Quote:Hi all.I recently upgraded my cg5 mount HC and MC to the new 4.15 and 5.14 versions but wasn't able to do a polar alignment because of the weather. tonight was partly cloudy so I was able to do the alignment. after the two star align and two calib star alignment I was looking for the polar align under the utilities menu but there was none, so I scroll through all the other menus still could not find it. did they remove the polar align from the new version? or is there a updated manual? if so where can I find it?Anyway even without the polar alignment I was still able to slew to Saturn and the moon, Mizar and they all showed up in the eyepiece, but then the clouds rolled in so I had to call it a night.Thanks.
