The NexStar User's Guide was the first all-NexStar book in print. The second edition is fully updated to include detailed information for the LCM, SLT, SE, CPC, SkyProdigy and Astro Fi models. It also covers the StarSense system and the SkyPortal app in detail. Visit the NexStar User's Guide section of the website to view the contents, excerpts from the book, updated information and links to the resources discussed in the book.

Thinking of introducing someone (or yourself) to amateur astronomy?  A NexStar SE or SLT scope and The NexStar User's Guide II are the perfect solution.  You get a great beginner's scope and a book that will help you learn both the scope and amateur astronomy.

 

NexStar Observer List (NSOL)
is a free PC control program for all models of NexStar, StarSeeker, CPC, LCM, CGE, CGE Pro, CGEM, Advanced Series GoTo (AS-GT) and Ultima 2000 scopes, as well as Tasco StarGuide scopes.  Version 2.6.4 was released on 4 July 2004.  Click here to read more and download the latest version.
 

This site is devoted to the computerized "GoTo" telescopes from Celestron.  Most of the models feature a computer hand control as standard equipment allowing the scope to automatically "GoTo" objects in its generous database.   They track objects automatically as well.  Basic information about these scopes is available at the Celestron web site, but this site is a collection of information not found anywhere else.  Two other great source of information are the many Celestron-related Yahoo Groups and Cloudy Night's forums, (see Links above).  The folks on these groups are quite friendly and don't mind questions from someone trying to make up their mind about a purchase or just looking for information about their telescope.

Clear Skies!
