Help with EQ alignment and using Setting Circles

Recommended Posts

Ok, time for a real newb question.

I have an omni xlt 120 and was trying to use the setting circles to help me locate M13 last night and I have not got a clue.

I aligned the polar axis with Polaris (as best as possible) then pointed the scope at a known star and set the RA circle to the objects co-ordinates and locked it down. I then moved the scope to the co-ordinates for M13 but M13 was nowhere in sight :0( am I doing something wrong?
