    Default I Figured a way to fine tune my wedge with my Iphone



    Tell me if this could work. I got Skyview app on my Iphone. I upgraded it for 1.99 and calibrated it. There is a flat place on the back of my scope that I can lay the phone against and it shows me a stellarium like pic. I then put it on a level surface and let the phone point the scope to polaris. once there the location was higher than the circle. I then used the fine tune screw to center the dot in the circle.
    I can co this inside on a table. I will see if it helps later on. I am new to this and do not have a go to scope. . My scope is a Meade LX 10 8" by the way. Any one here use Sky view to find targets?

    I know that SkyView played an inspiring role in my decision to purchase my spaceprobe the other day, and although I haven't used it in conjunction with my scope yet, I plan to do so on first light.

    Just remember to keep your phone at the lowest brightness setting.
