I have noticed in CPWI's StarSense menu there is a selection for User Auto-Align Creation Tool. When you run the tool it displays a circular grid representing the sky on which you can click 4 points for your desired StarSense User Auto-Align procedure. So I clicked on 4 points corresponding to sky areas that are not blocked by trees in my yard and then saved the points in a .sua file on my laptop. So my question is, where in CPWI do I load this saved User Auto-Align file? I do not see anywhere in the menu system for performing a StarSense User Auto-Align.

If you select starsense auto align
it will then give you the option to use your user auto align file.
when selected, this will open the directory where the “sua “ file was saved and you select it .
note you can have multiple “sua” files to choose from if you want.

As per post #2, it's the same as the "sua" file that you have the option to create after completing a StarSense Manual Align. I use it because I know where the scope needs to point, there's no need to actually do a manual align.

Thank you both. I went back and tried it again tonight and it worked like a champ. What was throwing me off was that I would get to the StarSense Automatic dialog and there were 2 options: Ready or Calibrate. I figured that if I clicked Ready it would go and attempt a full StarSense Auto Alignment, but lo and behold I was then given 3 options: Use Default 4 Points, Custom Points, or Load Custom Points. So I clicked Load Custom Points, selected my previously created .sua file, and off it went to perfectly slew to my 4 tree-free areas of the sky.
