I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.
Quote:It really sounds like a software bug. Did you use this function successfully in the past?-Rich
Quote:Mike,I won't be home until Friday, July 26th. IF haven't receive help from Meade or another member on the Forum, I'll try the same function. If I find the same condition as you have encountered, then it is likely a software bug. If sucessful, I do have another HC that we could talk about
Quote: At the time, Meade support told me they thought I was pressing Enter not Goto on the HC.

Quote:It's been 2 or 3 weeks since I used my LX80 but I mostly use the Deep Sky catalog when I do. It works fine. Good GoTos, especially, when in High Precision mode. However, there have been times when I mistakenly hit "Enter" and I would panic thinking something was wrong until I realized my error.
Quote: ENTER then GOTO all the time!
