Focus the celestron 21043


What power eyepiece are you using? Use an intermediate power eyepiece like 20mm. This will give you a really nice view of the Moon. Too high a magnification eyepiece, will cause blur views.

How do I change the battery in the Starfinder?


There is either a tiny slide out watch style battery holder, or something that unscrews with the watch battery inside.

You can down load a manual that shows the finder scope on the Celestron web site here:

I was just given a telescope and I need a reliable place to purchase parts. The main piece i'm looking for is an adjustor ring on the aiming scope and some different eye pieces


Meade may have the part, but I doubt it. You can call them here:

It might be easier just to replace the finder scope with one of these:

The view disappears when the eyepiece is inserted. There is no change in focus at all.


You must FIRST put the eyepiece in and THEN focus.

Take the scope outside during the daytime. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Practice focusing on a distant object. These articles may also help you.

Barska information


Barska is one of the many brands stamped on Asian made optics. Many of the models they sold were sold by Celestron and others. Go to the Celestron web sit and poke around in the download archives.for manuals and I'm sure you can find a manual that covers a model similar to your Barska. Start with the FirstScope series.

Their is a lot of excellent astronomy freeware available, just google for it.

Celestron has sold a few different 4.5" Newtonians. The finest was the C4.5 by Vixen of Japan. the manual is here:
http://downloads.celestron.com/Manuals/telescopes/c_series/31026_c4.5/manual/31026_c4.5.pdf

The FirstScope 114 is another and the manual is here:

SMA is for symetrical modified achromate. A Kellner eyepiece design. This is an inexpensive eyepiece, but not a bad one. A lunar filter is basically a sunglass lens for the eyepiece to cut down on the moon's brightness. ScopeStuff.com for camera adapters. HTH, Geo.
