    Default Supplied Finder scope on Celestron Nexstar 130



    After reading a number posts in regards to hard to use finder scopes, I too struggled the 1st night. It was way off everytime I went to a new target. The 2nd night, it all fell in place. I slewed to the red dot in the finder, saw it was still off from the previous night, adjusted the finder until it centered on the planet. That and learning to use both eyes ( don't squint) to line up the red dot onto the target. Perfect centered view in the EP. Now everytime I move to a new target, perfect in the EP. I am very happy. Maybe I don't know enough to not be happy but I'm happy.
