Well as the title suggests, my Nexus II arrived about 10 days ago and the new equipment curse has finally passed and I was able to test it out for the first time last night. Scope is a ES 12" Truss Dob and Skysafari 6 + on a Samsung tab 2. First off this is a really slick setup, just cruising around my limited view sky I have currently I was able to center objects with ease just by pushing the scope around and watching the map. However Im still a little bit confused on alignment and how far apart the initial two objects/stars need to be. Additionally, it seems with my unit, at least in my testing last night that accuracy at the opposite ends of the sky isn't maintained. For example, align on Jupiter, move scope to say Vega and make it 2nd alignment. Alls good...Cruze around for a while in the northern quadrant of the sky... Now try and go back to Jupiter and its pretty far off. Is this normal behavior? Also I did loose Wifi connect a few times and Skysafari can get a bit laggy ( for this next time I have turned off lots of the extra graphical features to see if it will speed things up). Moving in 3 weeks to my new home in the country where I will have a much better view of the sky than currently on my deck in Suburbs. Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated.
