SOURCE: Focus knob on Celestron NexStar 5 does not appear

Does the focuser move in and out when you turn the knob? If it does then go outside during the day timne and practice focusing on a distant object. Use the eyepiece with the biggest number written on it.

This will give you the lowest magnification-- which is easier to focus.

Many times a bad cable will cause this. Also low batteries can cause this.

Contact Celestron and order a new cable. Use an external 12 volt power pack.

SOURCE: Celestron Nexstar 114gt telescope,hand controller lights up only

Do you have a fresh set of batteries in the scope? Better to use an outside 12 volt power pack with the Celestron 12 volt "cigarette" lighter cable.

This can be three things:

Low power

Bad cable from hand controller to scope.

Or a broken hand controller

Try fresh batteries first.

SOURCE: Celestron NexStar 8SE shows No

Reset the hand controller and reload the firmware. You will need a special cable available from Celestron to load the firmware. The software is available for free on the Celestron web site.

When I look through the view finder--everything is upside down???


Astro telescopes normally do show an inverted image, since for most purposes this does not matter. For terrestrial viewing, such as thru someone's window, you can buy an "erect image" or "correct image" prism which gives an upright image.

I don't know of such a thing for the finder scope, you would have to buy a new finder.

Cant see anything


Can you see anything during the day time? Practice focusing during the day time on a distant object using the eyepiece with the largest number written on it.

The moon should be your first target at night.

The hand control isn't working properly. Haven't used the telescope for 12 months. I have replaced the batteries. When I try to align to a star or other object, the direction buttons only work in one...


First thing to do is to buy a new hand controller cable from Meade, If this does not correct the problem then either the hand controller is defective, or something is broken inside the scope.

Cables are not expensive, call Celestron:

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.

NexStar 130SLT won't keep time when powered off. Is there an upgrade?


No, most scopes do not have built in GPS or a built in clock. It's normal to have to set, TIME, and DATE in the hand controller.

My Meade LX90 has a built in clock, it's an exception to the general rule. Most GPS computer GOTO scopes do not keep time-- you must wait a few minutes until the GPS acquires enough satellites to get the correct time, date, and location.
