Thanks for taking time to respond to my post. I have been trying other different methods from different forums, Facebook groups, etc. it is quite challenging to find the Sigma Octantis since it is so faint.
To my understanding, if I really wanted to spot on the Polaris Australis, I would need to have software (sharpcape,etc) and hardware (polemaster, telescope, etc) which I think it is one or two level up (deep sky, stars etc). At the moment I focus on the Milky way and widefield, imaging in the field, dark sky, sometimes you need to hike for a few Kms, and carry small laptop, I am not up to there yet.
once again really appreciated your posts you both.
