My other half bought me (us) a Celestron 130 for my birthday recently.
I have watched tutorials and done a lot of reading about collimating and various other tips since alongside several hours peering through the telescope.
I can achieve a very crisp image of the moon which is awesome. However, trying to get a decent focus on Mars/Jupiter Saturn is proving very frustrating. The only non-blurred image of any of them is a single white-point, non dissimilar to what I can see via the naked eye.
i’ve tried both the 20mm & 10mm lenses and adjusted the focus in and out all the way.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
thank you, in advance.
I am hoping someone here may be able to offer some help or advice. I have submitted a support ticket with Celestron but I am still waiting for a reply and would really like to get this working ready for the next clear sky!
I recently brought a starsense but have not been able to use it because it comes up with the following errors,
Err: Model Num
The telescope model could not be read and initialization cannot proceed.
An unexpected error occurred that may cause the HC to not opperate normally.
When updating the controller and camera it finishes succesfully but when I check for new updates it proceeds to install the same one again and again.
I can still control the mount and I think the camera tried to do an alignment in my room.
I have a Celestron Nexstar 6SE.
Just thought I'd share this in case you haven't seen it already. A recent (September 2020) article added to the Celestron 'Knowledge Base' on collimating SCTs.
I don't claim to have seen all articles on collimation, but this is defs one of the best that I have seen.
