what would work better though is if you do a good 2+4 alignment and then the next time you setup just pick last alignment, then you have an alignment model at least and can use the goto to slew to the right area and then search for the object with the HC if its not already there, manually slewing EQ mounts is kinda tricky until you get the hang of it.

My advice is, if you bought the AVX, you're not gonna do it any justice by not aligning it properly.
You can do a solar system alignment, and align off Jupiter and it will follow it. But to get the maximum out of it, you will need to do a proper full alignment.
The ASPA All Star Polar Alignment is a weird and wonderful thing if you are not used it, took me a few goes to understand how it works. It's like voodoo, but it just works..
