Hi from North Wales

Postby Trish Styles » Tue Dec 30, 2014 10:04 am

Hi my name is Trish and I have just started looking at the skies. My husband bought me a second hand, only used once, Sky Watcher AZ127 for Christmas. I've managed to look at the moon several times and my oldest grandson who is 6 looked at the moon last night using the lunar filter. Wow he was very excited. Having problems using the auto scan alignment for two stars has anyone got any advice? Looking forward to the forum.

What's the problem? If it's which stars to point the 'scope at during alignment then use a planisphere or a planetarium app on a mobile device or PC.
