What a lovely night it was! I think I am going to mount a big stone on the wall off my observatory so I can pound my head on it around 3 am....lol
I had to stop and think this through to get any resolution. I promised myself I was not going to bitch about a lack of documentation, since after complaining for three years, it has got me nowhere. At least Dr. Keller is starting to put some stuff out there.
I recently sent my mount in to ASA (my old mount without A. Encoders) and paid to upgrade. Basically I got a new mount back (with no updated information) with the absolute encoders installed and some minor mount changes. So now I am setting it up. Rather than give you the minutia, I'll give you the summary:
1. Autoslew still shows "all" the buttons, but several now do nothing when hit, including "Homefind".
2. My first slews were so far off, it was unbelievable. I have the GPS option installed and I had 10 satellites. So what was the problem? For some reason Autoslew did not take the GPS info and had some bizarre coordinates, Probably somewhere in Austria and I live in Florida. Once I corrected this issue my slews were close. Remember, I physically have changed my mount so I still need to do a Polar Alignment.
3. Once I resynced in the Sky, all my slews had the target star close to center on my camera.
Bernard was fairly accurate with his statement above.
