I recently acquired an AVX and I'm having a little issue getting the alignment right. After doing the 2 star alignment I then proceed to the 4 calibration stars. The alignment does not improve as I go through the calibration stars. The alignment stars will be in the FOV of the 50 mm finderscope as I go through the alignment process, but does not put the alignment star closer to the finder scope crosshairs as I go through the calibration stars. I've owned an AVX years ago and I remember after a calibration star or two that my old mount would center the stars perfectly in the finder and EP. I'm currently using a C8 with the mount. I have done the following to the mount to find the issues.
Checked the time, date, lat/long, time zone and daylight savings time.
Factory reset the mount
Check that all clutches are tight
Performed the ASPA then turned the mount off and performed a new alignment routine
Made sure the saddle was tight ( ADM DV saddle is installed on mount). I also double checked that the Dec clutch was not hitting the motor cover.
I'm using a 9mm crosshair EP.
The only thing I've haven't tried is installing the latest firmware. I'm currently using firmware version 5.29.7137
I'm also using the factory DC power plug with a 5v DC inverter plugged into an extension cord. I do have a splitter powering the mount and a dew heater. I'm going to just power the mount with the power inverter to double check power issue, but the mount does seem to have good power.
Any help would be awesome. Thanks.
