Tripod must be level, scope must be in the home position. There is a drive training session described in the manual which you MUST do. Time, Date, and SITE, must all be correct.

Do a two star alignment after the above.

New out of the box, our Celestron Nexstar 4se does not ask for our location. Cannot find it anywhere in the controls to input, therefore it will not align.


RESET the hand controller-- then turn it off-- wait 15 seconds and turn it back on. If this does not fix it the firmware will need to be reloaded. You will need a special cable from Celestron to update the firmware.

I would simply return the scope and get another one-- if the scope is new.

The Celestron Nexstar 4SE makes a weird cracking noise when you press the left or right arrows on the controller. I tried taking it off of the tripod, and it still will not rotate left or right, even if...


Is the AZimuth clutch locked down? Then either a gear is broken inside or the worm gear inside has slipped and is not engaing. You can return these to Celestron for repair, here:

I have a CPC11GPS telescope that was working the last time I used it, which was 6 months ago. It is in NEW NEW condition. I pulled it out last night, turned it on, allowed the system to align itself using...


The clutch is not engaging in RA. Maybe the gears are not actually meshing together? A loose worm gear?

You can open it up and look and see if anything obvious is loose. Otherwise it's a trip back to Celestron.

Hi there,

I have also recently bought a Nexstar but mine is a 4SE. Im still pretty new at it myself but from what I understand, the Nexgps software is just the computer software to control the GPS unit from your PC - the same as the NexRemote software. If you dont have a GPS unit you have to purchase it as an extra so the software will only be useful if you have GPS.

The Nextour is just software that allows you to add objects you wish to see that the telescope will take you too in tour mode. Once you have it aligned of course.

I see this post was almost a year ago so you probably know all this by now.

Do you have any problems using the star align? Im really battling - gonna try 2 start align because it doesnt quite know where it is when I do the 3 star align.

Regards,
Bianca

Be sure that the Azimuth Axis is Lock, you migth want to try and move the telescope in the Azimuth to make sure it is it is locked. Be carful not to force it. I have seen on some post where the locking part of the Azimuth somtimes breaks. and the Azimuth Axis will just spin freely Locked down or not.

The hinge should be to the north. An imaginary line drawn perpendicular from the center of the tilt plate should point to Polaris (the North Star).
