Hi Don,

 

It might help as there is commonality between GEM and alt-ax) but that guide, like my books, is specifically for the alt-az mounts.

Thanks Mike. The reason I asked is because the manual and addendum that came with my mount and version 4 hand controller has nothing about the All Star Polar Alignment, that of course because the version it was shipped with, the ASPA was not created into the firmware until years later. So now with my version hand controller firmware updated to 4.22 to correct the GPS Rollover, I am looking for a step by step on how to use the ASPA. It appears that on page 11 that this covers how to do the ASPA for the CG5-ASGT Mount as well below?

Hi Don,

 

I do believe my instructions for ASPA will be pretty close to what you see on 4.22 for your AS-GT.
