Celestron telescope Im in northern hemisphere using Nexstar 4SE Telescope. I want to use the in built wedge, imagining a compass should the hinge be at the north or the latitude adjuster?

The hinge should be to the north. An imaginary line drawn perpendicular from the center of the tilt plate should point to Polaris (the North Star).

How to realign a permanent base for a 16'' Meade LX200 Telescope


You will not need the GPS to work once you are polar aligned, especially if you use the PARK feature before you turn it off.If the base can be rotated to within 1 or 2 degrees of true North you can use the RA adjustments on the wedge to compensate for the error. Is this a commercial wedge or one that someone welded together from steel? If it is commercial it should have RA adjustments. BUT, you will still need to get near true North or you will not have enough adjustment to correct the final few degrees of error. If you can point the scope at Polaris you will be within "range" of the possible wedge adjustment.This may help you:http://www.tucsonastronomy.org/pier.htm see step #2http://www.ccastronomy.org/photos_home_observatories_reil.htm see #8http://www.pier-tech.com/telescope_pier_installation.htmHope this helps you.

Joe- Today I checked out my friends scope and specifically looked over the misaligned mount. Tomorrow, with the help of some contractors we are going to remove the scope, cut the bolts, and then break the pedestal free from the glue fastening it to the concrete. My friend is an archeologist and has an electronic theodolite/compass device, which we plan to use to realign the scopes pedestal to true north. I found our magnetic declination for our location and date at http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/geomagmodels/struts/calcDeclination and will correct the alignment from magnetic to true north. Once this is done the wedge angle needs to be correct and I am worried because I didn't see any adjustment mechanism for altering the altitude angle of the wedge. My friend says he gave Meade the exact Latitude/Longitude coordinates, and thinks that probably the wedge is made with correct angle already. Right now, I'm thinking the only way to know for sure is to try to polar align the scope after it is remounted facing true north. If the angle is wrong and it turns out the wedge really isn't adjustable, is there any option but a new mount? In additon to the above, my friend tells me there is another possible problem, the autostar has to have the date and time reentered every night it has been used. Is this due to the non-functioning GPS? And,more importantly, will this effect the Goto functions? Again- thanks in advance for your help- my friends trust in my abilities to help greatly exceed my level of understanding- so you are needed and appreciated... Sincerely- Scott R.


Hum? I have never heard of a Meade wedge that was not adjustable?It might be possible to SHIM up the wedge slightly by using either thin metal shims, but DOWN would be a problem.Does he have a tripod for the telescope? If he does you can try to do a polar alignment on the tripod and see what happens.???You can find a Meade Super Wedge or Ultra Wedge from time to time on AstroMart.com It will cost you $12 to join so you can fully use the web site. You can place a WANTED AD on the web site saying you are looking for a wedge, and try to find a used wedge at reduced cost.HOPEFULLY, it will be correct, and also you may be able to use the bolts coming out of the pier and put some bolts on them to RAISE or lower the angle?Look at this pier-http://www.astro.shoregalaxy.com/telescope%20pier%202.jpg

The azimuth adjustment keys don't work


Send it back along with the hand controller describing the problem. Could be several things including a bad hand controller. If there is a local astronomy shop nearby take the scope there and ask to try one of the hand controllers in the shop and test it. If it now works you just need to buy another hand controller.Otherwise send it in for repair

I have a nexstar 6 SE and before my wife and I even used it once,some jealous idiot started playing with it in the extra room,and turned the manual focus adjustment knob so far in one direction that He broke it.It no longer adjusts focus so its constantly out of focuds.Ive never worked on a telescope,but I am very mechanically inclined and with the replacement part and good directions I can problay pull it off,unless special tools are required.I also have no problem sending it to a qualified repair facility,or taking it there if there is one in Las Vegas NV. Thank you very much!! KYE!


Contact Celestron for replacement parts here:http://www.celestron.com/c3/page.php?PageID=37See if they have one.You can also send it back to them for repair.

Latitude adjustment does not hold


There are 2 lock down bolts for the latitude adjustment, On my Meade I just witched the front one and the back one around. You will see one of them is longer than the other. This is for the switching depending on which side of the equator you live on.

Celestron nexstar 11" gps scope


Be sure that the Azimuth Axis is Lock, you migth want to try and move the telescope in the Azimuth to make sure it is it is locked. Be carful not to force it. I have seen on some post where the locking part of the Azimuth somtimes breaks. and the Azimuth Axis will just spin freely Locked down or not.

Meade LX200GPS 16" out of calibration?


Www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/.../LX200GPS_manual.pdf Above is your user manual. Below is the polar alignment guide. dchamberlain.net/Astronomy/polar_alignment_guide.pdf Below is an online manual. http://www.astrodude.com/lx200manual/whnjs.htm An auto guiding link below. mainecav.org/todd/astronomy/.../lx200gps_rs-232_autoguiding.pdf - How to align tutorial. www.ehow.com/how_5994113_align-meade-lx200.html - United States You indeed seem very competent, and i think that using this above information, you will be able to figure it all out. Setting these up is indeed the hardest thing, although as you know once set, it is all good. I hope all this information I have provide you will help. I indeed see nothing wrong with your suggestion, IF, that's indeed what needs to be done, and ONLY do it, id after doing everything else first, you still cannot Zero it, then doing as you say should set it to rights, good luck.
