Atlas EQ-G Polar Scope Alignment
Posted 26 February 2014 - 10:01 PM
So, I was just looking through the scope, lining up the circle in the reticle with a fixed object. I spun the RA axis and noticed the circle in the reticle stayed aligned with the point I put it on. But something I noticed was that the entire image rotated with the rotation of the RA axis. Anyone else ever notice this and could this impact the alignment of the polar scope with the mounts' polar axis?

this is NORMAL. In fact the key to good polar alignment is rotating the scope so the small circle where you place polaris is in proper place for current time/date
