I am a beginner, living near 18 north 73 east tropical belt. I recently upgraded to a skywatcher eq6r mount from a skytracker. I have hard time getting a good polar alignnent on phd2.
I use PHD2 polar drift align after rough polar alignment. The PA error gets around 40-50 arc mins when I point on a star near Polaris. If I get slightly away, I see a big difference. Question: Why do I have to be so close to polaris? I get couple of stars in FOV. The phd2 polar align circle ('lollipop') shows up just few times and then goes out of screen. Question: What could I be doing wrong, not to get the phd2 circle inside screen?
Question: Since sharpcap need more number of stars, do you guys think Polemaster can help me with PA?
Can Fellow phd2 PA experienced folks please help.
