This section is divided into information for TelRad alignment, the Two-Star Pointing method, Tpoint Pointing method, and finally tips on how to adjust the telescope polar alignment. A Two-Star model can be created much faster than a Tpoint model, which requires at least 4 or 5 stars.[check this!] The disadvantage of the Two-Star method is that it requires an external measurement of the telescope pole in encoder counts. Two ways to make this measurement are described in Section 5.2.3.
