Re: Mach1 Unable to Find Home Position Suddenly

Thanks Ray, this started before Saturday and I don't have a keypad. Just to confirm; what's the correct process to
manually move the axes to correct park positions?
Okay, a couple other possibilities are:

1) The clutches slipped. Check the clutches to be sure they are tight.
2) The mount was recalibrated on a wrong star/object.

One way to recover is to park to Park 3 and manually adjust the mount position to the correct Park 3 position. Later, plate solve + RCAL somewhere near the zenith.
