    with “go to” systems you really dont have to know any star names to get started, after setting the mount up correctly pointed to north leveled just start align process and slew to one of the first stars in the 2 star alignment process and it will be the brightest star in the general direction of your finder scope. thats how i was able to align without knowing the stars before hand.

    I have an 8″ celestron shmdt-cass that came with a small finderscope with the red sighting dot. Would a bigger finder scope be easy to sight and to stay in position (the switch is alittle hard to turn on and even this can get it out of alignment)?
    thank you!
