locked Re: How to start guiding #astrophotography

Thanks that's exactly what I am looking for, so once polar aligned how do I find my target, if not using explore stars goto? 

I know plate solving will show me what's in the image frame, but I need to get the camera pointing in the right general direction, is it just a matter of star hoping and learning the sky?
