Question about Celestron NexStar 4 SE Telescope
Ensure focusing is spot on. if your image is a black dot surrounded by white light (like a doughnut) then your not in focus. Look at making a Hartmann Mask (really easy, just google for it), which fits over the front lens. It has 2 or more holes in it,this means when you look through the eye piece you will see double images, adjust focus until the images merge into one (if the images go further apart turn the focuser the other way), when they are merged remove the mask and presto you should be in optimum focus. Always remember telescopes are very sensitive and focussing requires delicate adjustments.
