Hi everyone,



I used PAC for the first time last night. Very easy and worked great.

I found that my rough alignment with the polar scope was off by about

0.5 degrees, judging by the amount of displacement in my 9mm recticle

eyepiece after PAC. Is this about what others are getting with their

polar scopes?

Hi Steve,



I get usually at 4 to 10 minutes of the pole using the polar scope.

When you build your model, what are the values you get when the model

converge?



Regards,



Marc

Hi Steve,



I don't know if I got lucky with my polar scope. I hope somebody else

could share there experience.



What was your mis-alignment (azimuth and elevation) before and after

using the PAC?



Regards,



Marc

Marc, I didn't pay close attention to the A/E numbers but will do this

the next time out. I'm estimating the 0.5 degrees from the PAC

displacement. Overall I'm happy with the polar scope, but I'll look

at it more closely next imaging session to see if anything can be

adjusted. But I might just leave well enough alone, since I can get

very close with PAC.
