After getting scope on bullseye,what do they mean by,Zero setting of scale grip? my scope is a Nikon Bolt XR, for crossbows


you need to decide what distance you want bullseye to be. the arrow in flight is either rising or falling. if you get bullseyes at say 50 yards you will be low at 25 yards (arrow rising) and low at 75 yards (arrow falling). this is due to the scope is mounted higher than the arrow.

I don't know how to use your telescope Please help me


We will need much more information-- what type of scope do you own? A refractor? a reflector?

And is it mounted on an altitude azimuth mount or an EQ - equatorial mount?

Any manual for a 70mm (refractor?) style telescope will show you how to set this up. You never said what type of mount the scope is on-- Altitude-Azimuth, up down left right--- or an equatorial mount??

Anyway Meade has manuals for all of their telescopes available for free download. Go to the Meade site listed below and look under the REFRACTOR heading (or the 4.5 inch REFLECTOR) heading for one that is similar to your scope. They are all assembled and used in a similar fashion.

and look at my TIPS on my profile page-- and read this web site-- to learn about the types of telescopes and mounts:

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.

Thermostat resets itself to 85 degrees a couple hours after I set it to 74 degrees


To manually operate the thermostat set the system to cool and fan to auto then press the HOLD button one time then release, you will see the hold word on the screen after that up the UP or DOWN arrows is setting the desired temperature.

Celestron 114EQ polar setting and Equatorial settings


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.

The azimuth adjustment keys don't work


Send it back along with the hand controller describing the problem. Could be several things including a bad hand controller. If there is a local astronomy shop nearby take the scope there and ask to try one of the hand controllers in the shop and test it. If it now works you just need to buy another hand controller.

Otherwise send it in for repair

The Azimuth Dial isn't firmly attached cause altitude cannot be fixed to an angle


Most of the small telescopes setting circles really cannot be used to find anything--- just not accurate enough---

Try using a star chart -- and star hopping --- to what you want to see.
