I seem to have got my 1200 into an odd state.�� I installed ASCOM 2 about 3 months ago and use Cartes du Ciel to point the scope, etc.�� I end a session by going to Park 1 before power off.�� I have to manually move the scope slightly after power is off to be comfortable with the roof closing clearance.

For start up, I manually level the mount/scope after opening the roof.�� I power up with the handset and resume from Park 1, goto a suitable star and do a ReCal.�� I then connect the computer via ASCOM and connect tracking also.�� The mount will move to any CdC selected object, so all is golden.�� However, when I use the handset, if I select a star the goto works OK, but if I select a Messier object to goto with the handset, it reports the object is below the horizon.�� If I go back to the computer, select the same M object, it goes where it is told.

Any clue ??

Thx,

You may have lost your keypad database due to a dead memory battery. You may need to install a new battery and download the database back into your keypad. Can be done easily by following instructions on our website. George at AP can help you if you need.��Rolando (presently on vacation in Hawaii)����-----Original Message-----
