  1. Hey all, I was wondering if I could manually move the celestron nexstar series telescopes without any power? Sometimes (especially when storing) it is very tempting to move the mount. Is it ok to do this?
  2. Do I have to spend a lot of money on a specialist outdoor 12 dc supply? Or just putting the tpower ac dc adapter that I originally quoted in a shoe box will do the job?
  3. Thanks for the advice. Is 1.5 amps enough for the motor at max speed?
  4. Thank very much. I hope it will be Ok as well. Thank you.
  5. I am actually a Cypriot, I found the scope at a very affordable price during black Friday and this is just a matter of taking it back home :). So it will stay there forever, hopefully. Thanks very much!
  6. Hey friends, I just bought a celestron nexstar 6 se in uk, but I would like to take it with me on plane to Cyprus (EU). I got tickets with easy jet for this Christmas. How do you think I should carry everything on a plane? OTA+ mount is too big for cabin luggage. My plan is to separate ota and mount, I will carry the ota in my hang luggage while my girlfriend will carry the mount in her hang luggage and tripod in the checked luggage. What do you guys think? Thanks for your feedback
  7. Hey friends, I just bought a celestron 6 se and heard that their performance when powered with 8 AA batteries is quite poor. Since I will mostly be using the scope in my backyard, I do not need a portable power supply. I am planning to buy a dc adapter from mains, but I am not sure what to buy. Would you recommend something like this? https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B071WB3754/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A850CZQOZ8GYC&psc=1 what is the optimal current draw for the operation of these scopes? Cheers
