Abstract

Much of the material in this chapter is based upon the “NexStar Alt-az Alignment Guide” written by John Carlyle, Alain Fraysse, Carroll Morgan, and myself in February 2001. The original document is available in the files section of the Yahoo NexStar Group, as well as at the NexStar Resource Site. Additional insight on the NexStar 8i was provided in tests performed by Jean Piquette and presented in his “Alignment Tips for i Series Telescopes”, also available in the files section of the Yahoo NexStar Group.
