You da man! I was able to finally get out and test your theory. Although I wasn't able to precisely align my scope due to just using the view finder of my camera, it slew to the general positions
that I chose from the catalog. I assume that I will have to do a 3-star or 2-star alignment each and every time? I think once I get a real scope mounted on, I can better align the mount.
But, yeah, before turning the PMC on, I made sure to match up the arrows, then turn on the PMC. Oh, and I did turn auto alignment off. Should I always have this setting off?
Are there any tricks when performing a 3-star or 2-star alignment? I'm not opposed to doing things the hard way, but if you (or others) recommend that I purchase any software and equipment for that purpose, I would love to hear any recommendations.
Again, thank you and the rest of the group for helping me get over what I'm sure is my first hurdle. :)
