Hello,

 

I have a copy of the Sky Safari 6 Pro software, running on Mac. I also have a CloudMakers AstroDSLR + ClodMakers AstroMetry.

 

The AstroDSLR+Astrometry combo captures pictures, plate solves and give me the current (actual) coordinates.

 

Now there is Sky Safari 6 Pro that 'thinks' it is at a particular location - but in reality there is a slight offset. 

 

Now I need the Sky Safari to re-sync/ align to the location as pointed by my pate solver.

 

However - I don't see this option anywhere in SS - please help !

You might want to post this question to Simulation Curriculum's Community Forums since this is really not our support channel.

 

Is SkySafari connected to the mount through the hand controller?  If so then will use whatever alignment model and position that is reported by the hand controller.  If is is connecting via some WiFi connection to the CloudMakers software then I really don't know.  You might have to ask them about it.
