Re: GOTO issue with Mach1GTO
Better to set the hand controller startup Auto-Connect mode to YES instead of NO or EXT. Then simply do a GOTO to a known star and then a 9=Re-Calibrate, which will be a function you will see when you press the [RA/DEC/REV] button. In fact if the mount has not been disturbed since it was last used then the 9=Re-Calibrate probably won't be needed.
AP mounts don't need star alignment every time they are turned on. They remember where they last were when power was cut.

No, Have Polaris in my sights.
Frankly, I am really lost now. I am balanced and leveled and coordinates and date and time are all entered as location 1. I did a rough polar align followed by the RAPAS. Assuming the RAPAS is accurate, what do you do next? The keypad gives you the choices: 1)Star Sync 2) Polar Alignment 3) Resume last position 4)new setup. I thought was Star Sync based on the manual.
