    I wish that Meade should also include the Sun as part of objects could be used for aligning the telescope during the daytime.
    Crescent Moon sighting has become a hobby for many people around the globe. During daytime the Sun is always there and easy to use for rough alignment, and the crescent is also not far away from the Sun.
    We will appreciate if you can incorporate the Sun as in addition to other bodies for alignment.
