Now and then I want to do a polar alignment with my LX600, and I use the automatic drift alignment method.
As it is said in the manual, the telescope slews to a southern star and begin monitoring the stars’ drift.
My problem is that I have some city-light pollution in the south, so the stars are less easy to find there.
I would think that Starlock would pick one of the brighter stars in the area, but Starlock end up tracking on a rather dim star, even if there are brighter and more suitable stars next to it.
Sometimes it works fine, but it often ends with a “star lost” message and I have to start over.
Is there a way to choose the star myself?
