Quote:Jeez I don't know what the fuss is. I've been using a G11 with a G1 for a few years but are secretly hoping it'll die and I'll be definitely be replacing it with a G2. I'd kill for OEM LAN, USB and wireless capability.
Quote:It now works as advertised. The developer is great as he has added two features at my request and the 3rd one "electronically assisted mount balancing" is on it's way. There is only one minor bug I know off that is pending a fix. After synchronizing dec axis guiding starts running away out of control. There is an easy workaround till the bug is fixed. Move slightly north then south after performing sync. Other than that I dont know of any bugs.In short it works great.

Quote:The biggest problem I see with Gemini 2 is the lack of a manual. It is a wonderfully complete system and has more features than most of us will ever use. But it is tough to figure all those features out with no manual.

Quote:Hi Terry. No...how do you do that? I'll do it right away!
Quote:Hi Terry D. You stated your using fl up to 600mm. There's a big difference when your imaging DSO's at 3250mm fl. I need my goto's to be dead on. At up to 600mm is so wide field you might not even notice it being off a little but at 3250mm fl. it becomes a problem. I'm glad your Gemini 2 has no issues. Neilson
Quote: I can even sync. then slew away then tell it to go back to the star and it will always be off from center or to the edge.
