My Celestron 127eq telescope's RA setting circle isn't moving properly with the mount when I try and adjust my RA. It lags behind, seemingly sticking onto the bottom of my mount. What should I do to fix this and get my setting circle right?
Solved: How to open Celestron Firmware Manager when the Jar file that was unzipped from the download can't be made executable I.E. into an exeBy StarGazingSiouxsie
I told you it wouldn't be long before I started asking for help!
I can download CFM from Celestron's support page. I download the zipped file, extract the contents but that's as far as I can get.
The file in the unzipped file shows as a 'Jar' file instead of an exe. That naugghty little jar justs sits there and will not dance for me.
I am running Windows 10. I have latest version of Java installed. I have tried turning around 3 times with one hand on my head and one on my tummy. No luck.
I am neuro A typical, for the record, so that accounts for why I absolutely MUST know how to (please) open this file even though the odds are my kit is up to date.
Seriously, this is driving me nuts. I found stargazerslounge via my searches in trying to solve this problem and I thought to myself what a nice vibe this ite has. so I joined.
Any help / advice / chocolate (milk or dark) , money (PP or cash ) all very gratfefully and cheek kissingly received.
I have recently purchased a Celestron NXT130 and have the following questions regarding planet viewing. I have obseved the moon, Jupiter and Saturn using the 25mm lens ( with and without the Barlow) with good results. However, when I switch from the 25mm to the 9mm lens (with or without the Barlow), I either can no longer see the planet (Jupiter and Saturn) or cannot properly focus (moon). I can understand that the moon may be too close for the 9mm to be effective, but I am a bit stumped about the other planets.
Looking for advice.

When I align my Celestron CPC 1100 EdgeHD through Starsense Auto Allignment, after Completing the successful plates resolve in the handset, you have to press enter to continue to the second stage of selecting a bright star to point scope towards it, which I used to do in the past. Today after successful plate resolve, when I tried to press enter it takes you back to the first screen “Star Sense Ready” instead of selecting the brightest star option. Can anyone help and advise where am I making mistake ?
