Hi   I have got my AZ_GTI  set up  with Carle's du Ciel 4.2.1 and Sharp Cap 3.2 , but I think there is something probably not right or is something I have not done or done should have done.  I have set scope pointing North and level , when I tell it to  goto sun it goes West about 80 degrees off and when I go to arrows to move scope up and down is OK but left and right are reverse,  how do I use sun as a star to do 1 star alignment?

Dosent that mean you have the scope on the 'wrong' side of the mount. ie when pointing North and level turn the mount 180 degrees in azimuth and reverse the telescope in the dovetail

Hmmm,

 

OK put it back to where you were then.

 

Are you definitely in AltAz mode? Got the time zones etc right on the computer?
