Calibrate my MPU6050

hello i'm new to electronics,
i will be using a gyroscope in my project, and want to know how to calibrate it.
Can you please inform me of the first steps to get to zero and locate my measurements.
thank you for advance

most libraries should have a calibration routine.

After power up and setup is ran, sum together a few 100 readings and divide by the number of readings to get a gyro offset. Sum the offset to the operation readings.

Have the MMU on a flat solid surface.

As above, but subtract the average gyro offset value for each axis from future readings.

Calibrating the accelerometer is more complicated, as it requires scale factors as well as offsets. Adafruit has several tutorials.
