I have just managed to do a fairly accurate initial Polar Alignment without too much trouble .... I now want to move onto a Pointing File.
Looking at the last two versions of the Autoslew manual the explanation of how to carry out a Pointing File manually simply fizzles out
The manual suggests that I use the Sequence software and carry out an "Autopoint" proceedure .... but I this software seems to be too advanced for me at the moment and I seem to think that it needs a CCD camera ... which I don't have.
The Autoslew manuals also say that there is information about the Autopoint procedure in the Sequence Manual ... there is absolutely no mention of this in the manual that come with my mount and memory stick!!!
I am happy to do everything manually even if it does take longer.
I am assuming that the process of doing a Pointing file is a more extended version of doing the same that I used for the Polar Alignment .... but with some added bits along the way ... and at the end. For example ... do I have to set a "New Home Position" at the very end of the procedure???? The manual doesn't say.
So ... could some kind person give me a step-by-step checklist of what is needed before I take the plunge?
Any help would be very much appreciated.
