Quote:Chris, you were exactly right!After verifying that indeed the EC was not tracking, I swapped it out for my Autostar. Scope tracked once told it to slew to an object.The only explanation I can come up with is along these lines: The LXD-75 won't track unless it is either aligned or slewed to an object, then it tracks. For reason, when I went from my Autostar to my EC originally, the scope stayed in this tracking mode (maybe some form of ad-hoc sleep or park?) and all worked well. However, something triggered that to go off so I needed to use the Autostar to get it tracking again.In any case, I now have a wonderfully tracking mount that I will use tonight. And I don't have to worry about buying a new mount. I'll just use the Autostar from now on.
