Good evening everyone, I'm a french astronomer and I had a problem with my RCX400, I believe it was the battery for the GPS but a priori no: here is:
I changed the battery inside the RCX, nothing better .. worse since tonight (but it used to sometimes) by setting everything manually(ie I do as if there is no GPS)
that is to say: I fill in the place (46.4°N 1.23 E) I save it in the racket, I modify the time , the date, GMT+1 , daylight saving (daylight daylight saving ) a oui, mount in equatorial table mode (polar)
Moreover I know that my equatorial table is well put in station .
In short all the parameters, I make an alignment on 2 stars and the ca goes completely wrong: I go to Arcturus manually, I synchronize .
I ask to go to Spica and the ... patatra la raquette me dit qu'elle n'est pas levée ...
I double-check all my parameters: RAS. I make an alignment via the racquet, I position on the polar, I synchronize , the racquet must go automatically on another star ..
It goes on Vega .. but not to the North East but due South!!!
I turn everything off, I raise again , and the racket erased the data (date and time:) it is on September 6, 2001 (the last time I turned it on it was on September 1 , it was 6 days ago that it made me - amazing right?
same time has been saved , but the last time , the time is reset at 2:06 am!! I do it regularly this week...
I opened the racket: no battery on the Autostar II. it must be fed directly via the mount (question how is the time and date saved? by the GPS battery?)
I ask for your opinions and your search on the Internet if there are any who have had these problems... me , I am dry ...
So in the best of cases if it comes from the racket and it is HS , in your opinion the Autostar II rackets for the LX200 are they compatible with the RCX?
thank you for helping me
