  1. Agree the handset option is far from ideal as when using Synscan for alignment it doesn't give you an option to choose stars that you recognise and are in your unobstructed view.. Eqmod gives you many more options but doesn't play with Skysafari software which is a great shame.
  2. When I informed my neighbour a couple of years ago that I have taken up Astronomy he looked at me quizzically and replied “ Really...?? “ lol !!

    Welcome .. it's a great hobby which I only discovered 4 years ago... only wish I found it earlier in my life !
  4. Had a little experience with ASIair and this seems to work..after polar alignment enter details in to the handset ..ie time location etc and do a one star alignment. After the alignment connect ASIair and then got to telescope settings and sync with telescope and this will take your location and time details direct from your tablet. Connect skysafari and enter your scope and connection details and you should be good to go. Select first target in skysafari and after slew finishes go to plate solve which then gives you option to re slew to centre the target. Use plate solve to accurately centre your targets as this seems to work well.
