Aligning your telescope is simple and painless too, thanks to your Celestron telescopes' SkyAlign technology. Simply enter your time, date and location, then point the telescope to three bright stars. You don't even have to know what they are - the SkyAlign system will figure it out for you! Alternatively, you can use other alignment methods such as Auto 2-Star or a Solar System Alignment.
