Summary:
Two-star alignment with four star calibrations is successfully completed (thank you for your support). I took several photos of Orion Nebulae (M42). 

Objects viewed:
Sirius M42

Problems encountered:
I cannot create the best focus on a star (I used Sirius) with eyepieces using the Robofocus. The object is way out of focus and I cannot tell which direction IN/OUT gives better.
