It's worth downloading the latest software as well which no longer uses the green and red squares but a cross you need to centre in a box.

Yes, use the latest beta version. It's quite stable.

I could see some flickering of the stars on the screen last night, but they look very steady tonight. The two white boxes lock onto the stars nicely unless I move them too far then they just bounce all over.

Nope, it's bad seeing. My stars are nice and stable until this step also, many times. In these situations you can only align the boxes or whatever as best you can. Then, blow and go!

Polemaster alignment should be done with your mount completely powered down.  With PoleMaster you are doing a physical alignment only so should not have your mount powered up and tracking in anyway.

Are you sure of that?, the manual says that you have to do it via HC.

(Of course one of the things I've learned here, is not trusting too much in the manuals)
