Re: large alignment error with polemaster & mach2

Terri Zittritsch

Hi Andrea,    I was one of those who originally had poor polar alignment with polemaster, and then purchased a RAPAS and justified it for when I'm out without a computer.  It is another nice piece of kit!   Of course right after buying the RAPAS I figured out the issue for me, which was the exposure/gain settings.  When I check my alignment with PHD2, it's within the level of accuracy of the software (don't really see any drift) over several minutes.  

best of luck!

Hi Terri,
Thank you.
I havealso  tried What you suggest, larger gain , and can see several stars. No luck.
I also have the AP 900 adapter, the polemaster is firmly attached.
The last thing I will check is the location.
Honestly I don’t remember the setting: when I received the camera I have tried at home and I could have filled in An approximate latitude.
I am having a one week break, but when back that will be the first check.
I do hope is simple like that ( I will feel a little silly but happy :-)
