Question about Konusky 200 Motor (400 x 200mm) Telescope
I am having a great deal of trouble aligning the finderscope. I need to insert a wad of paper in the back of the sliding bracket to even come close to alignment. HELP
SOURCE: cannot get it to align
Most goto scopes must 1st have the tripod level using a bubble level, and some must be TRAINED during the day time on a distant object.
Time, Date, and Site must also be correct. The scope may also have a HOME position.
Usually you need to center TWO or THREE alignment stars before it knows the sky.
Did you do all of this? Read my TIPS on goto scopes on my profile page.

SOURCE: how to align pointer? which lens
During the daytime point the scope at a distant object like the top of a telephone pole. Without moving the scope adjust the small finder scope crosshairs so they point to the same spot.
Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. This is your lowest magnification. Practice focusing on a distant object using this low power eyepiece.
