I am posting this in hopes someone will know what I am talking about. Are there any Gemini users in the house?
I just upgraded my G11 to Gemini and took it out to field test at a star party. Someone is saying, "Field test at a star party, in the dark?" Yes I did, or tried to do.
I started the uploading of GPS and mount type and arrived at "Telescope Alignment". When I pick a bright star and select, the hand display reads "Motor Stalled: D ". That is as far as I could get and my Gemini field test was a bust.
I brought the mount home, and the next day I removed the motors and connected the DEC/RA wires, powered up with a Pyramid power supply, recommended my Losmandy, and received the same fault code.
I interchanged DEC/RA wires, then switched motors, then wires and motors. I received the same fault each time.
I powered up with no wires attached and I get "Motor Stalled: RA Lags".
Is there anyone who can help me with this?

Quote:Mark:Contact Scott Losmandy immediately. He should be able to walk you through and diagnose this problem.
