Re: [ap-gto] 400GTO Alignment Problem

All,



While going through the polar alignment routine this weekend my mount

insisted that it had to be nearly in 'Park Position 1' when pointing

at Polaris. Normally it points to Polaris from roughly 'Park Position

3'. I tried numerous things like verifying my time and location info,

but that didn't seem to help. When asked to slew across the meridian

when pointing near zenith it seemed to get confused about how to get

there.



Any ideas what I was doing wrong?



Thanks,



Gary

You might have chosen the wrong starting star. In other words, the star you

started with may have been a different one than you thought it was.
