I have a DS80 with the Meade 492 dual motors and a 497 handbox. The handbox has been updated to 43G of the firmware using StarPatch.
I level the tube and point the DS80 tube to magnetic north. I power up and go through the typical setup steps (date, time, location...). I select Two Star Align and select Antares for my first star (since right now it is right in the middle of my Southern sky). The motors start slewing like they are swinging toward Antares. Then, the tube starts slewing to vertical and jams against the tripod. It is pointed no where near Antares.
I did a Reset and went through the setup steps again. Same issue.
I tried a Meade Audiostar that I use on my ETX125. Same issue.
The motors are plugged into the correct jacks.
Am I doing something wrong in physically setting up the DS80? Like, does the tripod mount have to be configured a certain way?
Any other suggestions? I recently acquired the DS80 in an estate sale for real cheap and no one knew anything about its condition.
