Hi, thanks for your response, I had not considered the cone error.
But even so I have a doubt, that I cannot solve it considering the cone error, which although it affects the position in different areas of the celestial sphere.
The punctual case with Saturn, which is currently in Sagittarius, one of the stars I used to align was Nunki, very close to Saturn's position. If I move the mount with the information of the catalog to Altair, it arrives well, (not centered by the effect of the cone error), if I move it to Shaula it also arrives relatively well, if I turn to M8 it also arrives well, but Saturn remains quite far (with Jupiter the same thing happens with Saturn), Saturn it is not seen in the telescope's visual field as in the other cases.
I would expect to see the same displacement of the stars in this area of the celestial sphere when I point to Saturn or Jupiter, but it is much more and they are out of the telescope's visual field.
I correct the cone error of my telescope assembly and do the same exercise.
