But after I used the newer version 4.xx HC it took me all of 3 times out with the scope to completely forget ever doing a GPS alignment..
Personally i live quite well without the ability to a GPS alignment ..and I even smile more..

Last year I purchased a new HC (notice no "+" at the end of HC) before they are out of stock and all we have left is the less functional HC+. I still have my HC 1.6 as a back up.

I didn't realise there was any functionality not available with the Nexstar+ HC, what is it?
PS it was nice watching the GPS scope doing it's alignment dance though

It's slightly different to get to them, press the deep sky button and select the catalogue you need but it doesn't seem more difficult.
I find that having an identify button is better than having every catalogue on a dedicated button.
I've been using it for a bit and it seems a little different, but no more difficult to use.

Have you tried using NexRemote from you computer to see if it can properly detect the hand controller and/or control your telescope?

I do not have the "Plus" series HC so I am going with what the Offical Celestron HC Plus manual said, which is:
no mention of the IC or other catalogs. Having a "select NGC" catalog and not the complete catalog is less functional.
The Deep Sky catalog displays a list of all of the best Galaxies, Nebulae and Clusters, as well as the complete Messier and select NGC objects.
For me it is simpler & faster to have dedicated buttons for the most often used catalogs. Press the catalog button, enter the numeric ID and press enter your off and running. The way the HC Plus does it is OK, you achieve the same end product, it's just not as transparent as the old way.
