Hi. I’ve Celestron cpc 1100 EdgeHD. When I try to allign the scope through skyportal via WiFi module, after completing the plate solving process, it asks me to select one brightest star and press go-to option to move the scope towards that star for example Vega. In skyportal it stops at an exact Vega location, however in eyepiece I can’t see it. I know I have to fine allign, so when I manually fine allign the scope in the eyepiece, the cross mark in the skyportal moves far away from Vega and then refuses to allign because it has to be Certain degree close to Vega. Can anyone advise how to fix it ?
Last night was the second time I used my StarSense alignment using SkyPortal. The first time I had a half dozen alignment failures and one success. Last night I tried 15 times, using SkyPortal to align my Celestron Evolution 8. Each time it was able to align two out of three stars, but always on the third star I would get the error message, "Alignment Pointing Error too Large." I have no idea what this means or how to remedy the problem. Would appreciate any enlightenment. Joe
