Re: Limited Sky View
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Hi chaps, with my limited sky view I am finding that my OTA ends up consistently slewing to around 15 degrees to the right of my selected alignment stars. The end of slew position means my target stars are outside the field of view of my finderscope. This results in a fair amount of final adjustment in order to centre the stars.
My mount when parked is pointing true north, level and so on and tracks fine. I am wondering whether it would help to start alignment with Polaris centred in my finder scope and not be quite so worried whether the mount is pointing North? In other words does the park position assume the OTA/mount is pointing north or at Polaris???
Your expert thoughts as always would be very much appreciated.
Kind regards, Brian
