it says in the book.i looked in the main to make sure it was in line with to object(it was) but the dot was not.i went to the FULL max on both and still no joy.i did find that the finder 'when you add the finder and screwin to lock it moves about 2-4 mm to the left.with this i worked out it was about 1and a half-2 inchs off.i was thinking of drilling another hole or mark it to see if i can get it to line up the right way.i do not want to spend £200 and keep looking from the back to line up the scope all the time .don't get me wrong i love the scope i got but its a pain in the *** when something will not go right. any help on this and how to fixit


Can you return the red dot finder? It's apparently broken.These can be purchased (not too very expensive)here:http://www.telescope.com/control/category/~category_id=finder_scopes
