Balancing my Telescope

I'm trying to balance my Celestron AstroMaster 70 EQ refractor telescope, but the manual is confusing. This is the first telescope I've owned, and could really use some help.

WHEN I LOOK AT A DIFFERENT OBJECT THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME


  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

Not able to see anything would like how to use cerlestron EQ 114


This is a small reflector style telescope on an equatorial mount. The mount and tripod must be polar aligned in order to be used. Read this:
http://arnholm.org/astro/polar_alignment/index.html

Simply pt the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope, take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object like a building.

Celestron's manuals are located on this web site-- find your scope and download one for free:

Latittude adjustment bolt jammed tight on Celestron 130 EQ, I am thinking of taking it to a repair shop, so I don't damage it in attempting to loosen it (its very jammed)


A machine shop should be able to remove the bolt and re-tap the hole if needed if it is stripped.

OR- you can improve this telescope by improving the MOUNT to something like this.
