I have a Celestron STL 130 with a SkyQ Link WIFI adapter. I use the SkySafari 6 Plus App for IOS and it usually works correctly, but sometimes it has erratic behavior or misalignment. I think something is wrong with the alignment procedure. I describe the procedure that I use with some questions:
1. When turning on the mount I'm not sure I have to start from one position of the tube. Sometimes when I turn it on I have it at 0º of Altitude and 0º of Azimut (North orientation) Is it necessary? Or it is possible start from any position of the tube
2. I also do not check the time, nor the day nor coordinates stored in the mount are synchronized or approximate to those of SkySafari, but I think it is not necessary to have full control SkySafari. Is it correct, or do I have to update this data in the mount before connecting with SkySafari?
3. I do not align with the HC, only with Sky Safari, although sometimes, for ease, to move the telescope I use the movement buttons of the HC. Can they be used if they alter the alignment?
4. For the alignment method I read that SkyAling is recommended as manual alignment. What is the recommendation using SkySafari to have the best alignment?
