Thank you all for you responses!!! Mike Swanson I have visited your site many times and it is very helpful. I would donate but I don't see a button.
I have an original NexStar 5 (non-upgradable). The optics are not bad at all.
I do not think I can put a dovetail on that old OTA... So I'll be selling it and looking for something else.
For now I have a SV80 f/6 to put on the SLT mount. That scope will perform double duty as a CaK
It's just confusing. I sounds like Mike, you are saying, it's ALL in there! If so, why does Celestron say 4K objects?
Do they hobble it if the mount is set to SLT?
I just re-read the comments... I guess I'll give it a go when I pick it up.
Oh and yes Taosmath, I have the Double Star atlas.
I just got the USB->SERIAL and SERIAL -> RJ cabling. So I guess the point is moot. And typing this I just realized when not using my Nexus on the dob, I could make a Wireless net if I can hook the Nexus to the Nexstar slt... So I'd have a Nex-NexStar... Cripes so many choices!
