The scope I would want to use is an 80mm Altair guidescope piggybacked with guidescope rings, so it’s looking in the same direction as the main scope, but how accurately are they aligned with the axis of the mount, as with saddles, rings and dovetail bars in between, it is probably not exactly inline, hence the question...

I believe that to be irrelevant! The program takes calculations from your scope positions to align the MOUNT, you not aligning your guidescope alone to Polaris.

I've used a altair guidescope with sharpcap and it worked better than with a 9x50..

I think guys we need to take this elsewhere as Notty only wants a polemaster

Haha thank you guys!  I managed a single-figure number of nights for AP this year, so I really don't have time for anything other than plug and play.  (Shame I don't have the money too, otherwise I wouldn't be looking for a bargain lol)
