This is probably a silly question but if you have a "go to" mount, and then buy a GPS unit to go with it, will you still have to align the unit each time?

Hi Joop and welcome :D

Don't have GPS but I think the answer is that this will only input accurate date, time and location info for you. You still need to do the accurate alignment at the eyepiece.

have a look at this thread to see what others have found:

Hope this helps,
