Orion XX12g goto - level surface?

If so, what’s the best way to do it? Carry an assortment of wooden boards with me? I generally find that I’m frequently traveling to new and different locations so it’s hard to know in advance how level the surface will be.

I use to just get mine close. Go-to was usually in the ep, but leveling made tracking (keeping it in the ep) better.

".....sometimes the goto is a bit off target despite me trying to precision align"
In your Manual, it specifically instructs that disabling the AUX Encoders will significantly improve GoTo's and Tracking.
And leveling helps enormously.

I find my SW12 (synscan) and Orion xx16g aren't too picky If I keep the out-of-levelness to a minimum.
