Cord wrap?
      #5733311 - 03/15/13 12:11 AM

I seem to have lost my cord wrap feature. Do you have to have an alignment before you can set it! I thought that if I slewed to a spot opposite of where I do not want the scope to slew and then press ENTER, then the scope should never cross that point. Am I doing something wrong. Thanks.
Jim

Have you changed the "Slew Limits" lately?

Actually, YES. My computer died and I had to reinstall Nexremote and had to re-enter everything. Why would slew limits affect the cordwrap?

If you have reinstalled Nexremote, you need to turn cordwrap ON again. It is OFF by Default. Not sure if Slew Limits could affect it or not, it was just a guess.
