Quote:Alright, my mount finally arrived today and it is my first gem mount and I'm quite impressed so far. Although, I won't be able to use it until Friday most likely, weather permitting. So my questions are: Do I have the latest firmware version, HC: 4.13 MC: 5.07? It appears I do, as it's the latest version on the website. However, I do not understand how to do the All-Star polar alignment procedure. Also, I am using a side by side setup and I pretty much got the balance issue solved fairly easily. However, because of the side by side setup I have to move the declination 90 degrees so the scopes are pointing north. I arbitrarily did a rough align inside my home and it appears to be pointing in the right directions when I do fake slews to Saturn and Sirius. Maybe this was out of pure luck. What do I do with regards to the index marks when using a SBS setup; do I need to make new index marks?
