I had a problem the other night drift aligning my cge with the ex ar152, i kept adjusting the wrong way. Now the 3 Saturday nights before I had no problem drift aligning my c11 on this same mount, and I think I have figured out the problem, maybe. do I have to adjust the mount differently on a sct versus a refracter. I am using the same diagonal and cross-hair eyepiece in both scopes. Please tell me if this is correct or not, thanks.
No, not different at all. Both scopes, with a 90* diagonal will present a correct up-down and reversed left-right image IF you have the diagonal at the same orientation with respect to the ground. If you rotate the diagonal AT ALL from vertical, then all bets are off. Did you, by chance, have the diagonal rotated?
