Point-and-Track (AZ Mode Only)
Tracking does not require an alignment or a sky model. Select the object from the appropriate list and choose Point-and-Track.
(For EQ Mode, just point the scope at the object and select the appropriate tracking rate from the tracking menu in the upper right corner of Synscan)
This question is for anyone that can answer it, not just the OP... Please excuse my ignorance on this mount, I got it last year but only had a couple chances to use it...
So for Point-and-Track (AZ Mode Only), I can really just point the scope to any object without doing any alignment and choose Point-and-Track and it will track? If so, that sounds great! I desire tracking more than GoTo and would find this VERY useful for quick lunar/planetary observing.
Thinking out loud here... The mount gets the time/location information from the phone, so what factors could potentially degrade tracking performance? How level the tripod is?
