Aligning NorthStar For The First Time

I have successfully comleted the proccess all the way up until step 4 where it told me to choose a country and press enter, then choose the city that I am closest to and press enter, up until then everything was fine, but then instead of the message saying "Center Star 1", it says "Center Star 2", and if I attempt to continue the setup proccess, the message will next say "Center Star 3", I cannot get it to start with Center Star 1, I have tried removing the 9v battery from the NorthStar computerized base for several hours to allow it to reset itself, but it always starts out with Center Star 2 when I reach that portion of step 4: Set The Location.
Please Help,
George Hudson

What am I doing wrong with my star alignment process? Please help.


I don't know your scope in detail, but if you can read this you should be able to go to the user manual here
http://www.bushnell.com/manuals/telescopes/NorthStar788840_788850_788890_788831_788846_2010Revised5LIM_web.pdf?CFID=36472283&CFTOKEN=de4b165f584ad635-AF7E3AEE-A567-68CB-F21AC262CDAFA920&

There are a few things common to these goto hand controls.
- you must enter the time and date accurately, and be correct about daylight saving settings, and observe the date format
- you most likely will have to go through time and date setting steps each time, but the control will probably remember one of these at least. You will see what it has already set when you come to that step next time around.
- the mount should be leveled as far as possible, or pointing errors will appear when the scope slews around.
It could be that the scope has no idea at all where the align star is, when using Earth Align. You are teaching it that, but if the rough location it tries to reach is way way off, it seems you need a second star and Align Star mode. Often with these devices you need one star from either side of the meridian.
You could also start again with a different city, but one in the opposite direction to the first. I would try cities all around the compass to see if one gives a better result.

Computer not accurate


Looking through the manual (link follows) please check that you set the time in 24 hour clock with timezone correctly. Also the date & of course location. I see no reset function in the manual but I guess leaving the batteries out for a while will reset it. Manual link: http://www.bushnell.com/customer_service/manuals/telescopes/78-8876_1LIM.pdf Also although it says you do not need to know where the stars are you're aligning to it's good to have some idea that you're actually aligning with "Mizar" or whatever. You can find maps of the night sky where you are on this link: http://www.wunderground.com/sky/index.asp Finally check if there is a local astronomy group that you can join, they are always ready to encourage & help people.
