I just joined CN and this is my first post/question...I'm using Stellarium with eqmod/ascom to control my telescope to find and slew to targets, such as Jupiter and Saturn (yay conjunction)... I never get good polar alignment because I have to set up in my apartment building parking lot and the building blocks the North (.
I select Jupiter in Stellarium and ctrl 1, the scope slews there, but it's always off, so then I have to search around to get it lined up in the main scope (finally got a better finder scope so that helps some). Now that I moved the scope to see Jupiter, in Stellarium the telescope position is no longer on Jupiter.
Can I tell Stellarium where my telescope is actually pointing? Like some command to say "set my telescope position to selected object"..so that now Stellarium would show the scope positioned on Jupiter. Then I could repeat this procedure on Saturn and other objects to further fine-tune the alignment.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially before tonight so I can have better results for the great conjunction (mmm Gelfling) this evening and tomorrow and on
