I have a LX 850 12" and am having difficulty aligning following the manual and Autostar II screen directions. Is there a checklist or aligning guide I can obtain for this procedure?
Ones Star Alignment using Polaris

It's pretty straightforward. Set up the mount so the control panel faces away from Polaris. Select "Align" and watch it move to the polar home position on its own, acquire GPS lock, and slew to Polaris. Now it is ready for your participation. When prompted, center Polaris in the eyepiece using the mount's mechanical altitude and azimuth controls (NOT the handbox). Press Enter and watch it slew to the alignment star. When prompted, use the handbox buttons (leave the mechanical adjustments used in the previous step alone) to center the alignment star and press "Enter". All done. It's on pages 22 and 23 in the manual.

I do not get prompt to CTR Polaris in eyepiece. German north keeps scrolling even after I press ENTER. I get Synchronized only.
