For another project (a Baker-Schmidt OTA discussed in the Astrophotography Talk forum), it would be very helpful if the astrotracer function worked for me. So I watched a youtube video where someone showed how to rotate the cam, put in a fresh battery, and imitated her motions exactly. To my amazement, each calibration succeeded on the first try!

OK - any pointer to this video. Because I have never understood exactly how to do the rotation. I have some guesses, but I am not sure.


Might it be this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rW4XNbLYt0

yes, that is the one.


Happy for you! I tried it in my k3ii with no success. Maybe i need to send my camera to that lady to give it a try.
