hi all

Im getting a really weird behavior from my ETX-90EC.

After I align it successfully, I can tell autostar to go to the moon. Works great (well, almost). But once at the moon, no matter what planet I choose for it to go to (Mars, Venus, Pluto etc.), it doenst move at all and starts slewing to get to that star. However, I said GOTO vega and it moved and pointed upwards (which is correct I believe).

but why does it think all the planets are like right next to the moon? anyone seen this before?

thanks

Moazzam
