Hooray! got problem fixed; scope no longer points in wrong direction; it was the equatorial mount that changed everything.
If you get an equatorial mount you MUST tell scope you want a polar alignment; the manual seems to imply a choice, but you can not choose "auto align".
We're using the scope without the mount for now and choosing auto align until we know the scope and sky better.
Good luck with your GPS scopes!
