First two nights trying to use my new to me EQ6 mounted C9.25 to observe using Goto. Obviously, I have to align it first but using the hand control 3 star alignment, it asks for stars that I haven’t a clue where to find. I took great care to set the home position as best I could with Polaris nicely centered in the EP and finders. I was planning on aligning with the HC then going on to use the HC to polar align but I didn't get that far - couldn’t find the stars.
I see the EQ6 has a polar scope and it came with a “Polemaster QHYCCD” camera but I haven’t a clue what to do with that (did try starting their app but it didn’t find the cam!). Getting down that low to squint through the mount polar scope will be hard on my back but is that what I need to do?
(With my old forked orange C8, all I had to do was point at Polaris with zerod scales and off I hopped… Wasted two lovely evenings faffing about!)
