I was having major issues with alignment not working correctly. I decided to factory reset. No when the scope picks stars to align to, they are always at the horizon. To low to see. Any help really quick would be great. I'm at A Star party.

Check to see if you long and lat settings are correct and time is correct.Are you using the GPS and is it getting the info or are you manually setting time and location???Also make sure you train and calibrate drives.This is a must for point accuracy.

I did the train drives.  After alignment I did the two star set up and when I would goto an abject the scope would be about half the distance is should be to the object.

Thats strange especially when I do a goto and the object is always on my imaging chip.
