5.2. Sync to Target

This operation will match the telescope's current coordinates to Target Right Ascension and

Declination. After slewing to an object, press MENU—then scroll to “Sync to Target” and press ENTER.
Follow the screen to do the sync. Using this function will re-calibrate the computer to the selected object.
Multiple syncs can be performed if needed. This operation is most useful to find a faint star or nebula near a
bright star.

speed to make the centering procedure easier. Simply press a number (1 through 9) to change the speed.

Sync to Target does the same thing as one star alignment except that you choose the object to

“sync” to. “One star align” chooses the star/object for you.
