Polar Alignment

Finally, we have the Polar Alignment window, which is intended to provide help in performing an accurate polar alignment using your mount’s polarscope. To use this feature, the software needs to calibrate the orientation of your polarscope. Instructions on how to do this will be posted on the Documentation page. Once calibrated, assuming you haven’t moved moved your mount since you did the calibration, you should be able to simply click Align and the mount will rotate in RA to position the Polaris circle in the correct position for alignment. You can then use the alt/azimuth adjustment bolts to polar align your mount. Once you are done, click the Home button to return the mount to the home position for mounting your scope.
