EQ5 goto Mount in non goto mode

Post by gfletcher »

Hi guys

If I wanted to skip all the initial setups on the handset that you are required to do when you first power up the mount and just use in non goto mode , what is the procedure to do that ?

Don't understand the question, surely all you do is mount the scope, and use the direction control on the handset to control the movement, still needs polar aligning though to follow easier
