Telescope Autostar

i got question about meade telescope?

i just bought meade 90mm telescope it was about $200 and it comes with autostar controller. i tried aligning it and i put my telescope on 0 degrees like flat not up or down just in middle. then it tells me to point north i did and then it says searching for stars. it searches for 1 star and the telescope keeps going down till it hits the middle part and the motor like creaks all times and moves scope. the aligning never got right its been me over 5 hours of aligning only thing i saw was moon. i am so confused how to find planets at night around 8 o clock and at morning around 7am. i really need help please. how do i align since it comes with autostar controller. please help!!! this is link to how it looks like. -------

You need to point the scope directly at polaris for the alignment. You would probably benefit from stellarium, it's a free download. You can learn to guide the scope around manually without autostar. Use stellarium to help you locate Mars, Jupiter, Orion, and andromeda.
