Re: Difference between Recalibrate and Sync
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
My understanding is that Sync is something you need to do only once after you initially assemble the mount. I've done it only once in 12 years since I set up my scope in the observatory. It helps to keep the scope up and the counterweights down.
However Recalibrate is something I use every time I use the scope. It 'fine tunes' the pointing in the region of sky where you are observing. You simply find a known object, recalibrate on it, then you know that your pointing is going to be pretty good at least in that region.
Hope that makes sense!

My friend and I have just about given up on the difference between Sync and Recalibrate with the AP900.
