Walking on the Moon

At Last :-) Skywatcher solar/daytime align!!


Recommended Posts

I've been frustrated for years that Skywatcher had no daytime/solar system align unlike Celestron, which made solar set up so much harder than it needed to be.  But they have finally done it :hello2::hello2::hello2:  I've just upgraded the software on the v4 handset from my Merlin mount and the option is there at last!  Now just need some sun to properly test it :rolleyes:  But the Merlin is looking a neat option for the eclipse next year (and other travelling too) - thanks for the advice @DrRobin :thumbright:

Which version of the software are you using - I can't find the option  in the x.x.38 version for my EQ5.

thanks in advance



I've got a version 4 handset and downloaded the latest software v4_38_09 from the skywatcher site :smile:

With it you get an extra option under alignment saying 'Daytime'
