Thanks for compiling the PDF , a lot easier to read now
Hope the document helps newcomers into the hobby
Well done !

PS: In regard to polar alignment of your mount , there are many many ways to achieve this, however I chose the Synscan method mainly because it is fairly straight forward , it is included in your hand controller menu, it teaches you a bit about the night sky and you get pretty good results.Ive used his method for nearly 4 years ( originally using an Orion 20mm 70deg illuminating centering eye piece ) and now only takes me 10 to 15 minutes using BYEOS on my laptop with sub arc minute error

Good luck all
