Seeing the stars


The stars will always be "points in the sky" no matter what telescope.
The stars should be sharp, focused points in the center of view (more blurry towards the edges because of the stock eyepieces and the fast telescope mirror) if not, the telescope may need collimation. (look at instructions and/or search online. Plenty of instructions on the net.)
  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

I have just bought an Astrolon telescope 288 power. I've assembled it following the instructions and I can't see anything. Inside the house I can pick few images but they appear upside down rather than...


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images --- it's normal.

Stars are always points of light no matter what telescope you own. Download this star chart:
www.skymaps.com

Objects in the sky are tiny, smaller than the tip of your finger held at arm's length, try for the moon FIRST which is large. Then try Jupiter which is that very bright "star" to the Southeast after dark.

I recently acquired a Konustart 700 telescope but I need the instruction manual and star maps to start learning how to use it. Can you help? Mike Garabedian


You will not find a manual for this small telescope. Even if you did it only contains assembly instructions. It will NOT teach you how to be an amateur astronomer.

Here is a free star chart you can download every month:
http://www.skymaps.com/downloads.html

Buy these two books-- Turn Left at Orion and Nightwatch.

Watch these video:
http://vimeo.com/channels/tas

and install this free planetarium software:

Need set up instructions & User guide. Using camera on telescope.


You will not find a specific manual for that small telescope. However Meade maintains a web site with manuals for their telescopes. Find one similar to yours and download it for free. AND-- forget about doing astro-photography with that telescope. You might get a picture of the moon but not much more.

Try to attend a local Astronomy club's star party in your area and ask questions.

I need simple set up instructions for australia


All GOTO scopes require a setup routine-- on my ETX 90 I must--

1. Train the drives

2. Set the time and the date, and the observing site in the hand controller

3. Level the tripod and the tube

4. Point the tube NORTH

5. And align and center on two stars BEFORE the telescope will find anything.

Read the manual TWICE--- and then practice inside before you take it outside at night.
