Quote:Couldn't you do a quick alignment and basically accept whatever the scope tells you and then manually find stars using just the Autostar directional arrows after that? At that point it should compensate for earth rotation correctly, right? Wondering at what point I know the scope will track objects with the least Autostar input from me.
Quote:But if I only need to use it as a clock drive it shouldn't matter - just to keep objects in view?
Quote:Thanks for the help. So as long as I do a decent initial alignment I can use it the way I explained earlier, without go to - correct? Although at that point not using the scope as it was intended seems kinda dumb. Might make more to look at a different scope for this plan
