Most people use Sync incorrectly. Sync is used only on the initial setup. If you use your Keypad to “GOTO” a double star in the computer and it’s not in the center of the FOV in your eyepiece and you want to correct for an alignment error you center the double and hit Recal not Sync.

Hi.  Just wondering if anyone has had problems before with sync not working.  My mount wasn't lost.  It just wouldn't register the sync.  It would beep and show that it was good, but it never took.  I just ordered a new control box.  YAY.  It's on the way.  Now I'm wondering if there's an issue with my keypad.

Thanks in advance.
