Alignmaster Works Great
Posted 24 February 2012 - 12:42 AM
I did a 10 minute unguided image of the eskimo nebula and was amazed that all the stars where perfectly round without any sign of drift. Alignmaster allowed me to get dead on polar alignment within about 10 minutes of launching the program. This software will be great when I take my mount off my concrete pier and go out to dark sites for a night of imaging. I am confident I will be able to quickly align the mount for 1 night sessions.

Doesn't seem to be a lot of recent discussion even with their forum (which happens to be in German).
Considering how many people seem to have issues attaining good polar alignment that there should be more chatter.
For $18-19, you would think people would be snapping it up, and its praises sung to the high heavens.
Or, maybe Alignmaster is not all that

The only difficulty I encountered (user error) was that Alignmaster wants to initiate the goto for the next alignment slew. I was trying to force that through Gemini.net Things got a little mixed up after that. Once I figured that out Alignmaster was good to go.
