This is probably going to sound like a VERY stupid question/problem, but I have having problems aligning/calibrating my Nexstar 6SE.
I have had it now for months, but the night skies in Colorado have been awful here due to all the forest fires out west. So when I did think about trying to get the setup done, the stars were just too dim.
Along with my 6SE, I also have StarSense AutoAlign and the SkyPortal WiFi Module.
I completed the alignment process using the SkyPortal app on my phone. The app said that the alignment was successful. However, when I proceeded to do the calibration phase, telling the telescope to go to a specific bright star, it went WAY off course.
I also tried doing the alignment using the updated StarSense hand controller (after making sure the time, date, DST inputs were okay) and got pretty much the same result.
What stupid newbie thing am I missing here? (and yes, I remembered to remove the lens caps, etc first!)
