Bresser, I have purchased a s/h Bresser refractor telescope with no
instruction manual, where can I purchase or find one of these.
The information from the scope is:-
Bresser Optick. Refractor 0 60 F=900. Art, Nr 45-1200.
All the parts seem to be there.
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
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. Read More At : TeleStar DS-2114ATSA Telescope...
Just black Hi I just recently bought a Meade ds-2114ats-tc and I tried to use it last night with the kids, unfortunaltey after we set up the telescope all we could see was black. Yes we did make sure that the lens cap was off and that there was nothing blocking anything, we also tried setting it up in a couple of different spots in the back yard where we were close to a light source and also away from a light source. Basically everything I tried did not work but I am new to this so I could be doing something wrong still. I tried to manually look at the brightest star in the sky and still nothing....just black. Could I be setting this up in an area where there in either not enough light getting in or to much? This is my first time using a telescope so I don't even really know if I should be setting this up in the complete dark area or with a light source around like a backyard light for example. I am extremely confused please help.
I just got one of these today and they are different. My guess is you are having a focusing problem rather than alignment. Assuming of course you are removing the larger dustcap and not just the smaller one ha ha ha.
The instructions include how to align but maybe you can use this
Mine has two dustcaps, one full size with a smaller one in its center. Had the smaller one been offset it could have been used as an aperture stop to reduce thermal effects on bright objects such as Jupiter and the Moon. Another thing is a built in barlow within the focuser draw tube. This inreases the focal ratio of "f" number and makes align far more trickier than if it had been a straight Newtonian. Set-up the scope under and point at the bright blue sky in the day time. Pull off the small center dust cover and make sure the diagonal holder is centered under the small hole in the larger dust cover. If not that can be accomplished by adjusting the three thumb nuts on the front edge of the tube. Once this is done remove the larger dust cover and peer into the focuser from the side with the eyepiece removed. You should see blue sky and all the components should be centered. One can judge fairly well that their eye is centered but a simple trick is to draw an eyepiece sized circle on a piece of paper and using a pick or pencil, poke a small hole dead center on the circle. Place the circle centered over the draw tube and peer through that. No other tool will improve on the accuracy of this almost free and simple one. Now moving your eye closer to the focuser you should see the reflection of your own eye or in this case the hole in the center of the paper. The paper reflects and transmits enough light that it provides a bright enough targert to canter. Now you must experiment to determine which component is mis-alighned and what adjustment is required to correct. Try flexing each componet before loosening any adjustment screws.This will give you an idea of which component and in which manner it needs to move.
Now my guess is, while you have some mis-alignment the almost f:9 focal ratio makes the image extra dark and so contrasty that if you are out of focus all you will see is dark. With your 28mm eyepiece, now point the scope at a daylight scene some distance away and bring the image to a focus. Note hoe far your draw tube is extended so you will be in that neighbohood come night time. I suspect this was your problem more than mis-alignment.
