Do you mean it "shakes" a little whenever you touch it? If it does try to set it up with the tripod legs NOT fully extended, and also hang a heavy weight hanging off the central bolt on the tripod. A bucket of sand would work.

Most scopes shake a little bit whenever they are touched but good ones with a good tripod stop shaking very quickly.

Do NOT hold on to the eyepiece when you are viewing an object at high magnification.

Can I use this telescope to view the solar eclipse and if so, how do I do this safely?


Only if you have a white light filter. You can make one or you can buy one, I have done both.
Here are a couple of helpful links. The first one explains white light filters.

This link is a place that sells the material.

4500 orbitor telescope


Download the manual in the link below. It is for the Orbitor 6000 which is a 6" Netownian Reflector telescope on an equatorial mount. Your telescope may have a Alta-Zimuth (AZ) mount instead, then click on the second link for the Celestron 114AZ. Although the telescopes are different from yours, the basic parts are very much similar and these manuals could be of help to you.

How do focus the telescope properly. i can never see anything through the telescope except for a blur. I wear glasses would that matter?


No glasses would not matter. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. Locate a local Astronomy club, the members will help you.

When I look in all I see is my eye??


Did you put an eyepiece into the focuser? You are NOT in focus -- practice focusing during the day time on a distant object. TURN the focusing knob to either the left or the right until you get a sharp image.

How far should your eye be away from the eye piece,We are having trouble seeing anything and we are new to a telescope


It depend on the eyepiece anywhere from 10-20mm away.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow -- practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

Have the telescope all set up but can't see anything out of it I'm pretty sure it's put together properly.


Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the scope. DO NOT use the 2 x barlow if you have one.

The end with the focuser is the UP end of the tube -- the mirror is on the bottom of the tube.

Hi, Bought a used telescope with a GT mount. The polar adjustment will not go below 46 degrees without binding. The binding screw only turns 1/4 turn in each direction and appears to be binding the...


This scope does NOT need to be polar aligned --

Here is the manual:
http://www.celestron.com/c3/images/files/downloads/1228334587_nexstargt.pdf

This is an ALT AZ goto scope. Read the manual above. You use the hand controller to move the scope in Altitude and Azimuth(left-right).

You must align it on 2 stars in order for it to has successful gotos.

Read the manual above.

Could i convert my c8 to a go to computer and what would be involved


No, sorry the old C8 cannot be converted.

You might consider selling the C8 and upgrading to a more recent goto scope, OR deforking the tube, and mounting it on a GOTO mount like the alt az Ioptron Pro, or an EQ mount like this one:

Celestron astromaster 114 EQ (problems zooming in)


Most telescopes do not have a zoom-- they have different numbered eyepieces that give different magnification-- you can buy a zoom eyepiece however.

From what you describe -- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope-- this is the LOWEST magnification. Now focus on the moon and or a distant land object during the day-- once it's in focus -- nice and sharp-- replace the eyepiece with the next LOWER number-- for more magnification. AND-- refocus the telescope for that eyepiece.
