After that for the hand control follow the the last version manual for Nexstar, not the one that appears in the peviou links.

One point worth noting since the release of the CGEM and the CGEPro is that the old CGE manual is now out of date. It still lists Polar Align as an exercise on Polaris alone, whereas I'm using the anystar align that came when I upgraded the NexStar software. There are a few other changes too. these are documented with the Handset software version upgrade.
I'm sure the more expert among the inmates here dont really need good manuals, but I'm afraid that I appreciate a good comprehehensive and well written manual.

Yes Gerry, it would be nice to see new all incorporated CG5 and CGE manuals but in light of todays economic issues and the fact that the CGE is likely approaching the end of it's sales lifespan it's not likely we're going to see anything.
Welcome to CN by the way ... great first post.

Ysou are right, the manual leaves much to be desired. It fails to include step-by step instructions, with detailed photos, on setting up and polar alignment. There is almost no material related to using the mount for imaging. There is important info missing, like detailed instructions on adjusting the altitude setting. Owners must learn through forums and user groups, and we can thank members of CN for being there!
