My scope is set up and aligned, glad that worked out...my problem is , when I use synscan controller, everything works fine, going

back to home position also good....

 First......  When I connect to Stellarium on Pc,  first when I go to the stars & the objects, they are off a bit?? Any way of synconising ?

Second... when I park the Teleascope, (Btw using Eqmod).. the parking Position is a mile off!!...Come on guy.s give me hint .. What am I doing wrong..

I had to use StellariumScope to get Stellarium and a mount I was testing to work together.

Cartes du Ciel worked out the box for me...

After you slew to your target use the eqmod arrows to center on the target then right click on it for the dropdown from there select the sync option ..
