Hi all,

I just bought a tracker (iOptron) and iOptron app as well, currently I am struggling with polar alignment since I am in Southern Hemisphere, the Polaris Australis is very dim, I could see the Southern Cross. I wanted to do 2-3 min long exposure.
Any tip/ help would be appreciated.
Cheers

I have no experience with the iOptron but make sure you have it set for Southern Hemisphere. The switch marked N/S should be set to "S".
