I expect Dan will post a long answer to the question with several PS's, but I welcome help from anybody.

I have recently purchased a Meade SuperWedge for my 10" LX200 GPS. I want to start some longer exposures and simply looking at objects at zenith. I have installed it correctly and have the correct magnetic dec. My problem is when I try to align the scope through the Autostar II. I know basically how it should work but the instructions confuse me. Things like when the Autostar tells me to put the scope in "Polar Home position (See manual)" and I look in the manual and find nothing on Polar Home position. I would like, if it is not too much to ask, for someone to post a step-by-step method for aligning the scope. I probably could find this if I seach the internet for a while, but as I know Dan has the same scope with the same wedge, and is an overall nice and helpful guy, I figured I would ask here. I thank you in advance for any help you can give.
