Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the Celestron world of amateur astronomy. Some of the terms and parts described in these instructions may be new to you, so a few commonly used terms youll want to be familiar with are defined below. Equatorial mount a type of mounting that allows the telescope to be aligned with the earth's axis in order to track the motion of the sky. Focal length - the distance from the optical center of the lens to the point where the incoming light rays converge, creating a clear, focused image. Primary Mirror - It gathers incoming light to create a sharply focused image. Reflecting telescope an optical design in which light is reflected off of a curved mirror that converges the light into a small disk that is then magnified using an eyepiece. First, you need to take the time to familiarize yourself with the parts of your PowerSeeker telescope, then assemble it, following the easy instructions provided. Next, read over the operating instructions and become familiar with how your telescope works, to prepare for hours of viewing enjoyment. CAUTION: READ THIS SECTION BEFORE USING YOUR TELESCOPE Your PowerSeeker telescope is designed to give you hours of fun and rewarding observing. However, there are a few things to be aware of before using your telescope that will ensure your safety and protect your equipment. NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN WITH THE NAKED EYE OR WITH A TELESCOPE. NEVER POINT YOUR TELESCOPE AT THE SUN UNLESS YOURE USING THE PROPER SOLAR FILTER. PERMANENT AND IRREVERSIBLE EYE DAMAGE MAY RESULT. NEVER USE YOUR TELESCOPE TO PROJECT AN IMAGE OF THE SUN ONTO ANY SURFACE, OR USE AN EYEPIECE SOLAR FILTER OR A HERSCHEL WEDGE. INTERNAL HEAT BUILD-UP CAN DAMAGE THE TELESCOPE AND/OR ANY ACCESSORIES THAT MAY BE ATTACHED TO IT. NEVER LEAVE YOUR TELESCOPE UNSUPERVISED, ESPECIALLY WHEN CHILDREN ARE PRESENT. THIS ALSO HOLDS TRUE FOR ADULTS WHO MAY NOT BE FAMILIAR WITH THE CORRECT OPERATING PROCEDURES FOR YOUR TELESCOPE. ALWAYS COVER THE FINDERSCOPE WHEN USING YOUR TELESCOPE WITH THE CORRECT SOLAR FILTER. ALTHOUGH SMALL IN APERTURE, THIS INSTRUMENT HAS ENOUGH LIGHT GATHERING POWER TO CAUSE PERMANENT AND IRREVERSIBLE EYE DAMAGE. THE IMAGE PROJECTED BY THE FINDERSCOPE IS HOT ENOUGH TO BURN SKIN OR CLOTHING.

127mm Newtonian Reflecting Telescope
THE POWERSEEKER 127 Reflector
The PowerSeeker is a Newtonian reflecting telescope that comes on an equatorial mount. This section instructs you on the proper assembly and use of your PowerSeeker telescope, which is shipped in one box, containing all the parts you need to assemble it. Unpack and lay out all of the parts in a large, clear area where youll have room to work. Use the list below and the telescope diagram to confirm you have, and can identify each part.

Tripod Extension Screws Accessory Tray Counterweight Counterweight Bar Right Ascension Setting Circle Declination Setting Circle Focuser Eyepiece
Assembling Your Telescope
1. To set up the tripod, spread the legs outward until they are fully extended. Extend the center portion of each of the three tripod legs down 6-8". Use the three tightening screws located at the bottom of each leg to secure the extended legs in place. Place the accessory tray on top of tripod's center leg brace. Thread the tray's threaded post into the threaded hole in the center of the leg brace.
Attaching the Equatorial Mount
1. Locate the equatorial mount and place the base of the mount through the hole in the center of the tripod mounting platform. From underneath the tripod mounting platform, thread the mounting bolt with washer into the threaded hole on the bottom of the equatorial mount. Thread the latitude adjustment screws into the equatorial mount until both screws are touching the inside of the mount and the mount can no longer pivot up and down. Locate the counterweight bar and counterweight. Thread the threaded end of the counterweight bar into the Dec axis of the equatorial mount. Remove the safety screw and washer from the other end of the counterweight bar. Loosen the counterweight locking bolt so that the screw is no longer obstructing the center hole of the counterweight. Slide the counterweight half way up the counterweight bar and tighten the locking screw to secure the counterweight in place. Thread the safety screw and washer on to the end of the counterweight bar.
Before attaching the optical tube, the counterweight and slow motion controls should be added to the mount: 4. Slide the chrome end of the slow motion control cables onto the equatorial mount gear shaft. See Figure 1. The longer cable should attach to the Right Ascension axis and the shorter cable attaches to the Declination axis.
Attaching the Optical Tube
You are now ready to put the telescope optical tube (c) onto the equatorial mount (f). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Slightly loosen the screws that hold the mounting rings on the telescope in place. Slide the rings apart so that each is at the same distance as the holes in the mounting platform. Place the telescope tube on the mount so that the treaded post at the bottom of the tube rings go through the holes on the mounting platform. Thread a wing nut onto the end of the threaded posts and tighten to secure the tube to the mount. Tighten the screws that hold the mounting rings in place. This will keep the telescope from sliding back and forth in the mounting rings.
Attaching the Accessories
Your telescope comes with the following accessories: 1. 2. 3. 20mm eyepiece 1" 4mm eyepiece 1 " 3x Barlow Lens 1" 5x24 finderscope The Sky L1 Planetarium software
Remove the caps from the focuser draw tube (o). Place the chrome barrel end of the eyepiece into the focuser. Lock it into place with the thumb screw on the side of the focuser. Your telescope also comes with a 3x Barlow lens which triples the magnifying power of each eyepiece (see Magnification section of the manual). To use the barlow lens, insert the barlow lens directly into the focuser. Then start by using the low power eyepiece such as the 20mm, and insert it directly into the barlow lens.
Attaching the Finderscope
Remove the two small, silver thumbscrews located on top of the telescope tube. See Figure 2. 2. Place the finderscope bracket over the two holes in the telescope tube, lining up the holes on the finderscope bracket with those in the telescope tube. Insert the thumbscrews through the finderscope bracket and thread them into the telescope tube. 1.
Using your Telescope
Moving Your Telescope: To change the direction your telescope is pointing: 1. Figure 2 To move the telescope in declination (north/south) there are two options. For large and quick movements, loosen the declination knob (see figures 8) when moving the telescope and then tighten the knob when you are near the position you want. For very small movements and fine adjustments, use the declination cable. The declination cable has a range of about 30 and if you come to the stop at the end of its travel, do not try to force movement when the declination cable has reached the stop. Instead loosen the declination knob and manually move the telescope in declination until you pass the object in the opposite direction. Then tighten the knob and reverse the direction of the declination cable.
To move the telescope in right ascension (east/west) there are two options. For large and quick movements, loosen the right ascension knob when moving the telescope and then tighten the knob when you are near the position you want. For very small movements and fine adjustments, turn the right ascension cable. Unlike the declination cable, the right ascension cable has 360 of continuous motion.
Balancing the Telescope in Right Ascension (R.A.): The telescope should be properly balanced in order for it to move smoothly in both axes. Proper balance is essential if using an optional motor drive for accurate tracking. 1. To balance the right ascension axis, move the counterweight shaft so it is parallel (horizontal) to the ground. (See figure 3). Slowly release the right ascension knob and see if the optical tube moves. If the optical tube moves, then slide the counterweight up or down the counterweight shaft until the optical tube remains stationary in the parallel position to the ground. When this happens, make sure the counterweight lock is tight.
Balancing the Telescope in Declination (DEC): The telescope should also be balanced on the declination axis to prevent any sudden motions when the DEC clamp is released. To balance the telescope in DEC: 1. Release the R.A. clamp and rotate the telescope so that it is on one side of the mount (i.e., as described in the previous section on balancing the telescope in R.A.).Lock the R.A. clamp to hold the telescope in place. Release the DEC clamp and rotate the telescope until the tube is parallel to the ground (see figure 4). Release the tube GRADUALLY to see which way it rotates around the declination axis. DO NOT LET GO OF THE TELESCOPE TUBE COMPLETELY! Loosen the screws that hold the telescope tube inside the mounting rings and slide the telescope tube either forwards or backwards until it remains stationary when the DEC clamp is released. Tighten the tube ring screws firmly to hold the telescope in place.
Figure 3 - Balancing in R.A.
Figure 4 - Balancing in Declination
A telescope is an instrument that collects and focuses light. The nature of the optical design determines how the light is focused. Some telescopes, known as refractors, use lenses. Other telescopes, known as reflectors, use mirrors. A Newtonian reflector uses a single concave mirror as its primary. Light enters the tube traveling to the mirror at the back end. There light is bent forward in the tube to a single point, its focal point. Since putting your head in front of the telescope to look at the image with an eyepiece would keep the reflector from working, a flat mirror called a diagonal intercepts the light and points it out the side of the tube at right angles to the tube. The eyepiece is placed there for easy viewing. Newtonian Reflector telescopes replace heavy lenses with mirrors to collect and focus the light, providing much more light-gathering power for the dollar. Because the light path is intercepted and reflected out to the side, you can have 6
focal lengths up to 1000mm and still enjoy a telescope that is relatively compact and portable. A Newtonian Reflector telescope offers such impressive light-gathering characteristics you can take a serious interest in deep space astronomy even on a modest budget. Newtonian Reflector telescopes do require more care and maintenance because the primary mirror is exposed to air and dust. However, this small drawback does not hamper this type of telescopes popularity with those who want an economical telescope that can still resolve faint, distant objects.

Newtonian reflectors produce a right-side-up image but the image will appear rotated based on the location of the eyepiece holder in relation to the ground. Newtonian reflectors are best for astronomical use where right-side-up does not matter.

To focus your telescope, simply turn the focus knob located directly below the eyepiece holder. Turning the knob clockwise allows you to focus on an object that is farther than the one you are currently observing. Turning the knob counterclockwise from you allows you to focus on an object closer than the one you are currently observing. If you wear corrective lenses (specifically glasses), you may want to remove them when observing with an eyepiece attached to the telescope. However, when using a camera you should always wear corrective lenses to ensure the sharpest possible focus. If you have astigmatism, corrective lenses must be worn at all times.
The Celestial Coordinate System
To help find objects in the sky, astronomers use a celestial coordinate system that is similar to our geographical coordinate system here on Earth. The celestial coordinate system has poles, lines of longitude and latitude, and an equator. For the most part, these remain fixed against the background stars. The celestial equator runs 360 degrees around the Earth and separates the northern celestial hemisphere from the southern. Like the Earth's equator, it bears a reading of zero degrees. On Earth this would be latitude. However, in the sky this is referred to as declination, or DEC for short. Lines of declination are named for their angular distance above and below the celestial equator. The lines are broken down into degrees, minutes of arc, and seconds of arc. Declination readings south of the equator carry a minus sign (-) in front of the coordinate and those north of the celestial equator are either blank (i.e., no designation) or preceded by a plus sign (+).
The celestial sphere seen from the outside showing R.A. and DEC.
The celestial equivalent of longitude is called Right Ascension, or R.A. for short. Like the Earth's lines of longitude, they run from pole to pole and are evenly spaced 15 degrees apart. Although the longitude lines are separated by an angular distance, they are also a measure of time. Each line of longitude is one hour apart from the next. Since the Earth rotates once every 24 hours, there are 24 lines total. As a result, the R.A. coordinates are marked off in units of time. It begins with an arbitrary point in the constellation of Pisces designated as 0 hours, 0 minutes, 0 seconds. All other points are designated by how far (i.e., how long) they lag behind this coordinate after it passes overhead moving toward the west.
Motion of the Stars
The daily motion of the Sun across the sky is familiar to even the most casual observer. This daily trek is not the Sun moving as early astronomers thought, but the result of the Earth's rotation. The Earth's rotation also causes the stars to do the same, scribing out a large circle as the Earth completes one rotation. The size of the circular path a star follows depends on where it is in the sky. Stars near the celestial equator form the largest circles rising in the east and setting in the west. Moving toward the north celestial pole, the point around which the stars in the northern hemisphere appear to rotate, these circles become smaller. Stars in the mid-celestial latitudes rise in the northeast and set in the northwest. Stars at high celestial latitudes are always above the horizon, and are said to be circumpolar because they never rise and never set. You will never see the stars complete one circle because the sunlight during the day washes out the starlight. However, part of this circular motion of stars in this region of the sky can be seen by setting up a camera on a tripod and opening the shutter for a couple hours. The processed film will reveal semicircles that revolve around the pole. (This description of stellar motions also applies to the southern hemisphere except all stars south of the celestial equator move around the south celestial pole.)
Figure 8 All stars appear to rotate around the celestial poles. However, the appearance of this motion varies depending on where you are looking in the sky. Near the north celestial pole the stars scribe out recognizable circles centered on the pole (1). Stars near the celestial equator also follow circular paths around the pole. But, the complete path is interrupted by the horizon. These appear to rise in the east and set in the west (2). Looking toward the opposite pole, stars curve or arc in the opposite direction scribing a circle around the opposite pole (3).
The easiest way to polar align a telescope is with a latitude scale. Unlike other methods that require you to find the celestial pole by identifying certain stars near it, this method works off of a known constant to determine how high the polar axis should be pointed (see figure 10). The constant, mentioned above, is a relationship between your latitude and the angular distance the celestial pole is above the northern (or southern) horizon; The angular distance from the northern horizon to the north celestial pole is always equal to your latitude. To illustrate this, imagine that you are standing on the north pole, latitude +90. The north celestial pole, which has a declination of +90, would be directly overhead (i.e., 90 above the horizon). Now, lets say that you move one degree south your latitude is now +89 and the celestial pole is no longer directly overhead. It has moved one degree closer toward the northern horizon. This means the pole is now 89 above the northern horizon. If you move one degree further south, the same thing happens again. You would have to travel 70 miles north or south to change your latitude by one degree. As you can see from this example, the distance from the northern horizon to the celestial pole is always equal to your latitude. If you are observing from Los Angeles, which has a latitude of 34, then the celestial pole is 34 above the northern horizon. All a latitude scale does then is to point the polar axis of the telescope at the right elevation above the northern (or southern) horizon. To align your telescope: 1. 2. Make sure the polar axis of the mount is pointing due north. Use a landmark that you know faces north. Adjust the mount in altitude until the latitude indicator points to your latitude. Moving the mount affects the angle the polar axis is pointing.
This method can be done in daylight, thus eliminating the need to fumble around in the dark. Although this method does NOT put you directly on the pole, it will limit the number of corrections you will make when tracking an object.
Pointing at Polaris
This method utilizes Polaris as a guidepost to the celestial pole. Since Polaris is less than a degree from the celestial pole, you can simply point the polar axis of your telescope at Polaris. Although this is by no means perfect alignment, it does get you within one degree. Unlike the previous method, this must be done in the dark when Polaris is visible. 1. 2. Set the telescope up so that the polar axis is pointing north. See Figure 10. Loosen the DEC clutch knob and move the telescope so that the tube is parallel to the polar axis. When this is done, the declination setting circle will read +90. If the declination setting circle is not aligned, move the telescope so that the tube is parallel to the polar axis. Adjust the mount in altitude and/or azimuth until Polaris is in the field of view of the finder. Center Polaris in the field of the telescope using the fine adjustment controls on the mount.

Remember, while Polar aligning, do NOT move the telescope in R.A. or DEC. You do not want to move the telescope itself, but the polar axis. The telescope is used simply to see where the polar axis is pointing.
Figure 10- Aligning the Equatorial mount to the polar axis of the Earth.
Finding the North Celestial Pole
In each hemisphere, there is a point in the sky around which all the other stars appear to rotate. These points are called the celestial poles and are named for the hemisphere in which they reside. For example, in the northern hemisphere all stars move around the north celestial pole. When the telescope's polar axis is pointed at the celestial pole, it is parallel to the Earth's rotational axis. Many methods of polar alignment require that you know how to find the celestial pole by identifying stars in the area. For those in the northern hemisphere, finding the celestial pole is not too difficult. Fortunately, we have a naked eye star less than a degree away. This star, Polaris, is the end star in the handle of the Little Dipper. Since the Little Dipper (technically called Ursa Minor) is not one of the brightest constellations in the sky, it may be difficult to locate from urban areas. If this is the case, use the two end stars in the bowl of the Big Dipper (the pointer stars). Draw an imaginary line through them toward the Little Dipper. They point to Polaris (see Figure 12). The position of the Big Dipper changes during the year and throughout the course of the night (see Figure 11). When the Big Dipper is low in the sky (i.e., near the horizon), it may be difficult to locate. During these times, look for Cassiopeia (see Figure 12). Observers in the southern hemisphere are not as fortunate as those in the northern hemisphere. The stars around the south celestial pole are not nearly as bright as those around the north. The closest star that is relatively bright is Sigma Octantis. This star is just within naked eye limit (magnitude 5.5) and lies about 59 arc minutes from the pole. Definition
Figure 11 - The position of
the Big Dipper changes throughout the year and the night.
The north celestial pole is the point in the northern hemisphere around which all stars appear to rotate. The counterpart in the southern hemisphere is referred to as the south celestial pole.
Figure 12 The two stars in the front of the bowl of the Big Dipper point to Polaris which is less than one degree from the true (north) celestial pole. Cassiopeia, the W shaped constellation, is on the opposite side of the pole from the Big Dipper. The North Celestial Pole (N.C.P.) is marked by the + sign.
Using the Setting Circles
Setting Circles are dials (or gauges) for right ascension and declination that allow you to locate celestial objects easily from their coordinates as listed in a star chart or atlas. 1. The declination setting circle (see Figure 9) is scaled in degrees and the right ascension setting circle is incremented in minutes. The circles will get you close to your target but not directly on it. Also, the accuracy of your polar alignment will affect how accurate your setting circles read. The declination setting circle is factory set and should not need any adjustment if it reads accurately. The right ascension setting circle must be aligned. Choose a bright and easy to find star in a star chart and note the coordinates (right ascension and declination). Find the star in the Star Pointer and then in the telescope. Now, rotate the right ascension circle to match the coordinates of the star with the indicator mark. If you polar aligned the telescope accurately, the declination circle should be correctly set to the proper coordinates. The right ascension setting circle does not move as the telescope moves in right ascension and thus it must by aligned each time you want to use it to find a new object. However, you do not need to use a bright star each time but you can use the object you are currently observing. Now, using a star chart or atlas you can find numerous objects. First move the telescope in declination to the correct declination coordinate. Then move the telescope in right ascension until the indicator points to the correct coordinate. After moving the telescope to the correct celestial coordinates, look through the lower power eyepiece to see if you have located the object you wish to view. Center the object in eyepiece. If the object is not visible in the eyepiece, gradually pan the telescope, using the right ascension and declination cables, until the object is visible. Always start by using your lowest power eyepiece (20mm) then switching to higher power once you have found the desired object.
The magnification (or power) of a telescope varies depending upon the focal length of the eyepiece being used and the focal length of the telescope. The PowerSeeker 127 telescope has a focal length of 1000mm and comes with a 20mm 1" eyepiece. To calculate magnification, use the following formula, in which FL = focal length: Magnification = FL (telescope) in mm FL (eyepiece) in mm
Therefore, if you use the 20mm eyepiece your magnification is 1000/20 = 50x. The same formula can be applied to any of your eyepieces. Magnification through any telescope has its limits. These limits are determined by the laws of optics and the nature of the human eye. Most of your viewing will be done in the range of 50x to 130x. Higher powers are used mainly for lunar and sometimes planetary observing where you can greatly enlarge the image and the atmospheric conditions are near perfect. The images at extremely high powers magnify the image, but remember that the contrast will be very low due to the high magnification. For the brightest images with the most contrast, start by using the lower power eyepiece with a smaller image scale. The following magnification levels can be achieved when using the standard eyepieces in conjunction with the 3x Barlow lens:
Eyepiece 20mm 4mm
Magnification 50x 250x
Mag. with 3x Barlow Lens 150x 750x
With proper care, your telescope should rarely need any maintenance work. To maintain your telescope in the best possible condition, observe the follow suggestions: 1. 2. When your telescope isnt in use, replace all lens covers to keep dust and contaminants off the optical surfaces. A small amount of dust on any optical surface isnt a problem and doesnt need to be removed. If the dust builds up, then use a can of compressed air and a camels hair brush to remove the dust. To remove fingerprints or other contaminants, use an optical cleaning kit or the Celestron Lens Pen (#93575). If the inside of the objective lens needs cleaning, it should be done by a professional. Either have your instrument serviced by a telescope repair facility or return it to the factory for servicing.
Collimation or alignment of the optical system is done at the factory before shipment. 1. If your telescope has received very rough handling during transport or is dropped, it may need collimation. Refer to the following sketch to check if your telescope is in collimation. If you look into the eyepiece adapter (without an eyepiece) at the top of the focuser, this is what you should see. If the reflection of your eye is off center, then collimation is necessary. 2. Adjustments to the collimation of the telescope can be made by turning the collimation adjustment screws (d) located at the rear of the optical tube. If your telescope is out of collimation, the best way to recollimate it is with a good collimation tool. Celestron offers a Newtonian Collimation Tool (#94183) with detailed instructions that make it an easy chore.
