Setup of Celestron 8″ Reflector Telescope

Setting up a Telescope is fairly straight forward and simple, however, always use care to avoid any possible damage to the equipment. Basically we first setup and level the tripod legs by centering the base bubble bullseye. After that we attach the Telescope to the mount and tighten the bolts. Removing the lens covers and insert the eyepiece. Now we are ready to Visual and Polar align the telescope. Finally we attach the telescope to the tracking drive corrector and to a suitable power source.
