I'm looking at acquiring my first goto mount and have decided on the Sky-Watcher EQ5 PRO Go-To. Stock seems to be low everywhere at the moment so I'm keeping my eyes peeled.
I have a few questions regarding alignment.
Although I will be taking the mount "out-and-about" I will mostly be using the EQ5 on my balcony at home; this will make alignment with polaris impossible. I'm relived to see the EQ5 allowas bright star alignment (with the scope beginning at north) which is great for the location.
My question is; am I able to choose which bright stars the mount will align with? for example, if the mount asks me to confirm the position of a star I cant see at all from the balcony, can I choose stars that are visible from my side of the building?
I'm very new to astrophotography and would like to be prepared before splashing out!
i recently got my first telescoop. with the EQ5 mount and the enhanced dual axis motor drive ( http://www.robtics.nl/product_info.php?cPath=27_35&products_id=5465 )
is there a way to control my telescoop via my laptop instead of using the the basic hand controller.
i googled a bit and found a few things like EQMOD EQDIR with ASCOM. does this also word with my mount.
