Hi. I have a 8" SCT with AVX mount. I live in norway at a lattitude of 60 degrees north. The sun sets but i am in perpetual twighlight. I want to align my mount but cannot see the stars. I could see jupiter and moons. Should I just view the planets and sun and forget about alignment until winter when it is minus 20 degrees. I need alignment for astrophotography. The darkest the sky gets is nautical twilight which is between 0025 and 0205. Thanks Phil
Hi guys, Having had difficulty in aligning and never actually managing to get my AVX to track to the standard I know it can, is the Celestron StarSense gadget the answer? I know I can align my scope accurately if I put the effort in and having moved last year I’ve been unable to have my mount fixed on a pier so I’m seriously considering this piece of kit as an easier way to align and to motivate me to get out more often. Please share your thoughts..... Adaaam75
