Sent: Saturday, May 19, 2001 21:22:49 From: email@example.com (Bob Minnick) Compiled below is a list of the alignment stars for the ETX60AT. If you're a newbie like myself and my wife, we spend an hour or two before an observing session trying to figure out which alignment stars to use, pouring over our books and charts and sometimes picking the wrong star simply because its on the maps, but not in the astro-controller. So to simplify things we compiled this list, printed it out and keep it in a notebook along with our astronomy books and maps. I thought about putting the list on our website, but figured it would be best to give it to you. Post it if you like. I'm sure there are other newbies like ourselves who are still groping around in the dark.

Subject: alignment stars for the AutoStar 494 Sent: Friday, September 13, 2002 20:40:53 From: email@example.com (Jeffrey Hundstad) I've taken your web document: http://www.weasner.com/etx/autostar/autostar494-stars.xls [noted in Joel Yerby's email above] titled: This EXCEL attachment is an elaboration on the text file list of alignment stars for the AutoStar 494 It was found on: http://www.weasner.com/etx/autostar/as_494align_stars.html [this page] I've corrected then added information and finnally made it into a webpage. I found it a lot more convenient than the Excel document. I'd like you to copy it to your site if you want to use it. Please don't just link to it since it is on my work machine. Thanks thanks THANKS for your wonderful site, -- Jeffrey Hundstad
