I purchased this as a grab n go/ travel rig I am putting together. I’ve read posts in this forum and have watched YouTube videos, but must be missing something or I’m confused!
I assume the home position is scope up, counter-weight down- not to either side. When I set the latitude scale on the SW base to my location, let’s say 26, the scope, when mounted, would be pointing up way too far- far above Polaris. It’s almost as if I subtracted 26 from 90 and put the scale on the 64 mark, it’s generally pointed at the correct angle. I don’t think I have anything upside down or backwards.
Am I supposed to point in the general direction of Polaris and run a polar alignment routine of my choosing and ignore that scale on the wedge due to how I’m using the mount in EQ rather than az-alt?
I know there are quite a few on CN’s using this set-up. Thanks.
