Need Help... I have purchased a used 12" LX200 w/wedge back in March in Oklahoma City and everything seemed to work fine for selecting/slewing and tracking stars/planets. After I updated the software from 1.4 to 4.2g now I can't seem to align it correctly. I brought it back to Alaska with me and tried several times to align it but selecting a star or planet is still way off. I performed it step by step with the owners manual and tried watching several videos on You Tube but no help. Maybe it's my understanding of the Az/Dec ring and locks or just the Polar Align that I'm not doing right... Please Help?
You definitely are going to want to calibrate sensors.
Are you using it with the GPS turned on?
Can you tell us a bit more about how you are set up and what you are doing to get sky-aligned?
And just in case you didn't know, you have a local astro club:
And there are astro-talks and stargazing afterwards the first and third Fridays of the month during the winter at the Eagle River Nature Center. There will be club members there who may be able to help you as well.
The Campbell Creek Science Center in Anchorage also has astro-talks and stargazing (when clear) during the winter months on the second Thursday of the winter months. Or at least they used to when I lived there. Worth checking out.

Are you polar-aligning and doing a one-star alignment?
