Question about Celestron NexStar 60 SLT (120 x 60mm) Telescope

1 Answer

Telescope I've just got a Celestron Nexstar 102 SLT. Complete novice. I am finding that after alignment the scope slews either vertically up or down before I have selected any target. I have to switch it off before the scope hits the mount. Any ideas ??

A low voltage power supply is the usual cause. You must use fresh batteries and or a seperate 12 volt power pack.

Also you must accurately;y do all the setup-- like Time, Date, and Site properly. Read the setup in the manual again.

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.

Aligning my scope and slewing problems


You need to synchronize the telescope with stellarium. Center the telescope on a known star, then select the same star on the laptiop and 'synch' with it.

You must set TIME, DATE, and SITE-- probably does not know your actual location. Read the manual and perform all of the setup procedures.

Some of these have a "starting position" again read the manual and make sure you are in the "home" position before you start the alignment. Read my TIP on my profile page about GOTO telescopes, and join the NEXSTAR forum on www.cloudynights.com

2-star alignment


I also have an 8i, but decided not to upgrade the controls yet. I've had my scope for about four years. I have experienced the same problem and am not sure what what causes it. Some nights, the scope tracks alignment all night, other times it does not. When the later occurs, the only thing that helps is to repeat the alignment picking new targets. One night, I had to repeat alignment 3-4 times. Also, I highly recommend a book by Michael Swanson, "The Nexstar User's Guide". It's an easy read, very specific and keeps the novice in mind. It should be included with every Nexstar sold. Go online to: http://www.Nexstarsite.com. Hope this helps. John

GoTo Problem


Be sure that the telescope is configured for EQ SOUTH mode to tell it is in the southern hemisphere. Once a star alignment is completed NEVER manually move the telescope. Use only the control panel to slew. Everytime the telescope is move by hand, the motors do not know it has been done, and assume it is still pointing at the old direction. Check the manual for setup.
