EQ6R-PRO Synscan Setup


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 When setting up the Syncscan for goto alignment, do I set daylight savings to 'No' (since we are in GMT and no longer in BST at the moment)? 


With 'Yes' selected, my first alignment star Vega is as always off by about 20°. 


Polar alignment is as accurate as I can get manually.


I have timezone set to +0.00. Coordinates and time are correct for my location and date is set in American configuration. I've also reset the cone error and other error adjustments back to zero.


Daylight savings is the only thing left that seems to be amiss.


Sorry if this is a daft question I'm a noob haha.
