first night out with new mount
Posted 09 October 2012 - 10:32 PM
after fairly accurate polar alignment i did the 3 star alignment then off to the races. it performed fantastic. every object i chose was spot on and visual tracking stayed centered - but didn't spend much time on any one object as i was so amazed at how i could punch in an object and be there in a matter of seconds. i have been a star hopper for the last 20 years but man i love this goto. the atlas is very sturdy for my scope (ES 127ED). easy to use. excellent. meant to take some pictures but got carried away with viewing.
