Where Is the Very Fine/Slow Slew Speed Rate Slider In SkySafari 6 Pro? (Answer: Read On!)

When trying to calibrate (or capture an alignment star) as I progress to my highest power eyepiece 7mm, invariably, when I try to fine-tune the centering of the star in the eyepiece (using the SkySafari buttons), at the point when I'm about to get the star centered, there's a kind of "click/clunk" sound and the star "snaps" back to the original position in the eyepiece (not the center point). I know with the HC you can switch from coarse to fine control when centering at high power, is there a way to do this with SkySafari (6 Pro), i.e., fine control of the slewing? If not, do you have any idea why at the critical point of obtaining a good centering of the star, the controls don't allow a final centering to take place?

 

Thank you for any help or suggestions,

Joe

    Hi Joe, 

    Please try the rate slider seen here.  Far left for micro/slow movements.  Thanks!

    Ah! Thank you so much, don't know how I overlooked this. I don't have a slider, but I do have a Rate scale one to four. I'm sure it's the same thing.

     

    Much thanks,

    Joe

    The SkySafari slider is actually 1-4 as well.  Clear skies, Joe!
