Quote:I agree the cord is way way too short. Matter of fact, do you know how can we extend it? If I plug in a traditional telephone extension (female/female), what kind of cable do I need, is it a reversed or the same as the DEC type cable that is straight through for the handcontroller?Al

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:- and for completely new users - particularly those new to the sky and using smaller scopes with this same hc - it will be a more friendly and understandable interface without scary and confusing jargon up front. I think a sizeable number of new users would not know what ngc means - and those who do would figure out it is under Deep Sky. Same for M.Frank
Quote:Yes - but since it remembers what you last did - if you do DeepSky you would scroll to NGC and then enter the NGC Number. Later, when you press DeepSky it is already pointing at NGC - so at that point it has only added one button press.

Quote:If it works like the list button on the old HC (which I think it does), then it makes no difference to me since the most frequently accessed catalog by all us is named stars accessible only through the list button. No big deal.
