My LDX55 mount (with Autostar) has a polar scope which I'm able to center Polaris in nicely. When I attach my SP-C8 with 25mm eyepiece to it Polaris is just out of view (too low). I can't bring it into view of the scope without slewing the RA pretty far off to the side and then adjusting the DEC a little.
1. Should the scope and Telrad be viewing Polaris if the mount is perfectly aligned and the scope is zeroed out in DEC and RA?
2. Should that matter for beginning an Easy, 1 or 2 star alignment or is the scope aim taken care of during the next steps?
