Question about Celestron PowerSeeker 114 EQ Telescope
How do i set the scope up to the correct settings as i live in Oxford UK
and reading a variety of books they all say that i must set the mounts up to my latitude etc but being a total novice i am lost in all the jargon
any help would be most gratfull
The ALTITUDE adjustment matches your LATITUDE. I live at 32.5 degrees North latitude. So the scope is first adjusted to 32.5 degrees UP.
Then the Right Ascension is point to Polaris the North star by MOVING the entire scope and mount.
Read my Equatorial mount TIP on my profile page, and read this web site.
