2 star alignmemt trouble

Post by CEtherington » Tue Feb 26, 2019 7:07 pm

Evening All
I'm having trouble doing a 2 star alignment, on my goto. I go through the motions, but instead of alignment successful, I get "Caution previous PNE applied"
Any guesses why? I'm awaiting replies,, sitting in the middle of a field!!!
Thanx
You can run with the big dogs, or sit on the porch & bark.

According to this thread on the CloudyNights forum you can ignore the message:
https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/4916 ... ?p=7352587
It sounds like it's something which may pop up when your latest alignment is done with a different method from the previous one.

The message would actually read "NPE": which is Non-Perpendicular Error".
Apparently you can zero it from one of the Settings menus, which will suppress the caution message.


If you're still struggling, bring your mount along to our Workshop session next week.

Thanx for that Ross, I did eventually get alignment, after 4 or 5 tries! And was out for a few hours. I shall bring the mount in anyways.
