I have a CGEM DX mount and last night I was not able to get an alignment. The mount has been working fine up to now. The alignment stars which came up seem to be from the southern hemisphere. I have rechecked my mount settings and done a factory reset. I have had this problem before and a factory reset solved the problem. I suspect software problems. Is anyone else having this problem?

Hi Peter,

Most celestron mounts flake out now and then, factory reset seems to be the best first round easy solution.
