Make sure the mount is level. If its not, the accuracy at higher altitudes in the sky will be off.
Point the scope at Polaris and then set the azimuth circle to 0 degrees.
Find the altitude and azimuth of the object you want to look at using a planetarium program like SkySafari or Stellarium.
Align the altitude and azimuth pointers with the coordinates you found in the previous step.
