Ok, I put down the android and #walked away. It was hard but I needed to do it.

I am strictly a visual kind of guy and that's all I'll ever be for many reasons. So, I went back to 

kyTools3. I had it before but it was way beyond me. Now I need a little more.

 I have an AD-10 with manual setting circles,and an incline...incline.....incline....an angle gauge.

For several days now I have been trying to replace Ra/Dec with Alt/Az. There has to be a way. I would really like to figure this out w/o having to go to the dev. He has been very helpful already.

If anyone knows how to do it please let me know.

 

Steve

RA and DEC appear as titles.. to the far right is a square button called "configure columns" when you hover over it.  click that button and you can change the titles and save them..

If you go to Obsevring List - configure columns = select columns you can select Alt/Az and un select RA and Dec. I think this would do what you want if I understand you correctly.

Well guys thanks but no cigar. There are several places to add Alt/Az but none that I can find to remove Ra/Dec.

If I don't find it soon I will just ask The Dev.

You can remove RA/Dec in that same 'Configure Columns' screen. Unselect 'Apparent' in the section titled  'Coordinates'

Let us know if that does not make sense to you. It's an easy option if you know ST3 - but might be a bit off the beaten path for a new user.
