GoTo Motor Before attaching the Dec. By doing this you will adjust the latitude of the mount. More precise polar alignme Summary of the content on the page No. The brightest and most beautiful deep-skyobjects will auto- matically be chosen by the hand controller for your viewing pleasure. You'll be delighted with beautiful views of the night sky when using the SkyView Pro 8 Equatorial Reflector Telescope. What to Expect So what will you see with your telescope? This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. When the telescope is pointed north of the celestial equator, values of the declination setting circle are positive; when the telescope is pointed south of the celestial equator, values of the declination setting circle are negative.
Double Stars - Includes 55 of the best double stars to view. This warranty is for the benefit of the original retail purchaser only. Then the Orion SkyView Pro Equatorial Mount could be right for you. The first and third alignment stars should have declination coordinates between +30° and +70° or between -30° and -70°. Doing so will undo the polar alignment. The optical tube is aluminum and has a smooth painted finish that is fairly scratch-resistant.
Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are the brightest objects in the sky after the Sun and the Moon. Choose a desired rate between 0 slowest and 9 fastest. This is the black knob with the threaded shaft protruding through it. The controller will provide a list of stars that can be used as the second alignment star.

Views of the planets, Moon, galaxies, nebulae, stars, and star clusters will all be as close as the touch of a button. You can now proceed to power the system and utilize the many functions of the GoTo hand controller. Using the finder scope, point the telescope at this star and center it on the crosshairs. One-star alignment: Choose a star close to the Celestial Equator Dec close to 0°. If Polaris moves away from the center when the telescope is pushed as in Figure 20, loosen the adjustment screws near the back of the tube and tighten the adjustment screws closer to the front of the tube Figure 21b. Smudges on the tube can be wiped off with a soft cloth and a household cleaner such as Windex or Formula 409. .
You may have to adjust the way the gears mesh by tightening or loosening the socket-headcap screw that is used to attach the R. Carefully connect the 4-pinrectangular connector attached to the R. This time, be sure the stars indicated on the star chart are in fact objects. Attach the tube rings to the tube ring mounting plate using the attachment screws that are on the tube rings. Orient the equatorial mount so that the post on the tripod head lines up between the azimuth adjustment knobs on the equatorial mount Figure 2.
Once you have installed the GoTo by tightening or loosening the socket-head cap screw that motor so the gears mesh properly, you can apply a very small is used to attach the R. If you are unsure or uncomfortable about making optical alignment adjustments, we strongly recommend that you just leave it alone.

Setting Up and Using the Equatorial Mount.
If your map or atlas gives coordinates in decimal values i. Site Selection Pick a location away from street lights and bright yard lighting. It also is a good idea to keep the scope covered until the Sun sets so the tube does not heat greatly above the temperature of the outside air. Rotate the reticle so the constellations depicted match their current orientation in they sky when viewed with the naked eye. No tools are needed other than the ones provided. Testing for Cone Error This test is performed at night using two bright stars located on opposite hemispheres of the night sky. Look for software that is compatible with the Celestron dinates the telescope is currently pointed to.
The description below will lead you through a step-by-stepprocedure on how to perform the three-staralignment. Look into the viewing hole of the collimating tool to see if the reflections have moved closer together or further apart. These instructions will help you install and properly use the SkyView Pro GoTo system. Then connect the entire camera adapter, with eyepiece inside, to the T-ring.

This will determine which direction left or right moves Polaris closer to the center of the eyepiece field of view.
If you can not see Megrez a 3. To change eyepieces, first loosen the securing thumbscrews on the diagonal. GoTo motor assembly meshes with the brass gear.
