Need tips for using auto star for telescope EXT 125 meade

    Just wondering if there are any experienced autostar users on hubpages to give me some tips on using the auto align. 

    I have read the manual, watched the video and looked on a few forums and I still can't really understand what I am doing wrong.

    When I do the auto align, it never points to a region that actually has a "bright star" to center so I just guess. 

    I know where Jupiter is so I can test the alignment to see if it is correct and it never is.  I do the moon too of course because that is the easiest object to find.

    Today we went and got a level and tracked true north ourselves to see if there is a problem with where we have it set up.  Other than that if anyone has some tips let me know.

    Thanks,
    Sandy
