      1. Fit your camera to the rear of the filter wheel and then fit the filter wheel to the rear of your telescope.
      2. Using the main imaging camera, take a series of images and adjust the focus of your telescope until the image is in focus.
      3. Screw the Lodestar or SXV-Autoguider to the threaded section of the top of the OAG and start to take images with the autoguider.
      4. Move the autoguider up and down the shaft until you achieve focus.
      5. Once you have achieved focus, lock the set screws.
      6. Your autoguider and main imaging camera are now par-focal and the system is ready to use.
