Re: initialization of Mach2

There is no mechanical initialization required. No unparking from any parks required - the mount is ready to roll the moment you apply power. Once you connect the mount to your planetarium app using the ASCOM driver, all you need to do is slew to a star or deep sky object. The mount does the rest.

Subject: [ap-gto] initialization of Mach2

I have finally received my new Mach2GTO. I read both instruction manuals, have everything installed, balanced and polar aligned. I am ready to power up for the first time.   I am unsure about where the mount should be pointed for the first initialization.
