Saturn, Jupiter

Steps to successful StarSense Setup

  1. Make sure tripod is level

  2. Align telescope to north

  3. Make sure gps is the time source on StarSense and time and date correct

  4. Make sure tracking is on sidereal time not solar

So when I did this in my last astronomy session when I had StarSense move the telescope to Jupiter it was several degrees south of Jupiter.  I also discovered the telescope would track Jupiter and Saturn better on sidereal time then solar time.
