Maybe I don't have the most up to date manual. Can someone point me to the most recent manual. My manual only mentions 3 star and auto align whereas my handset talks about a 2 star alignment and does not even mention a 3 star alignment nor does it mention all star polar alignment nor an auto align??? I have HC 4.21 and MC 5.20.

Jimmy,

Look about 2/3 of the way down the list of Celestron Manuals here.

Jimmy,

We've discussed this many times before in threads where you've been posting.

For your firmware use the hand controller section of the CGEPro manual. Another option is Mike's revised ASGT manual on nexstarsite.com

Only use the original hard copy ASGT manual for referencing the hardware.

Mark,

Are you the unofficial CG5 support guru?

Hardly ... lol.

Just owned one since 2006. It's been interesting after owning a variety of Celestron scopes and mounts that you start to get an idea of what C is doing ... which isn't really apparent if you are just starting off with one of them.

I also tease Jim a little because we've had quite a few back and forth conversations over the years.
