using the HC and the scope control programs. It's available through the menu on
You will probably find that the positions are different and that this accounts
for the differences you are seeing.
As for why they are different, that depends. What HC version are you using?

1. If the telescope lands on the target, but the cursor in the program is "off," just use the program's sync option (NOT sync on the HC).
2. If the HC puts objects in the field of the eyepiece, but a go-to from the software does not, the problem is a conflict between the data in the program and the data in the HC.
Usually Jnow vice J2000 is not a problem. I would only worry about that if I'd checked everything else. The current Celestron firmware calculates object positions for Jnow. Check to see what your program is doing (often there is a choice of Jnow or J2000 that you can exercise).
Much more likely is a conflict between the site data and the data in the HC. The time, lat, lon, time-zone, and DST offset in the HC and the program must agree.

I think its the latter problem. How do you get both the mount and the software to agree?
Very easy. You enter the same information in both. Be careful and check it carefully.
