Did you read the manual completely-- most of the DS telescope series require that you-- eneter Time, Date, and Site, set Daylight Savings Time, and TRAIN the scope.

Then you select Automatic alignment and center the two alignment stars-- these scopes usually have a HOME position which you should read about.

Astromaster 76 image 45 degrees off horizontal, although eyepiece set at same angle for comfort of viewing .how can i keep eye peice set and see image correctly i.e 90 degrees from horizontal


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's normal.

However, you can buy and erecting diagonal like the one below for terrestrial viewing.

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


First do a RESET on the hand controller and make sure TIME, DATE, and SITE, are correct.

If this does not work then RE-load the firmware in the hand controller. If that fails contact Celestron customer service.

What eyepieces sizes have you used?
Try using the largest eyepieces you have (20mm, 25mm or higher) for a wide field of view. If your eyepiece is to small (maybe 15mm or below) you will have too much magnification and the moon will be a blur.

Computer not accurate


Looking through the manual (link follows) please check that you set the time in 24 hour clock with timezone correctly. Also the date & of course location. I see no reset function in the manual but I guess leaving the batteries out for a while will reset it. Manual link: http://www.bushnell.com/customer_service/manuals/telescopes/78-8876_1LIM.pdf Also although it says you do not need to know where the stars are you're aligning to it's good to have some idea that you're actually aligning with "Mizar" or whatever. You can find maps of the night sky where you are on this link: http://www.wunderground.com/sky/index.asp Finally check if there is a local astronomy group that you can join, they are always ready to encourage & help people.
