Hi Joe, My name is also Joe and I just bought a Celestron AstroMaster 114 and need a hand with the elevation,inclination, declination settings(what should my gauges be set to) to star using the unit. Any...

Your DEC is the same as your Latitude--

Right Ascension does not matter for now. Polar Align the scope on the star Polaris-- read this:

Once you are polar aligned, rotate the tube to a star in the sky that you KNOW the name of. Look up the Right Ascension of that star on a cell phone app or a laptop planetarium program like this one:

Rotate the RA setting circle so it matches what the phone or laptop indicate. LOCK down the RA circle. Your scope is now adjusted to the sky and you can use the numbers on the DEC and RA to find other objects of known RA & DEC.

I have a Celestar 8 .I need a replacement circuit board mfg by Tangent technologies part #TM5-3 , Any ideas on where to find one since celestron has discontinued to service this model .

Two possibilities--

1. Place a want ad on It will cost you $12 to join and put up the ad. There might be one in working order somewhere --- used.

2. Contact Ron Sampson on the Yahoo LX200 tech group-- join for free and post a message for him. Ron can repair any of the electronic boards from various telescope brands.

Good luck.

Celestron advanced gt declination motor does not working

You did tighten the clutches?

If you did the DEC gears are either loose and not meshing or have broken.

Dr. Clay in Arkansas can repair this scope but it would cost several hundred dollars-- Celestron will probably sell you the parts to fix it. Here is their web site. You can also return the mount to them for repair.,220

Hand controller not working

You have broken something inside the hand controller-- the computer is in the hand controller NOT in the telescope. Contact Celestron for a replacement hand controller or advice.
