    Howdy all,

    I have the EQ5 mount, and how to align a Polar Scope with the only guidance coming from the provided "Directions" is confusing as hell to an absolute newbie who, until this one arrived had never even seen a EQ mount before (except in pictures)..

    The more I read the "Directions", the more confused I get..

    (We'll get back to this)

    Hello DizzyGazer,
    I own a heq5 pro and hardly ever looked at the manual (= Directions?). Look at the Internet: type " aligning heq5" in Google and you will find lots of interesteing facts about this issue. On Youtube there is a good movie about aligning the (h)eq5!

    A couple quick methods to help with polar alignment are posted in the "downloads" section of this forum. (Polar Finder instructions (under Helpful Astronomy tools) and Polar Finderscope 2.04 (under Astronomy Software). I have and am using both and they work for me. As you mention above the instructions provided by Skywatcher leave a lot to be desired.

    Hi all, my name is Darren and I upgraded my EQ5 with the dual motors so I now have the EQ5 Pro. I also use EQMOD and a wireless game pad and Stellarium to control my mount and my SW 200P.
