I do need to have it train its drives every now and then, like every six months or so, to keep the normal slewing feature working well. The drive training lets the scope know what changes have taken place in gear backlash or "slop." A certain amount of give is necessary for the gears to move at all. This will change slightly as gears wear in. With the very close tolerances in telescope movement in order to keep alignment good, the amount of backlash is important.

Thank you for addressing both topics in the 2 posts. It was very helpful. Granted I do break out in a cold sweat with all the stories I've heard on this software, hopefully it won't repeat.
