Quote:On your second session, you're doing a warm restart, and not a warm start or cold start, right? Only a warm restart leaves the model intact.
Quote:I know you had Gemini before, so I'm sure you know the alignment routine. Did you really do a 40 star alignment? I usually do 3 on the west side of the meridian then do maybe 6 on the east side (the east side is where 90% of my work takes place). Gotos are very accurate.Now there's the one thing I really don't like about Gemini; it has a very limited bright star catalog unlike the ole' CGE. David
Quote:hi bobby - after you have ruled out the battery, replace the 15 pin cord to the handpaddle, i know it is odd advice but this was my issue and somehow there was a short on startup losing my data every time. 10$ part or maybe you can build one.great set up by the way. i saw the pics the other day.david
IF YOU COULD SEE FROM WHENCE YOU CAME YOU WOULD KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING TOO.
Quote:How about the battery holder, did you check the two small tabs that make the contact? Have you tested at the battery holder to see if the 3v is present, not just the battery but at the holder itself?Blueman
