Hello members, My name is Graham and I am from Worthing in the UK,
I am on my second LS8 , my first packed up after 2 months use , It would not auto align and the camera could not find ANY control stars. This telescope was replaced by local importer under warranty. My second telescope, although it goes through the Auto Align procedure and gives me message Good Alignment, fails to show the target in the wide angle EP supplied nor in fact in my 32mm EP, When I use to GOTO command for finding any object , even bright objects like Jupiter, it is never in the field of view of the EP.
When I set up the telescope, I ensure that the tripod is EXACTLY level, and always set it up in the same position, ( I have 3 points set out on solid bricks for the tripod legs) I have tried using 2 star align and again get the good alignment message but GOTO is again way off,
Please can anyone give me some suggestions to correct this
I do have a Skywatcher EQpro mount for my refractor telescope and this always puts the subject in the field of view of a 25mm EP
