Precise Polar Alignment

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.


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.

Used Alignmaster on my HEQ5 last night and it came in like a dream using the reticule feature on my capture program Several go tos in stellarium seems good after I star aligned. But a funny thing happened when I parked the mount in the home position at the end if the night.l My pen marks on the mount were good but the scope indicator on stellarium was way off Polaris. I couldn't check the webcam at that point as the cloud cover was total but it was odd that Stellarium was out as much. Ill check the settings to make sure I have the correct coordinates in both
