1.-When you just press quickly the #9 button (RECALIBRATE), the
object starts moving slowly out of the field, it does not matter
you press it just once quickly or keep it pressed, the object
moving out of the field.

I have asked Marj to send you a new chip to be installed in your
servo box.
It sounds like there is a software problem in your chip.

2.-The PEC does not correct the periodic error, I trained it
times (Trained and checked, then train again and rechecked), it
less periodic error with the PEC OFF than with the PEC-PLAY.
I also rebalanced the OTA, it was ok, so that was not the problem
either, the GoTo function worked well, Venus was on the finder
at the center but not in the field of a 26mm Plossl that gives
with the 5 meter 10" Maksutov, probably the "recalibrate key"
the last object I viewed before parking the mount.I found Venus
around 12 O´Clock saturday and sunday too.
My handpad shows "VERSION-2.4", I do not know if I need some
or the new chip.
I would like your comments concerning issues #1 and #2.
Your keypad version is not at fault. Soon you will be able to
upload version
3 with some advanced features.

I want to thank you for your prompt answer and your support, I feel
relieved with your comments because I thought I was doing something
wrong, or that my alignment was off, even after 20 or more years
doing drift alignments, homemade mounts etc..., Roland you made me
I hope that Marjorie could send a new chip with instructions on how
to install it, via Federal Express or UPS, just tell me how much will
it be, so to send a check or a credit card number.
