Question Anyone with experience with CGEM alignment

Hi All,

New to Astronomy, just got myself a Celestron 9.25" EdgeHD on a CGEM Mount.

I had my first attempt at aligning the scope this weekend....So frustrating! i even tried for the first 3 hrs with the scope mounted backwards!!! rookie mistake.

I have A Starsense finder camera connected so hoped that would help but i think that there are too many obstructions on the sky line...trees houses etc.

Also due to obstructions i could not find the celestial pole.

I have ordred a pole finder scope to slot in the body of the CGEM, but this will only help when i am in open spaces.

Any other tips or advice welcome.

Cheers
Ben
