As an option for push to scopes in SkySafari is - Az/Alt mount with an Equatorial Platform. While I have not yet received my new to me platform yet I am doing my research to prepare me for it's use with my Orion XX12I.

As i understand it the intelliscope software turns off the system clock if you note you are using a platform which requires a new alignment at the end of the cycle. It makes more sense to not select that option and just reposition after reset to the viewed item.

My question is how does SkySafari 5 (Android) manage the platform. And if selected is a new alignment required after resetting?

Thanks

Ed
