Just wanted to share - we at long last had a wonderful viewing session - slightly clouded, VERY humid (so I bought a nice dew shield an hour ago for next time) and the GOTO mount functioned perfectly.
Solar system align? - NO issues - GOTO Jupiter and Saturn? Easy-Peasey. GOTO named stars? You betcha. Sky Tour working? Yes indeed!
It's amazing how IF you finally tell the mount that it is in Glenview, IL and NOT in N/W China? Alignments and GOTOs work a treat. Rather a big difference putting in the correct WEST Longitude rather than MY many previous attempts to align when I was wrongly telling it EAST. LOL
When I say it was humid this evening, I mean the scope was literally 'damp' and needless to say the front lens looked like a shower door by the time we brought everything back indoors at about 9:30pm. The new 'store-bought' dew shield will arrive early next week to help remedy the issue.
But a really gratifying exploration of the heavens was had by all. Nice to achieve tracking as intended by the telescope makers. Life is good.
