Any idea what the problem could be? Is there an internal battery for the controller? I updated to the latest software version a couple of months ago and had no problems.

I only use duracells in mine cause the rest wont last at all
Make sure your Batterys are good
Check them with a volt meter to be sure
Im more than sure its just a battery issue

I notice now that I updated the software I'm using the go-to and tracking more and the batteries are not lasting as long as they used to. It may be time to invest in a portable power source. Problem is I don't know what I need or how to hook it to the scope. Any suggestions?

Recharable batterys are no good for these scopes as they are only 1.2 volts per battery and not 1.5 volts
You can get a 12 volt cord for it to operate off of a cigarette lighter
or if you have access to 120 volt you can get the power supply
You can order them from either place and im sure they will have either in stock
I hpe this helps

Thanks for your help. I think both of those would work for me. One for the backyard and one for when I drive somewhere.
