CG5 GT Equatorial mount- help!

Recommended Posts

Just bought one of these.

But I'm a bit of a technophobe.

Reading about Polar alignment in the manual scared me rigid.

Anyone help me with really, REALLY simple instructions for Polar alignment?

Assume ZERO knowledge!

Here are some instructions on assembling and polar-aligning your mount, and here is an overview of the go-to system, including a walk-through with that specific mount.

point the mount axis (not the scope) at the pole star and go from there

Many thanks, Richard- appreciated.

Still a bit technical!
