Apologies for this complete Newbie question, a bit embarrassing.
I received my Celestron 8" Edge HD with AVX mount 2 days ago. Yesterday I did my first observing on my rooftop, without power supply as I only have the car 12V connection and my portable power source is not delivered yet.
I had no issues with manual polar alignment: polar axis of the mount pointing north setting latitude to 25 for Dubai, then fine-tuning with Latitude and Azimuth Adjustment Knobs, done. But I have a question: what do I do afterwards?
I wanted to observe the moon, which rises in the East. So after I polar aligned with the scope pointing at Polaris, what next? Is the suggested process then to move the entire tripod inclusive of mount and scope 90 deg around? That cannot be right. But I also cannot adjust sufficiently with the Azimuth Knobs to turn the scope 90 degrees to East, since the Alignment Peg of the AVX mount stops it at some point. So how do I turn the scope after polar alignment towards East to observe the moon? Or even towards South to observe Sirius, Regel or Betelgeuse?
Sorry, complete Newbie question.
