Help with StarSense alignment
Posted 10 August 2020 - 04:37 PM
I have a CPC925 GPS with the StarSense camera attachment. The other night I ran the alignment from the SkyPortal app on my tablet and it completed. However when I try to go to any object, it is not visible in my 40mm eyepiece at all. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Since it completed the camera's cap is off (lol)...Seriously, have you tried to start with the planets first, those will be hard to miss...Start with the moon and then Jupiter. Maybe you picked something thats not very bright?

Make sure you do a calibration of the camera for your scope.(see page 12 in user manual).
This is done after you perform a alignment.
once calibration is completed, you will need to rerun a alignment.
you will not need to recalibrate unless you really bump you starsense mount.
