Hi, I bought a older Etx 125 from a local guy here about 3 weeks ago, I have had a few broblems with it but they were easy enough to fix.. I updated the autostar 2 weeks ago to the latest version and am just now looking for the deep stuff :) I had only looked at Mars and the moon for the past weeks..... my problem is the scope never ever puts the intended object in the FOV of the scope ot the finder EXCEPT for the Andromeda galaxy and Neptune..... any other ones are off by quite a bit... So I put the off objects into the FOV then I re-sync for tracking...all is well....then off to m-31 again..bam! it's in the FOV....then off to Polaris....off...Vega....off...back to M-31 or Neptune....Right in the FOV. Any ideas? Thanks Jeff.
