I have marked this as [Off-Topic] because this does not answer your question
Why wait for a clear night? Why not set up your kit during the day, or even
indoors on cloudy nights? Then you will have plenty of time for fiddling
around and getting things right without wasting precious observing time.
Once configured the way you want, write yourself a short set-by-step setup
guide. That way you won't forget something vital on the night.
As an example, I often have my scope (an LX90-Classic) in my den connected
up to my computers whilst writing or playing with software. I set it up
level and North pointing (well sort of North/ish), do a two-star alignment
(accept whatever it gives me), connect up StarryNight, MaximDL, ACP,
AstroPlanner, ASCOM stuff or whatever and let the fun commence G>. Other
times I just use the ASCOM Scope Simulator, it's not quite so noisy.
Just a thought.
