The computer asks the observer to align the scope onto three bright objects. I could not make out the nebula but I could see the line of three stars and the 4 stars of the trapezium at its heart. Takes you on a tour of the best objects in the sky at the time of observation.
Assemble tripod by spreading the legs. Place accessory tray on top of center leg. It thus knows all that is needed to compute the azimuth and altitudes of other objects in its catalogue. However the 9mm eyepiece at x72 could not really give enough magnification to see Saturn at its best and so I added a Televue x2. I particularly like the fact that it allows you to select the objects. The computer will be quite happy and say align successful – even though it could be some way out.
Down and clockwise it slewed. Celestron Communication Protocol Manual 8 pages.
You are then asked to centre it in the field of view of the telescope. Celestron chd refractor telescope instruction manual, 18 pages.

More obviously celeston does allow the tube, if pushed sideways, to move significantly more than if a dual fork were used.
An Alt-Azimuth mounts follow an object across the sky by using two motions: The computer automatically reduces the slewing speed at this point. Selecting from the Constellation list gives the objects seen in each constellation.
When I aligned on it I realised it was the planet Saturn!

The new SkyAlign alignment procedure has never failed to give a successful alignment first time and has always thereafter brought the chosen objects into the field of view of the 26mm eyepiece. I am surprised was missed out manhal Messier and it is not included in the Caldwell catalogue either.
I was then asked which method of alignment I wished to use.
Page 2 Before you can nexetar observing,you must setup your hand control, align your finderscope and align your telescope. It must be correctly located as I had no problem in adding Barlow lenses or using a heavy 2 inch eyepiece. The optics of this scope are clearly up to the mark! Do so without moving its position.
Mankal Nextstar range uses the same computerised mount and tripod on which is mounted a range of telescopes: As we will see below, the finder is hardly used except when initially aligning the scope. Though the scope comes with two 1.

For this purpose they are vastly better than the cheap 6 x 30 which in practice are sometimes stopped down to nearer 10 straight through finders. As I hope I have made clear, the optics are of such good performance that it will virtually always be the atmosphere that limits the image quality.
I did not find this a significant problem. Earlier in the day I had aligned the red dot finder with the optical axis of the telescope by observing the top of a distant street lamp. This reduces the time for its calculations to determine which objects have been selected by the observer as it can eliminate many possibilities.
Apart from a few very minor caveats, this scope performed better that I ever expected. We will see how the telescope performed in practice below. Page of 4 Go. So far, very good. A few small points: One disadvantage of an Alt-Az mount is that the field of view rotates preventing the taking of long exposure astro -photographs.
For example, as an object passes transit, the altitude of the object does not change significantly. Hold the telescope fork arm and place.
