There is a good website for beginners with these small scopes at THIS LINK

To start out, try the scope with the LEAST powerful eyepiece (the one with the biggest number) in daylight (but never point it anywhere near the Sun). You need to zero in the finder scope in daylight too, or you will never be able to find objects with the main scope at night. If you got a Barlow lens with this scope, throw it away.

    You want the ten second guide to singing lead in La Traviota? It is more complicated (and eventually more rewarding) than that. Astronomy is not a video game. You have to put in some time and learn some stuff before you can do even the basics. That's what makes it fun, really.There is no feeling of accomplishment without actully accomplishing something. And that is what the website link is for. There are pages and pages of good advice there. I'm not going to try to retype it all in a forum message.

Lube stain on Secondary mirror on CPC 1100


Probably lubricant out-gassing which can collect than drip. Your choices are to contact Celestron service or do it yourself. DON"T PANIC! It is not that hard if you are brave.
1. Use a piece of masking tape on the corrector to the side of the housing.slice it carefully where they meet. This will insure correct alignment with the primary when you put it back together. (Correctors are sorted then oriented to,(as the name says) correct the primary.
2. Remove the corrector plate. Mark any shim locations with a marker on the outside of the corrector plate (remove after re-installation)
3. Make a solution of 50% distilled water and 50% isopropyl alcohol. (97% pure or better- I use 99% pure alcohol) 1 drop of dish detergent may need to be added,depends on the stain.
4. Rinse the secondary until grease is gone. Do not rub mixture on mirror, just keep rinsing.
5. Rinse with pure distilled water,gently stand corrector up to dry.
6. Assemble the scope. Use the same water/alcohol mixture to clean up the outside of the corrector. Dampen cotton balls and wipe with VERY light pressure.Wipe once, throw the cotton ball out and use a fresh one. Do not make the cotton balls too wet, you don't want moisture to get under the corrector.
7. If the stain is really tough, acetone may be used without damage to the mirror surface.
8. Use surgical gloves to avoid fingerprints.
9. Lots of towels at work area in case the corrector slips out of your grip.
10. If you put it together correctly, minimum collimation will be required.
There have been a number of these problems cropping up lately, I think Synta is using inferior grease now.If you are really brave, clean the old grease
off and add one drop of lithium grease. Run the primary through focus range a few times to distribute.
If you do this, you can later flock the inside of your scope to increase contrast.

I Have a code that i got from a reader. (PO420) I don't know what this is


this obd2 trouble code can help you understand the meaning of code...
http://www.chinasinoy.com/service/how-to-understand-trouble-codes-37.html
for this code you can try:

Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold, pipes, catalytic converter. Repair as required.

Use a scope to diagnose the oxygen sensor operation (Tip: The oxygen sensor in front of the catalytic converter normally has a fluctuating waveform. The waveform of the sensor behind the converter should be more steady).

Inspect the downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2), replace if necessary

Replace the catalytic converter

I need a manual for a bushnell 565 model 78-5656. Can't find it on your opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html web site. can you help me? need to know how to set it up and only have a french manual...


If it's not on the Optics Planet site then none exist on the internet-- (in English)

Just download one that is similar to your scope-- refractors go together in a similar fashion -- and reflectors go together in a similar fashion.

Or you can find a local Astronomy club and the members will help you. Just about any amateur astronomer can put these scopes together without a manual. In fact the manual only helps with assembly-- it does not tell you how to use the scope to find those small dim objects in the night sky-- and it does not tell you which eyepiece to use or how to focus the scope.

How to use the scope is only learned by practicing and getting local help.

Watch and listen to the audio- video podcasts listed below. Many of them are designed to help beginners with the Astronomy hobby.

Not really a problem. Just looking for a manual so I understand how all of the adjustment functions work.


Have you tried contacting BSA directly? I searched for an on-line manual which you may have also.
I didn't have any luck, but I do know they provide on-line manuals for many of thier products.

From my childhood itself I started being in the deep thought, I get very depress as I really want to stop those thinking. If some one says something good for me or even bad I keep on thinking on that &...


Well it sounds like you trusted him and had faith in him because you believed he like you for you. Also, I'm assuming you get a little lonely sometimes, like we all do. As humans we hunger for other humans affection and acceptance. It's normal. I'm sure you're a gorgeous girl and have nothing to worry about, but it sounds like he isn't interested. That's not his fault or yours. It's just that you guys don't work together because of differences.
Next, it sounds like you really love this guy. You have strong feelings for him. It's understandable because (as I stated above) you really trusted him and cared for him. What you have to do in order to help yourself is let go of the friendship. If he's hurt you and taken advantage of your feelings, then it'll be hard to let go of them. So, if I were you I'd give up on him and stop talking to him forever, or at least until you don't love him anymore. Get rid of his pictures, phone number, email address, delete him on facebook. Delete everything about him in your life. Make sure he's only a memory. That's the best way to get over someone.

What lens do i insert into scope to view the moon


The moon is big so use the 25mm. The Barlow will have a multiplication marking on it 2x 3x etc. A 2x Barlow lens will effectively double the power of the eyepiece you are using. Do not use the erecting eyepiece for anything other than land viewing. Erecting eyepieces generally reduce the amount of light reaching your eye and thus reduce brightness of the faint objects in the sky.
So basically just place the 25 mm lens in the focuser and point the scope at the moon and you will be amazed at what you can see and how bright it is.
