Pole Master and cone error

Postby pkrallis » Sat Feb 17, 2018 12:29 am

I have been using PoleMaster quite successfully and for visual it is quick and easy, but I want to do some astrophotography and notice that I have some cone error. My back yard observatory can only look west so I can't do a three star alignment with one star on the other side of the meridian to compensate. If I moved the PoleMaster from the PAS position of the NEQ6 to the dovetail, would that compensate for the cone error?

Thanks in advance,
