Shortly after making this post, I found many of the answers to my questions. Pages I hadn't seen before, whole sites that were previously not there.

The only remaining questions are how to enter the "code" as well as how to upgrade the firmware and is it worth it?

For those that wanted the answers to the questions I asked prviously:

Setup for positioning the tube in the sleve:

Leveling and traking:
Still trying to get it to track properly between Solar, Lunar and Sidereal, but I found that when I tell it to look at a particular object the scope slews around quickly then slows down to get into final position. So it may seem to stop off center from the object you are looking for, but it will make it there within a minute. Still, it doesn't alway hit dead on when it's done, but it's close enough that I can easily realign it to the star/planet and it stays good for a bit longer.

Well, hope this helps someone out there in some little way.
