The 2-3 star alignment routine steps you through each star.   The best way to see if it worked is to go to settings and enable show alignment.  The alignment coefficients are displayed on the main page.  These should be near about 1 and 0.  If the numbers are huge then the alignment is bogus.  It might be bogus if they are more or less correct but definitely bogus if way out.  Another indication of bogus alignment is NaN listed as telescope position.  

Btw for planets for sure just do a 2 star.  It's easier and plenty good enough for planets I believe.
