Polarscope Reticule Centering And Mods

For the discussion of posted tutorials so as not to break up the threads. Just start a thread here with the same name as the tutorial.

TUTORIAL DISCUSSION

Why a tutorial discussion section? Well, if a person is posting a tutorial thread in segments, the tendency is for people to post questions in-between. This causes the tutorial to become convoluted.

So, if you post a tutorial, especially if you intend it to be several messages long (ie, in steps) please also post a thread here with" <name of tutorial> discussion" as the subject.

Thanks

Last night I tried to sort out my polar scope alignment and failed.

I tuned the focus ring when the grub screws were all undone and the image inside of the polar scope turned upside down! So I have to get it back to where it should be, is this the way to do it or is there a better way?

Centre a star (or similar) in the middle of the cross in the polar scope, then using the altitude bolts move the cross up or down until it hits the circle. Then unlock the grub screws which in turn unlock the polar scope image... Turn the image so the cross hair is perfectly inline with the star.

Then re-centre as the tutorial shows.

Is this the way to do it? Help meeee.

Sorry I think I have posted in the wrong place.
