On my last outing I parked my scope using the Autostar Hand Controller panel. It appeared to work but when I powered up the scope last night and slewed to Vega the scope headed a spot in the west and below the horizon. I’m going to have to go to some of the Yahoo groups and see if others have had this problem. After attempting a simple two star alignment on Altair and Deneb I received an alignment failure message. I redid the procedure and received a 59′v and 8′> success. I’m going to check my polar alignment using WCS on my next venture out. I’ve just downloaded the DSI version of the program.
After that frustration all I did was to stay within Lyra and checked out Epsilon Lyra and M57. This time I parked the scope using 497 hand controller.
