Just purchased a Pictor 201XT for autoguiding and am having trouble with how it should be orientated to the rest of the scope (LX90). The instructions say to have the autoguider parallel to the RA circles. I', using a Meade OAG, what heppens if I have to rotate the OAG to get a better guide star? I cant picture what axix has to be alligned with what. Any help would be really appreciated. Cheers Mike
