I have lately bought mySky and found that it is not precise. When I try to locate an object in the sky (like the moon, which is obvious regarding its position) and I press 'go to', I noticed that the location is far from exact. Can some one help me with this problem. thankyou ::)

I am also a "new" mysky user and I am having the same problem. I have tried various combination of the options available such as dimming the signts, letting them flash, etc, but I still am not able to get the proper, known object 100% of the time. The instructions say to practice, but perhaps the learning curve is quite shallow. Anyone have any ideas on how to raise the accuracy?

I've found that if you sweep the MySky slowly, and sight on the target object for a few seconds before hitting the trigger it will be much more accurate. Same holds true for doing a Go-To. Try slowing the sweep down to let the internal sensors catch up and I think you'll see a difference.

My first mySky nailed everything I pointed it at and was a joy to use. ;) (Until it broke.)

I'm now on my third and it is off several degrees to the right. :'(
