Simple mount question

Recommended Posts

Thats what I was hoping. I don't want to start imaging until after 11pm, so didn't want to have to do a lot of slewing about at that time of night. I also didn't want to have to do it now and then leave the mount running for a long time before its needed. Saving battery power for when its most wanted.

Polar alignment was pretty accurate. I placed polaris on the circle of the polarscope where it should have been at the time, and it was still on the circle 2hrs later so I pointed the mount where I wanted it and everything went well. I haven't fully checked the subs yet, but it stayed on track for the duration of the imaging sequence., and guiding was stable up until I lost the guidstar 2 frames from the finish.

Then it all went to pot.
