GOwenC Posted March 23, 2021 Share Posted March 23, 2021 Greetings, I bought my 15 y/o son the Nat Geo branded NG114mm Newtonian scope with equatorial mount for Christmas. Despite watching some videos and trying to digest some written instructions on how to properly set up the equatorial mounts we just can't seem to get our heads wrapped around it. The instructions all seem to be very obtuse and arcane. As an aging orienteer, I believe I understand the concepts of orientation, azimuth, declination and whatnot clearly enough but somewhere the dynamic nature of the mount in relation to these concepts eludes me. Can anybody here point me to a very clear and concise explanation on how to pull this all together? I'd appreciate it. Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
