:S [SIZE="Large"][/SIZE][COLOR="Red"][/COLOR]I have PROUDLY owned a Meade LXD 75 with a Celestron 8"SCT for the past three months. In that time I have only managed to align it perfectly just once!
Without knowing exactly what you are doing or not doing, it is impossible to give you specific advice...but the following may help:
Run off a good, strong, fully charged DC source like a jump start battery pack.
When you are centering alignment stars, MAKE _SURE_ YOU ARE CENTERING THE CORRECT STARS.
Time on your hands?
