Aiming with the computer

When ever I use the computer to tell me where a star is. It always seems to point me to an area with little or no stars. and yes every time I use the telescope I reset the time and date and area. However Im not sure if Im setting the star correctly. Can someoe tell me how to set the star or how to fix this problem?

Hi, My Star TSP100 printer always goes offline after computer shutdown


Hi Valued Star Customer

It seems like the USB host may be going into "sleep mode" and not awakening. Please contact Star Support at support@star-emea.com for documentation.

Best regards

When I have my 8mm or 4 mm all I see is black. any suggestions? with the naked eye I can see stars and with the aiming scope I see them but through main eyepiece I see nothing.


The finder scope must be aligned with the main tube. Get a bright star into the MAIN tube eyepiece. Then without moving the scope adjust the crosshairs in the small finder scope so they CROSS at the same star.

Telescope is definitely assembled correct but fail to see any magnification of light thru tube with use of either lens. Very clear nite but little moonlight, does that matter? Seems we get no magnification...


Did you try this during the day time. Stars are always just points of light no matter what telescope you use.

Try for the moon and or Jupiter which is up in the sky right now after dark. It looks like a BRIGHT star.

When I look at he stars through the telescope it looks no "bigger" than looking at the stars with the naked eye.


That's absolutely correct. Stars are so incredibly distant that they are effectively point light sources. Except for the largest telescopes ever built and those orbiting in space there are no telescopes which make stars seem bigger. But they will resolve what appears to be a single star into binaries, for example. Larger telescopes also gather far more light than the human eye, so will show objects which are far too faint to be seen with the naked eye.

Higher magnification eyepieces are mostly used for lunar and planetary observation, but the more magnified the image, the less bright it is. High magnifications also show up any optical flaws in the objective lens and atmospheric interference, so it's always best to use the lowest magnification which allows you to see the detail you're after.

When viewing venus or other stars there a black spot in the center of the object. It appears to be the 2nd mirror refleting to the main miror. what have I done incorrect?


You are NOT in focus. Turn the focus knob a little until you see a perfect "disk" for the planet. Stars are always POINTS of light, with a telescope or without a telescope.

Does the eyepiece have to be a in the slot a certain amount? Cant figure out why the stars are just little lights. I thought you were suppose to be able to view things in detail?


The stars are ALWAYS points of light. They are hundreds or thousands of light years away.

Download a free star chart at www.skymaps.com

Try to locate several of the M objects listed on the chart also look at the moon and the planets.

How does a telescope used, and can we see a star through it even if the star is really really far?


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object.

Stars ALWAYS look like -------------- stars no matter what telescope you use. They are all too far away to see as a "disk" , always just points of light.

The closest star is Proxima Centauri at 4.2 light years away.

That is about 25 TRILLION miles!

Trying to remove stains around the gas unit where temp is the hottest.


have you tried cooktop cleaner? this seams to work pretty good at getting stains out of stainless steal. (You know...cooktop cleaner is really just car wax if you had some try this on a little area and see how it works and if you like the results...there you go.) let me know what you think. But like i said always do a test point before doing the whole surface.

Can anybody help me to solve proffesor layton puzzle 46 the biggest star


Hints:

046 The Biggest Star
-------------------------------
1. The shape you're trying to make is a five-pointed star. It's easy enough
to form a star by just connecting five points, but you're aiming to make
the biggest start possible.
Look for "the five largest objects in space" and connect them together.
2. The answer for this puzzle requires you to draw your star upside down.
3. Remember that the planet we live on is also floating in space!


Solution:







046 The Biggest Star
------------------------------------------
Tree on the horizon acts as a star. Connect the 4 big stars and
tree in a star shape. 6 lines total.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya.

Nothing------ stars are always JUST STARS no matter what scope you are using. They are too far away to see a disk. Point this scope at Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mars-- or other star clusters and the moon.

Remember stars are always just points of light-------- using Google look up the "Messier Objects"--- there are 110 of them in the night sky at different times of the year.
