Suggested Questions And Answer :


Hi, a few days back I purchased Nexstar 4SE. I set it up exactly how it says in the manual still I cannot see any magnifying views from the eye piece. While aligning the telescope I can find the moon from StarPointer but when I look in the eyepiece I can't see moon. When I look at stars from the eye piece they just appear like a tiny dots (just like they appear to naked eye). I am confused what step I am missing here. Or it it possibility that the eye piece is a defected piece? Please help!! Thanks,Neha


Stars will always appear as points. It is not possible to magnify them enough to see them as disks because they are all extremely far away. A telescope will however show you stars and other objects that are too dim to see with the naked eye.You will be able to see the planets as disks, and even features on the planets, such as the bands on Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and the phases of Venus, and also moons around some planets. There are other objects that will show more detail when magnified, such as nebula. You will be able to see a lot of craters and other detail on the Moon.Your problem is simply that you are not pointing the telescope at these objects. This seems to be one of those telescopes that "automatically" finds objects, but these so called "go to" scopes only do this when they are set up properly. I can't say what step(s) you have missed, but clearly even if the scope thinks it is pointed at the moon, if you can't see the moon, it is NOT pointed there. The Moon will fill the field of view even with the least powerful eyepiece. If you are seeing stars as points, then the eyepiece is focussed and working properly.

I have the Nexstar 8. It will not auto align or manual....


You must set TIME, DATE, and SITE-- probably does not know your actual location. Read the manual and perform all of the setup procedures. Some of these have a "starting position" again read the manual and make sure you are in the "home" position before you start the alignment. Read my TIP on my profile page about GOTO telescopes, and join the NEXSTAR forum on www.cloudynights.com

I have a NexStar 4 which was given to me in 2003 but has been tucked away until recently. It was aligned at that time. I've been having a lot of problems with it and don't know if something happened to it or if we're doing something wrong. I can only pull up information on NexStar 4SE. How can I get assistance for my specific telescope?


This scope must be aligned every time you take it outside. You must follow the setup instructions in the manual.If you do not have a manual one can be downloaded on the web site below by clicking on your telescope:http://www.celestron.com/c3/downloads.phpAlso make sure the batteries inside are brand new alkaline type batteries-- but a seperate 12 volt power pack runs the scope better than the internal batteries. The proper 12 volt cable can be purchased from Celestron and or www.scopestuff.comAlso this web site is probably the best source on the internet for Celestron brand telescopes.http://www.nexstarsite.com/www.telescopeman.orgwww.telescopeman.uswww.telescopeman.info

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).

I have a celestron nexstar 5 the begins to move on it own


Many times a bad cable will cause this. Also low batteries can cause this.Contact Celestron and order a new cable. Use an external 12 volt power pack.http://www.celestron.com/c3/page.php?PageID=37

The Celestron Nexstar 4SE makes a weird cracking noise when you press the left or right arrows on the controller. I tried taking it off of the tripod, and it still will not rotate left or right, even if you do it manually. It does rotate up and down. Is there something that is blocking the telescope from rotating? Is there a mechanical problem? :|


Is the AZimuth clutch locked down? Then either a gear is broken inside or the worm gear inside has slipped and is not engaing. You can return these to Celestron for repair, here:http://www.celestron.com/c3/page.php?PageID=37
