Quote:Tim,Yes it's a bit of an issue. There are however some good tutorials online and in some other threads here on CN.The bigger question however is why bother with the scope? For visual work you can usually just "eyeball" the polar alignment close enough. With the All Star polar alignment routine in the hand controller you can get just about as good a polar alignment as with the scope, and if you are imaging you'll probably be wanting to do an accurate drift alignment anyways.
Quote:First off thanks for the reply. You say why bother with the scope? Well, I do realize that when imaging, you need to be properly aligned in order to properly track and keep the object you are viewing and imaging in the center of the field of view. As far as accurate drift, I really am not sure what you are referring to. I have seen that somewhere just don't remember where.I have Canon BackYardeos I believe I saw it there.How does it work? Not totally up on all the aspects of imaging yet.Obviously. Thanks, Tim
