There appears to be a bug in the routine to allow me to enter my telescope skewing limits.  The ENTER key does not store the value for upper limit and move to the next prompt.  Try it yourselves and see if you have the same issue.  

 

In the settings under SETUP\ELEVATION LIMITS 

 

I press ENTER to ENABLE

 

The handset then prompts for the UPPER limit.

 

I enter + or - 090.00 degrees and press ENTER and it wraps around DOES NOT ACCEPT ENTER pressed and I can never get to the entry for for the LOWER limit.  

 

The rest of the menus accept my entry normally and the handset is new.  The whole thing is new in fact.  I just upgraded to the latest skywatcher version of the handset to see if it is fixed but to no avail.

 

Any help is much appreciated.

I guess it depends on your location:
