Again, indications of a good mirror and collimation. Perhaps my best view ever of the Orion Nebula from a town location was when there were thick clouds scudding across the celesteon leaving gaps perhaps 30 degrees across.

Earlier in the day I had aligned the red dot finder with the optical axis of the telescope by manial the top of a distant street lamp. As an Alt-Az mount requires the use of both motions to track it needs to be aligned before it can track.

I thus also tested the two eyepieces in a Takahashi FS, an apochromatic refractor with essentially perfect optics at a price! The telescope will then slew to a second star and ask you to centre and align mznual. It must be correctly located as I had no problem in adding Barlow lenses or using a heavy 2 inch eyepiece.

From these, it can calculate the angle between each pair of objects.

To give a mm focal manhal in a short tube, a lens is incorporated onto the mm design. A small ring on the centre of the primary mirror helps to carry out collimation if necessary.

During moments of very good seeing I could see the Cassini division and possibly a hint of a band around the surface — by this time the skies were clearing somewhat. So far, very good.

This is certainly better than the aluminium tripods that have been used on this class of telescope before but it is still very light. Setting up and aligning the scope. I set up the telescope with the tube pointing roughly south at 45 degrees. A little too clever. You are then asked to centre it in the field of view of the telescope.


Lets have a look at the innovative method that this telescope can use for alignment. Page of 4 Go. They looked fine to me. Before you can begin using your NexStar SLT, you must setup your computerized hand control and go through the SkyAlign alignment procedure.

Enter the easy align mode. The computer automatically reduces the slewing speed at this point. I believe this and the other telescopes in the Nextstar range will be able to painlessly introduce many newcomers to the night sky.

The Alt-Azimuth mount and tripod. Testing manul eyepiece in the provided telescope will be fine to detect this, but it is harder to test other aberrations in this way as a Newtonian, no matter how well made, will exhibit some coma away form the field centre and stellar images begin to look like little comets.


Observing ones eye reflecting in the secondary and primary mirrors through the eyepiece indicated that the collimations was not far off. It thus knows all that is needed to compute the azimuth and altitudes of other objects in its catalogue.

With this information, the telescope can create a model of the This obviously limits the weight that can be supported – to around 5kg. So the first accessory that a purchaser should buy is a x2 Barlow. Here is a work-around that will give the scope an approximate tracking rate if you have a reasonable knowledge of the sky. The tube can be moved in altitude relatively easily, but the clutch seems much tighter in azimuth and I have only ever moved it under motor control.

Before you can begin observing,you must setup your hand control, align your finderscope and align your telescope. A red dot finder appears to project a red dot on the sky which is aligned with the target star or planet. Add to my manuals Add. It then asked me the date and time which I entered using the numeric keypad. Don’t have an account?
