polar alignment with heq5 goto mount

Postby iwols » Sat Dec 05, 2015 12:30 am

hi all new to this so be careful,looking at using my nikon on a heq5 goto mount and just learning how to polar align the mount,ive set the home position on the dec and ra axis but when i look through the polar alignment,the cross hairs are not straight up and down so when i use polar finder it doesnt look the same for locating polaris on the circle if that makes sense
