Quote:Oh thank you for responding! I should tell you this is a Vixen Mount with Autostar adapted to it. I did this with another vixen mount and did not have this difficulty. Anyway, yes I concidered the one star polar assist alignment but was not sure what it meant. With the scope in polar home position (tube directly over the mount pointed north) should polaris be in the eyepiece on the telescope at that point all by itself? NO Is autostar saying I need to look through the polar axis scope or the eyepeice for the assist? Eyepiece Yes I have an illuminated reticule.
Quote:So the military time is just using the autostar without AM or PM ? when in military time there is no am or pm present? The format is 00:00:00 is this hrs/min/sec ? I noticed the values can be entered can be very high like 99:99:99 is this normal? Thanks for your patcience.Abraham
