Thanks Mike, I was thinking the same thing. It shouldn't take too much of "something" to push the balance further back. I just need to find something that won't interfere with going to the zenith. And there's not a heck of a lot of leverage with the OTA pushed fully forward and it's extra weight for the mount to handle that isn't "really" necessary if Celestron would address the problem.
"right after making the change the system does not implement the different GoTo Approach even for that session."... If I switch approach to negative while in CPWI the scope does do the down/right final approach for gotos. So maybe somethings changed in CPWI or?? Or maybe I'm not really understanding your comment.
I was planning on switching the approach to negative right after connecting to the mount/starsense/focuser with CPWI and then do the starsense autoalign and recalibrate the OTA to Starsense with a down/right approach for final centering of the calibration star. One thing I was wondering is if Starsense always does a up/right final approach or if it will honor the down/right if changed before it starts the alignment? If always up/right then no point in the down/right for star calibration and probably not a suitable alignment model for a down/right approach with a front heavy scope. Thoughts?
One other question (or comment?)… It appears the HC is the default (master?) location for settings and when CPWI or other scope apps connect through a USB they update their settings based on the info last changed/stored in the HC (absent any bugs around making and storing changes like in this topic). Is this correct and are there any important exceptions one should be aware of?
Btw... I really like your Nexstar gen. II book. It's been a great help and reference. I had it and read it before the scope arrived so that made things easier from the start. I just wish I could remember everything in it.
