You will polar align with sharpcap...you don't move to targets during that process. I'm not sure why you need to worry about the dec/ra marking...I don't, but maybe i'm missing something.
I would add
- double check focus on guide scope and don't forget to take darks for the guide camera in PHD.
- PHD only needs to connect to POTH for the mount, it can connect directly to the guide camera.
my 2 cents
