    Default How do you set the coordinates on a Galileo...



    ...Reflector telescope? I lost the manual for my Galileo G5LTME 1100 x 135mm Reflector Telescope. I was wondering how to set the coordinates for my town. Any help would be much appreciated.

    You need only point the polar axis at the north star. You can do this by eye at night. There are no coordinates to be set on that telescope.

    I think the website has instructions. You set your latitude on the declination or something like that and point it at Polaris. You only need to do that if it's an equitorial type. If it's altazimuth you don't need to worry.

    The website is www.galileosplace.com
