Yes, I'll suggest joining the LX200GPS group on Yahoo!. But also, be sure you've turned your mirror-shift-lock knob all the way clockwise. Otherwise it prevents you from focusing. Then, when you're close to focus, you can tighten it again (though you don't have to), and do the fine focusing with the electrical focuser.
