Re: Question from a prospective buyer: All Star Polar Alignment
You can get a lifetime subscription for Sharpcap for much less than a pole master. If you already have a setup with a camera supported by Sharpcap it is a much better solution imho.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I use Sharpcap to polar align with these camera/telescope combinations:
- ASI120MM-S and 50mm guide scope @200mm focal length (FOV ~ 2 deg)
- ASI1600MM and 70mm imaging scope @ f/4.8 (FOV ~3 deg)
- ASI1600MM and 8 inch f/4 imaging Newtonian (FOV ~1.5deg)
I really don't see a scenario if you have a imaging or guiding setup with a degree FOV or larger where you'd need to spend money on a pole master. I'd invest the money in your guiding solution instead.
