When aligning my 8SE, I've always had very good results following the advice of using the up and right buttons as the final slew commands when aligning stars with the hand controller.
With my recent foray into EAA, I decided to try using CPWI for alignment, and I noticed the manual at https://celestron-si...anual_ENG_F.pdf has the same advice I've always heard:
Anytime you center an object for alignment, make sure you use the Up and Right buttons for the final slew commands when approaching the center of the field of view. This is to minimize gear backlash in the mount to achieve a more accurate alignment on objects.
However, I also noticed that in CPWI we don't seem to have the same inversion of up / down buttons at slew rates 6 and lower like on the hand controller, where pressing up makes the scope point down and vice versa. So then is that advice actually correct when aligning using CPWI?? My understanding was that the whole point of the "final slew commands" advice was to match what the scope does when slewing to new targets. If that's the case, it would seem like one should be using the down and right buttons as the final slew commands for alignment in CPWI.
Is the manual wrong? Or am I missing something?
