While this Super Polaris mount is actually probably older than the TV Renaissance 102 riding on it, the Gotonova goto kit I put on it about 10 years ago.
Last week, while in Utah imaging NEOWISE, I didn't need the goto. All I needed was the drive to be running to track the comet. So it was rather frustrating to have to do a star alignment (I only did the 1 star alignment), and then when my laptop battery needed charging and I started the van to keep it's battery from draining, the gotonova would reset whenever the voltage changed even a little. So there was a period of about an hour where I wasn't tracking the comet, just fiddling with my equipment. Once the laptop was charged enough to get me through about another hour of imaging (tethered to my Olympus OMD EM5ii camera), I shut the van down and unplugged the laptop charger from the inverter.
And then it occurred to me, "Hey, I could LIE to the gotonova!" What I did was select the one star alignment method, but instead of putting the scope in the park position and aligning on a star selected from the gotonova list, I unlocked the RA and DEC locks, and held the OTA steady while I told the gotonova that the scope was parked, and hit the "sync" button when it thought I'd aligned it on Mizar. Then, I locked everything and used the slew buttons to get back to the comet.
