Quote: Should I assume that to keep from the most drifting, it is best to put Polaris near the edge of FOV, if you have a true eyepiece fov of 1-1/2 degrees. And if so, which edge do I put Polaris on? Can the double of Polaris be of help to know what edge to put Polaris on?

Quote:Yes, you are correct.HOWEVER. When I first get a mount, I DO set it up using the level. The next thing I do with the CG5 and LXD (I have owned a couple of eacy), is to tear off the Declination Home Position index marks. These markes are slapped on by someone that doesn't even know what a mount does.
