question regarding Precise Goto feature new
      #6114219 - 10/02/13 10:25 PM

After I use the Precise Goto feature to locate an object, the only way for me to go to another object is to hit the Undo button and repeat the Precise Goto process. None of the other control buttons will work without doing so. Is that normal?

Thanks Jeff. At least I know I wasn't doing something wrong.

I used to use normal goto alignment when I started ap and my targets will be way off the center. As long as my initial alignment is as accurate as I could get it to, Precise goto targets are centered.

I've always seen this feature, but never used it. Any idea what the difference is between this and normal goto? I mean, why would they have an imprecise goto? Just wondering.

Never mind, Just read about it in the manual, its just a way of locally syncing the scope before a goto. This makes sense that it would want you to do the sync every time.
