Question about Meade Infinity 114EQ-DH Telescope

1 Answer

Having trouble getting a Celestron Nexstar 114 to locate even guide stars? When I get an "alignment success" then pick an object,say m42 it takes off like it's looking for m42 but just keeps going and at the same time the hand controller reads "align again" or "no response"? Any help out there on this one? Thanks...JMR

Have you followed the instructions in the manual? The first thing to do is setup with the time, date and location, then select a 3 or 2 star alignment method to calibrate. Use ONLY the hand controller to move the scope to the stars.

First thing to do is to buy a new hand controller cable from Meade, If this does not correct the problem then either the hand controller is defective, or something is broken inside the scope.

Cables are not expensive, call Celestron:

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.

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

Start Align with NexStar 4SE


Did you enter the correct TIME, DATE, and LOCATION? and yes you may have aligned on to the wrong stars -- they need to be "near" the center.

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

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.
