  1. Oh man..... I got some learning on filters it sounds like... Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk
  2. So glad to get so many people posting on the power issues, deffinity makes me feel better that my scope isn't a POS. Sooo I stayed up late last night and decided to try to play around a bit inside by my large glass door. I did a quick one star alignment, also this time typed in a normal time not military, and it seemed to work! I typed in a messier number a bit under my alignment star. I ended up being able to see the edge of it in my scope and I only had to move over a bit. Very excited, and I will getting my new power supply set up and ready to go for our next clear night. Anyone have any suggestions on filters? I have the celestron lense and filter kit. What color is best for nebula viewing? Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk
  3. Ok. I tried a quick one star align with Polaris and it accepted. Tried to go to another location using the nextstar and I think im still off. I do think power might be a issue, I can see the screen dimming while moving. Also it's a good 20 degrees outside. Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk
  4. Also it's only asked me my city and state. It's never asked me any actual coordinates Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk
  5. Yes, the view finder is good. The object is always in my lense after I use the view finder. Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk
  6. Maybe power can be my issue. I have a batter pack and my motor does seem to run slow when it's cold out. I belive I'm level and I use a few different apps on the phone. I will look into power options. How about when aligning a specific star, do I need to use a specific size magnification to center the object? Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk
  7. Ugh..... [emoji25] I'm trying to stay positive and focused. This is basically my first decent telescope and I would really like to start viewing and figuring out thr sky more. I feel my next star system should help me find items and learn where to look...... But I can't figure it out!!!! I feel I am choosing the correct alignment stars, (even though I will admit I've had trouble with that a bit) I am not sure do I need to use a large lense when aligning? Any help or suggestions please would make me a happy girl! [emoji7] Anywhooo my telescope is a Celestron starseeker 130 (though I can only find info for a orion starseeker 130) and has the next star GT. Thanks in advanced [emoji106] [emoji106] [emoji106] [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk
