Hi, I have a Celestron 8" Evolution with StarSense. Once I have enabled Auto Align, done the calibration stars, and enabled Auto Align again - after all that is done, will the telescope then automagically track the first object I choose to observe? I have read all the manuals etc but I haven't used a telescope with tracking before, only manual ones. I feel I might be missing something very obvious here but such is the nature of learning! My learning curve is still very steep!! My understanding is that the telescope will track automagically, I don't have to enable tracking as such. I can select 3 tracking modes - Sidereal, Lunar and Solar. I believe the tracking defaults to Sidereal. Do I have that right? IE I don't have to switch tracking on as such? Note - I only have a StarSesne HC, it didn't come with a NexStar HC - will this be OK? Does re-centering an object in the eyepiece while tracking damage or strain the motors? Thanks for any advice, opinions or thoughts Siouxsie
