Question about Meade ETX-80AT-TC Telescope
When i try to align the telescope the telescope instead of going up it goes down.Also when i try to search for a planet i dont see it i just see star.
I assume you are using the 497 hand controller? Planets will always be a little bit OFF since their orbits are calculated. You should be able to see Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn as a disk-- the other planets are very tiny and can be mistaken for a star.
Use the Automatic alignment feature and center the brightest nearest star. It will not be in the eyepiece. Be sure you calibrate motors, and train the drives, and the time, and date and site are accurate.
