Quote:Also make sure your PA scope if aligned to your RA axis ( best done during the day ) and know how to look up Polaris' current position to correctly place it on the circular reticule. Aligning the reticule tutorial can be found here:It's done with a SkyView Pro, but the procedure is the samehttp://www.andysshotglass.com/PolarAlignmentScope.htmlThen once aligned, use this program to calculate where the current position of Polaris is.http://myastroimages.com/Polar_FinderScope_by_Jason_Dale/Doing the above will get you in good shape for both visual and Solar System imaging. If you plan to do long exposure AP ( especially without auto guiding ) you will need to drift align.
