You Just Bought an EQUATORIAL Telescope Mount!


Even though we warned you not to do this, you bought one anyway! Beginners should never buy an EQ telescope mount as their first telescope. It's too late now; so I guess we will need to teach you how to use it!

Equatorial mounts move in a way that seems not to very intuitive. Unlike the easy Alt AZ mount which moves up and down and left and right, the EQ mounted telescope seems to move in TWO dissimilar directions at the same time.

Additionally you must first polar align the mount on the North star Polaris before you can use it. SEE! we told you not to buy it!

Here are the steps to roughly polar align the telescope so you can use it. If it is motorized the single Right Ascension motor will keep the sky object inside the eyepiece for long periods of time. If you do not have a Right Ascension motor, the slow motion RA knob can be slowly turned to keep the sky object centered in the eyepiece.

Begin by leveling the mount and tripod. Move the entire mount and tripod so it is pointing roughly to North, as close as possible using the steps below or a compass. Don't forget to adjust for your magnetic deviation. My location's compass reading is about 5 degrees away from true North. This is called magnetic deviation. You can find your location's deviation on the internet. Then proceed with the steps below.

First, adjust the Declination to the latitude for your observing site. Declination is the angle that the scope is pointing UP, and it's the same as your latitude. For example Dallas, Texas is about 32 degrees North latitude, adjust the scope so the small indicator reads 32 degrees. By the way, the North star in Dallas, TX is about 32 degrees above the horizon. Your latitude matches the elevation of Polaris (the North star) above the horizon.

Second, either look through the polar alignment scope buried in the axis of the telescope mount, or look along side the axis, and get the star Polaris lined up in the cross-hair of the polar alignment scope, or as best you can by looking along the side of the mount axis, or lining it up using your compass.. This will put the scope to within about 3/4 of 1 degree of the TRUE North celestial sphere. This is good enough for VISUAL observation, but NOT good enough to do astro-photography..

Adjust the DECLINATION up or down, and move the entire mount left or right until you can see Polaris as indicated above, or it is lined up as close as possible.

Now you are roughly polar aligned. Now you can move the tube around by loosening the Right Ascension lock, and or the Declination lock until your sky object appears in the small finder scope mounted on top of the main telescope tube.(DO NOT MOVE THE MOUNT, and the counter weight should never be higher than the telescope tube) Lock down the scope in both axis and use the fine adjustment RA and DEC knobs to center the target. Again, DO NOT move the mount or tripod. The mount should still be pointing at Polaris.

This web site illustrates this procedure:
http://www.astronomy.net/articles/4/polaralign.html

also this web site

http://www.telescopes.com/telescopes/polaralignmentarticle.cfm

You should be able to keep an object within the field of view of the eyepiece by slowing turning the Right Ascension slow motion control knob-------- IF you are actually accurately polar aligned. Small adjustments may also be needed with the DEC slow motion knob since you are not exactly polar aligned using this rough alignment technique.

However it can be used successfully for visual observation. Your scope will now track the motion of the stars as they move across the sky.

Hope that helps you!

Clear Skies!

What is the master XY SCALE


Press *28* then touch the adjust, increase/decrease the value to x scale to adjust the position of x axis, also increase/decrease the value to y scale to adjust the position of y axis

DW079 CALIBRATION


Here is how you get your laser into adjustment modeY axis; Power and scan key at same time, unit then will tip from Y1 to Y2, then recenter. use up and down arrows to bring laser into adjustment. Let unit stabilize for 30 seconds, press scan key, you will get a continuos beep, now at same time press down arrow key. This will store your new calibration.To get X axis into adjustment mode power on and up arrow at same time, and for Z axis type laser onto Z axis and use adjustment procedure for Y axis. Saving your calibrations is the same as in Y axis. Hope this helps you

Where is the declination clutch located?


RA moves the polar axis--- and DEC moves the scope from side to side.

There are two knobs that turn these two axis.

Need owners manual for Venture RX-7 telescope


You will not find a manual. BUT you do not need one.

This is a very simple reflector telescope on an Equatorial mount. The mount must be polar aligned in order to properly use the scope. Read my TIP in my profile section about aligning an Equatorial mount.

The major steps are:

Align the small finder scope with the main telescope tube on a distant object.

Set the Declination axis to your Latitude.

Align the main tube with the axis of the mount.

Point the entire mount toward the North Star Polaris.

Use the fine RA & DEC knobs to center Polaris in the eyepiece.

See this web site and my tips--
http://www.astronomy.net/articles/4/polaralign.html

This is why we NEVER recommend an EQ mount to a beginner. Polar Alignment just introduces one more FRUSTRATION to someone new to the Astronomy hobby.

The eyepieces simply go into the focuser. The Larger the number written on the eyepiece the LESS the magnification.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece with the largest number.

The manual WILL NOT tell you how to find those small dim objects in the sky. It's just assembly instructions.It does not tell you how to become an amateur astronomer.

Locate a local Astronomy club and seek advice from the members, who will be glad to help you with your telescope.

Don't think you will find a manual anywhere on the internet.

Try using Google but I don't think any exist.

A grinding noise indicates the gears are broken or not engaging properly. Sorry.
