locked Re: 2 Star Alignment frustration #alignment


Hi Mario, I enjoyed your video on a “manual“ PA alignment with the ASIair pro. Like you, I cannot connect my iExos100 mount to the ASIair yet. Can I ask a couple of questions?

After you’re done with the PA, I assume you return the mount to the home position. Do you then open ExploreStars, and use the “Reset Alignment “ button? If you do, do you then do a 2/3 star alignment, or skip this step as you should already have an accurate PA.

Do you power on the mount before you do the ASIair PA, or only after you have completed the PA and returned the mount manually to its home position?

Thanks, Harry
