Question about Celestron CG-5 Mount Telescope

1 Answer

Can't release RA axis manually

When I loosen the RA lock, I can't rotate the RA axis. It seems fully engaged with the motor drive and won't budge. The motor drive seems to work normally and will rotate the RA axis.

I had one come in like this. AS you say the RA axis should be free to rotate in the RA housing when the clutch lever is released. The cylinder that the worm is machined on is binding on the axle. This doesn't overly effect normal tracking, but makes gross adjustments impossible. The only solution is to tear the mount down and finish the parts to eliminate the interference. Google astronomyboy for the how to. I have to warn you that I had to heat the cylinder and axle in the oven at 250 for 30 minutes before they would separate. don't use the wife's good oven mits!! When I finish these parts I use Soft Scrub (w/o bleach) as a grinding compound. It's basically bicarb in a jell. HTH, Geo.

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:

http://arnholm.org/astro/polar_alignment/index.html

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:
www.stellarium.org

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.

Don't think you will find a manual anywhere on the internet.

Try using Google but I don't think any exist.

A grinding noise indicates the gears are broken or not engaging properly. Sorry.

Printer error 07,010.43:722 on phaser 8560 xerox printer


Hi eduardo580:
This your problem.

7,010.43: The printhead is stuck in the tilted position, or is not able to tilt forward to the print position, due to problems.

1 1.
Reboot the printer.
2. Did this correct the problem? Complete. Go to Step 2.
2 1. Do the printhead lock arms rotate correctly? Go to Step 3. Repair/replace
the lock arms.
3 1. Has ink spilled ink around the printhead that
prevents the printhead from moving to its
center position? You should be able to
manually push the printhead right to left.
Clean the printhead area. Go to Step 4.
4 1. Does the X-axis motor drive the printhead to
it’s center position (so it can tilt forward)?
Go to step 5. Troubleshoot the X-axis drive.
5 1. Check the process gearbox for obstructions or damaged.
2. Ensure the gears are correctly aligned and homed.
3. Verify the process shaft and drive module shaft are at their home positions.
4. Did this correct the problem? Complete. Go to Step 6.
6 1. Has ink spilled on the head tilt gear on its
drive train (near left side of the printhead).
Clean the gears. Go to Step 7.
7 1. Use service diagnostics to run the Head Maintenance Wiper Clutch test.
2. Did the test fail?
Replace the wiper drive clutch. Go to Step 8.
8 1. Ensure the wiper is properly aligned.
2. Use service diagnostics to run the Wiper Drive Test.
3. Did the test fail?
Replace the exit module assembly. Go to Step 9.
9 1. Use service diagnostics to run the Load Maintenance Clutch test.
2. Did the test fail?
Inspect the maintenance drive system,
replace any defective parts. Go to step 10.
10 1. Verify the headtilt gear will engage. You can
manually set the headtilt gear.
2. Is the gear engaged properly?
Go to Step 11. Set the headtilt gear.
11 1. Use service diagnostics to run the Tilt Axis Drive test.
2. Did the test fail?
Replace the process gearbox.
Go to Step12.
12 1. Use service diagnostics to run the Process Motor test.
2. Did the test fail? Replace the process motor.

Hope this helps
