“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe

Quote:Thanks Guys,I was out there tonight and the reset of the hand pad made a big difference. The gotos were good, but after about 10 gotos, they were a bit off. Might be that I need to reset the backlash values. But the motors sound kind of funny like they keep revving up and down during slews. I probably need to go through it and do some adjustments. It was a gift to the school and we really haven't used it too much. But bottom line, it seems to be working.Thanks again,Dave
