Entering Lat & Long...
Posted 19 December 2013 - 01:53 PM
When entering my Lat & Long I have the figure W 003 53.756 (taken from GPS in my truck).
The hc allows a 7 figure entry for this. So I enter 0035375 and then I press enter. However the hc display changes the last two figures to 59! So I get 0035359. I have tried this a few times but everytime I press 'enter' the last two figures change.
I don't know how much difference to the alignment this will make. I managed to do an alignment on my second attempt but it was very slightly out, not far but the object (Jupiter) was just outside the fov. Easy to correct with Jupiter but could be a problem with a faint object.
Am I doing something wrong or have I missed something here?
BTW when I enter Lat the last two figures always change to 59 when I press enter.
Any hints or advice much appreciated, thanks.

The hc asks for the degrees and seconds and I enter the figures in that format.

Cuidado, I know where you live now. lol
If you have trouble with SkyAlign, try using Auto 2 Star or 2 Star. People seem to have luck with them.
