I wanted to bump this thread because I am using this scope again. Below is the OP, and some clarifications, as well as answers to questions in the thread:
I have a LX 90 GPS. I recently calibrated the motors and trained the drives, but it has not helped me with this problem:
During Goto, once the scope decelerates from fast-slew, it takes roughly 70 second to find the object and beep.
Is this normal? Is that just how long it takes, or is there something wrong?
To Clarify: the scope races, fast and loud, to within a degree or two of the object... after that, it takes about 70 seconds to finally land on the object and beep. During that time, there seems to be a combination of slight movements (noticeable only in the eyepiece) and long pauses, an a final move, before it finally locks on.
Quiet Slew is off
High Precision is off
Cord Wrap is off
50ft Extension cord to the transformer... have not tested the voltage, but it seems that voltage would be much less of an issue during the slower movements, right?
Firmware was last updated in Oct. 2019.
Accuracy is pretty good! Just takes a while. Maybe this is normal, but it seems odd.
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks,
