  1. thanks all for your ideas. I have Stellarium but I don't manage to measure the angles. Do I need a plug-in or something to enable that feature?
  2. Hello everyone, I am having trouble with the settings of my Orion Intelliscope system. I am supposed to calibrate the intelliscope with 2 stars distant from at least 60 degrees. Could someone tell me if the 2 stars I am using (Procyon & Aldebaran) are at least 60 degrees apart from eachother? Using the fist/finger way of measuring seems to me that they are just over 60 degrees. I am having wrap errors of 3.4 so that is quite a lot. Maybe another issue is that my balcony is not totally flat. Thanks for your confirmation. Scotlandyard

  8. Hello, My name is Michael, 33 years old and currently living in Richmond, Virginia. New to the forum and new to astronomy. I am reading a lot lately to figure out which will be my first telescope and accessories. My interest for the moment and after a few weeks of research is going to the Orion SkyQuest XT10i dobsonian. Looking forward to learning more about all the beautiful things to look at in the sky by reading all the interesting topics that have been developed on this forum... Michael
