Quote:I have had my CGE for about a year now, and I use it for imaging the planets. I decided I was tired of trying to keep the planets on the CCD, and now im trying to get the scope polar aligned. My problem is when I slew to the first star on the alignment it is no where in site. Im looking for some advice on what I might be doing wrong in the process. I lined the mount axis with polaris, but I did not use the finder scope. Should I use the finder scope to center polaris. Thanks ahead for the help on this situation
