Still waiting for my RMA from Celestron, but tonight I was able to get some accurate gotos by i increasing my Alt backlash setting to 85% and going to a down and right approach. Both my goto approaches are positive. Before using these setting all my gotos were below the targets. My scope has about 3/8" play up and down in the tube. You can see the drive gear moving back and forth when rocking the tube up and down.

Has anyone else had this problem with a new scope.  

Thanks, Bill
