Hi there,

I have also recently bought a Nexstar but mine is a 4SE. Im still pretty new at it myself but from what I understand, the Nexgps software is just the computer software to control the GPS unit from your PC - the same as the NexRemote software. If you dont have a GPS unit you have to purchase it as an extra so the software will only be useful if you have GPS.

The Nextour is just software that allows you to add objects you wish to see that the telescope will take you too in tour mode. Once you have it aligned of course.

I see this post was almost a year ago so you probably know all this by now.

Do you have any problems using the star align? Im really battling - gonna try 2 start align because it doesnt quite know where it is when I do the 3 star align.

Regards,
Bianca

The screws can be found at any hardware store, the eyepieces can be bought at many on-line retailers. Here is one:

The software is nothing but a planetarium program and you can download a better one for free here:

The spreader (tripod) is NOT really needed but will help stabilize the tripod-- you can make one that will work just fine out of wood.

Clear skies!

The lense for my Nexstar 6se was taken apart and I don't know how to put it back together properly. HELP!!


The eyepiece should NEVER BE DISASSEMBLED! Since it has multiple lenses inside no one can tell you how they go back together. This also voids the manufacturer warranty.

Go and buy another eyepiece and NEVER ever disassemble them. Only the OUTSIDE surface ever needs cleaning,

Here is one retailer who sells eyepieces.

I need a manual for optisan star 1000114II telescope


This appears to be a Newtonian style telescope on an equatorial mount-- they all work and assemble pretty much the same.

Look around the Meade manual web site for a similar assembly manual-- probably this one--

Cannot power up my Meade LX200


Check to make sure there are no bad connections under the swith itself. My Celestron C8 mount has similar problems and if I mess with the switch it will power up.
