I bought one of these a few months ago and am just now getting to know it better. When I turn the mount on it immediately calibrates itself. Since it's daylight I can't tell how precise it is but everything seems to be OK with that.
What's very odd is that it immediately wants to align to the sun. This is obviously a bad idea. It would disastrous during the day and pointless at night. Is there any way to alter this start up behavior. What I did was to kill the alignment and then go in and do a new alignment using the planets (just a rough test) as I know where they are right now. Is this OK?
If anyone has any good tricks for leveling this mount, please let me know. Today on level ground it took maybe 5 minutes but having tested it in a few different locations, I find that it can take me a while as I don't have an optimal workflow or a good trick. Any help appreciated.
