Re: Polar alignment without using ExploreStars to do so?

Chris Tardif

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: I might say this another way.  Polar alignment is a phyical process to correctly place your mount.  It is independant of star alignment and any software you use  for image capture.

What is the length of the lens you are using?
