Quote:Thanks Rod,I bought a CG-5 ASGT back in October 2008 but never really used it since then as it needed a second counterweight which I am getting only now.So in order not to put undue stress on the motor bearings I have never switched on the mount.So I would like to ask:- is my HC upgradeable to the 4.1* version? How do I check what version is currently on the mount?- when switching on the mount do you have to give it time/latitude/longitude data every time or does it have some sort of memory?- if I do not want to use GOTO features (ie. just want tracking for say a casual observation of the moon/planets), can I just switch on the mount and that's it? Obviously after it is aligned due north.- is there anywhere with a step-by-step guide online? I know there are many posts in here but most are quite complicated for one who has yet to switch on the mount for the first time.Many thanks!
