  1. Hi All... so glad I have found this cummunity and really looking forward to joining in... I now have a Skywatcher 130P with a synScan mount and the instructions are just poop! So far, I have managed to put it together and had 1/2 an hour's viewing (on Christmas night) afert 3 hours trying to align it... oooh it was cold! Tell me... is it just practice required for alignment or is there an easier way? I went for the 2 star alignment on Vega and Capella - I am in Cambs. I levelled the mount, inputted all my long lat details and correct time from Tim &c, but, should I have pointed the telescope north before I started? Anyone with a similar model and simple good plain tips for a beginner would be much appreciated. Many thanks Sco
