I recently purchased an Ioptron HEM44. I finally got some clear weather and was able to give it a test run..
I performed an accurate polar alignement. This is when I noticed the HEM44 does not have any 1,2 or 3 star alignment procedure in the HC menu.
I made sure the date, time and locations were accurate, I used Ioptron Commander to get this from my computer.
But when I select a star, planet or the moon. Its pointing accuracy is way, way off..as in different time of year off. Not ever close.
I checked the date, coordinates and the UTC, I am in the Pacific NW so it is -480 according to the user manual.
Has this happened to anyones else?
I've checked the date and time, that doesn't seem to be the problems.
I've attached a shot of the HC display. -480 should be the UTC for the NW.
