Ds 2090 Refracting telescope w/ autostar

I need help using this autostar remote, i tried it and i can't find any objects, i just see some small stars, when i do alignment, if i point it north but i miss by a split will this have a major impact, thanks. i know it has to be horizontally level and pointing north but i dont know if i am doing this right. Can you give me a video or a instruction manual to figure this out. The instruction manual that comes with my telescope doesnt explain this is detail.

You first need to align the finder scope and follow some basic procedures for using a telescope. There are outlined in my article Telescope FAQs
