Hi Gary,

A question on East-West side for the tube in the initial alignment with a GEM.

I read a few threads on Yahoo group but still am confused on this

Tried it all out for the first time last night and aligned on Acrux with the tube, that is myself and the focuser end was on the East side of the mount... is that right?

Got a warp factor for Acrux of 0.0 when it was in the crosshairs so I guess so far so good. Couldn't remember what to do next and stopped there, but hope to get out a few times next week to work it out.

Cheers,

Matt
