This is my first post to stargazer lounge. It took me a while to get more proficient with the SS. The important things for me were to make sure I have a large enough unobstructed sky for doing the alignment. Once I had that, then it was important to calbrate the SS alignment to the telescope eyepiece. Once I did that, my goto objects come in pretty much dead center. I am using a Nexstar 6SE. I also have a Neximage Burst and have been taking a few pictures with it.
