Atlas PAS LED issue - help! new
      #5383566 - 08/23/12 09:27 PM

Hi all,

I finally got the Orion Atlas this week, and tried to use it last night - until the clouds rolled in.

From reading literature, Polar Alignment on these mounts are supposed to be fairly accurate. However when I tried to use the polar alignment scope, the entire field of view was just bright RED!!

I have been surfing the internet for a way to dim it and it appears there is a way to do it via hand controller - yet I cannot find it in the manual (both supplied and latest downloaded).

Could somebody tell me where this option lives on the menu tree?

Thanking in advance,
Paul

If I remember correctly go to Menu>Setup>Handset Setting>Polar LED and then you use the up and down arrows (direction arrows) to dim or brighten the LED. I typically set up at dusk and don't use it anymore.
