Question on the correct workflow of alignment using CWPI and ASPA

 

I use CWPI to slew to 4 targets and I use Sharpcap Plate Solving to correct it, and fine tune it with the slew controls to get it right in the center. 

 

Then I do a ASPA in CWPI, and I have read that after this you need to do 4 more targets because you have essentially moved the mount, and the previous 4 targets are now slightly off. 

 

So my question is do I delete the alignment of the previous 4 target and just do 4 new ones? 

 

Do I leave the 4 in the memory and add the 4 new ones for a total of 8? 

 

Do I keep the alignment in memory and go back to those same initial 4 and do "Sync on Target"

You delete the previous alignment and do a new alignment.
