Magellan Telescope Computer System Instruction Manual
 VII. Appendix A
IMPORTANT NOTICE! Never use a telescope or spotting scope to look at the Sun! Observing the Sun, even for the shortest fraction of a second, will cause irreversible damage to your eye as well as physical damage to the telescope or spotting scope itself.
The following stars from the STAR catalog are excellent beacons for alignment and are used in that process. They are also spread throughout the sky to allow allowing a selection of several during any given night or season. They also make excellent objects for the synchronize function of Magellan which will improve the pointing accuracy for an area surrounding the "sync" object selected.
