I dont understand how to start and use my nexstar 4 SE computerized telescope


Basically, enter Time, Date, and Site-- level the tripod and do a 2 or 3 star alignment.

All of the manuals are on the Celestron web site here--

When looking through I can see the shadow of the little reflector inside it. We focused in on a star and saw it perfectly but we also couldn't figure out why we were seeing the shadow of the little mirror...


You are not in focus! Was the star ROUND and looked like a donut? Stars are pinpoints of light. They look the same through any size telescope-- exactly the same as without a telescope!

Try focusing on the moon next time.

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.

I have bought a Nexstar 80 from a garage sale. It did not come with an eye piece. I have one now. (Celestron 20mm) I still cannot focus on anything. Is there some other adapter that I need to focus?...


You need a DIAGONAL see this picture, it's basically an "l" shaped accessory that fits into the end of the telescope so you look DOWN into the eyepiece.

Celestron astromaster 114 EQ (problems zooming in)


Most telescopes do not have a zoom-- they have different numbered eyepieces that give different magnification-- you can buy a zoom eyepiece however.

From what you describe -- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope-- this is the LOWEST magnification. Now focus on the moon and or a distant land object during the day-- once it's in focus -- nice and sharp-- replace the eyepiece with the next LOWER number-- for more magnification. AND-- refocus the telescope for that eyepiece.
