Polar alignment with sharpcap 2.9

Recommended Posts

red dwalf

Last night I used the polar alignment tool in sharpcap 2.9 which is free, 

Took two minutes to do and happy with the results would highly recommend, and a lot cheaper than pole master.

Got it down to 00.00.05

Yes an invaluable tool rob , certainly saves your knees , some people unlock the mount to swing 90 degrees for the second part of pa  I found slewing better  and using team viewer on my phone to tweak as pc in shed

There's a good walk-through of the system on Sharpcap 3.1..

Wow what a time saver this is.

 

It saves a huge chunk of time with setup of my tracker and GEM. Sorry, I didn't discover it earlier.

 

I've tried a Polemaster emulator before, but this is so much better in every way.
