Re: Mach2 - Pollux not in correct position

Let me rephrase that.

Is anything else connected to the mount besides the AP hand controller?

The mount is never lost. What are you using to command the mount? That is where the problem is.

I'm using my Mach2 with the AP keypad. It works perfectly in every way and goto's are spot on. 

When I command it to go to the star Pollux, it slews to a position approximately 90 degrees to the East of where it should be.

All other objects are spot on so far.

Has anybody else encountered this with the Mach2?
