The go to function of auto align is now complete and you can slew to any object in the Autostar database and when you look in the eye piece it should be there and remain there as the clock gears continue to track the object.
One reason I recommended you start when there is light, is that you have got to do a couple of things to insure success of this procedure.
The star will not be centered in the finder scope, you'll need to use the Autostar left, right , up, arrows to center it.
Then look in the eye piece for the scope and do the same thing.
