Sure, the LS is capable of limited AP. I say limited only because it alt-az, and no autoguider port. But some folks here, like rigel123, have done great shots with the smaller ls 6 and DLSR. I hope to try my hand a DLSR, but thinking first of DMK21 style camera for moon/planetary, maybe double stars or similar.
BTW...familiar with Santaluces high school? I graduated there in 89. I lived right off of hypoluxo and congress.

The scope is being sold as the perfect scope for person who is new to telescopes and mounts and that's not the truth. It's a complicated and buggy piece of equipment. I'll try and help you if you can tell me what they have said to calibrate. I'm guessing either getting the camera centered and or training the drive. Neither are really that difficult once you get the hang of it.
