I got a CG-5 today and I upgraded the hand control but it seems like I cannot get a successful two star or skyline alignment. also it seems to stop at a certain point when i use the right arrow button. I am not sure if it is a slew limitation issue or what.
:confused:

What's a "Skyline" alignment? Do you mean SkyAlign? If so, you've upgraded your HC with the wrong firmware. Must be the GEM version, which doesn't have SkyAlign...

Thanks it seems to have upgraded to the correct firmware now. I can no longer see the SkyAlign option any more and its 2 Star Align seems to start slewing on its own now. I cannot wait to test it out tonight.

Thanks for your response.
