My problem is a slight orthagonal differance from the mount and the telescope. This is detected by picking a star on the meridian and changing the telescope from side to side. This is achieved by adjusting the clock by plus or minus one hour.Any dispacement in RA is a measure of this. I have been intending to shim up the mounting plates but have never got round to this. Once done it should improvove both the pointing accuracy and guiding.Must get this done but I have a 50 -50 chance of chosing the right end!
