Re: Polar alignment through main scope #iEXOS-100 #alignment #sharpcap


I've done a polar alignment with my D5300, BYN and Sharpcap.  It did work, but it was slow and clumsy compared to using the guidescope and its camera.  One of those things that you do once, just to see if it you can make it work.  :-)
My $0.02 - simpler and faster to just use the guidescope + sharpcap.  Then once polar aligned, disconnect sharpcap and when ready for guiding, connect up PHD2.
