    HEQ5 Polar Alignment Help (Newbie)

    Thanks Gav, So when the hand set asks about Polaris do i just ignore it ? Also when i do my 3 star alignment, i dont have a eyepiece for my ZS61 i only have my DSLR is this still ok to do the 3 star aligment ? Thanks
  10. HI All, Sorry for the thick question in advance I have just taken delivery of a new Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro mount and a Polemaster, the HEQ5 Pro is an upgrade from my Star Adventurer. I assembled the mount and i noticed there are two green dials one around the polar scope and one around where the counter weight shaft comes out of the mount, what are these and do i need to use them as i am using a Polemaster ? Also when i go to Polar align my mount, can i skip the instruction on the handset when it says about polar aligning, as i will be using the Polemaster. Thankyou.
  11. Hi All, I have just purchased the New Skywatcher EQM35-Pro Mount as a upgrade to my Star Adventurer, i will be using my William Optics ZS61 scope with it. Can anyone give me some help on what to do when i go to do a 3 star alignment using just my Canon DSLR as i have no eye pieces for my scope, i also have BYEOS. Thanks
