Good morning everybody,

I had to change to another laptop and that meant downloading and installing everything over again. I’m up to PHD2 now and last night I tried to do the calibration thing. I did all this once before but I can’t recall how I slewed to +20 or -20 Dec. I tried Menu/Goto Ra Dec and change Dec setting to -/+ 20 ( I tried both) but the telescope goes wacko  and points downward to Australia! 
 

Help!!!!

Dano

This is the area around the celestial equator. Altair is in this range or slew to jupiter, Saturn, or mars. This will put you in this range.
