I never knew that to be the case, though being new to this area I had no idea. Thank you for the info.

I have been doing what you suggested. That is how I finally found Saturn, by the software that came with my tasco. It is really easy to use. Just put in a direction, time, place and the sky appears as it should. It is very accurate and if I save it to my time and location I don't have to enter the coordinates every time I bring it up. I can use the find option to locate any object and print out the chart.

The main reason I wanted to polar align my scope is that I thought it would make it easier to follow objects in the sky. Am I not correct in that belief?
