So I picked up the used telescope yesterday (from the original buyer), having issues with getting it aligned. Every time I restart it, it requires an alignment, location information, the time defaults to 8:00 p.m. (which leads me to believe it is not storing any location data) and the tracking is off in where it believes objects are in the night sky.
The seller said he thought he purchased it in 2014, so in the research that I have done denotes that it likely did not come with an LNT, but it does have a mount for one on the left side of the scope (an LNT did not come with the scope). I have tried to determine the exact age of the scope, but Meade and their serial numbers are not very useful. The only other useful information I have regarding the age is the tube assembly is textured, not smooth like the older Meade scope I am upgrading from.
The GPS on the Audiostar controller comes up, says it is fixing to its location, but I have let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes and it never moves past message.
Any help or guidance would appreciated. Thanks,
