Using the Chart to Position the Telescope
Each time you move the scope to a new position via one of the positioning methods, a
new chart is drawn in the Chart area. This chart is centered on the reported position of

can also use the chart to update the telescope positioning (where the telescope computer
thinks it's aimed) to the actual position of the scope.
