Hi Folks ... recently my DDM60Pro has failed to find the Homefind ref marks when asked to do so.
I first set up my mount in the summer and everything worked perfectly but recently it starts to look for the RA reference mark and they says that it has failed and goes no further. It doesn't do this every time I restart Autoslew ... but it does it occasionally and seems to happen more frequently nowadays.
However, if I ask Autoslew to try again, without first doing a full re-start, I get a message to tell me to move the scope slowly over the RA ref mark without the motor switched on ... this works! I hear a "ping" and the Autoslew asks me to slowly move the scope over the Dec ref mark ... which also works :-)))
The AutoSlew screen tells me that I have found the RA and Dec marks. Everything is then fine ....
Why is this happening???? Why am I getting this intermittent problem when I start up my mount?
What can I do to get things back to normal?
