  2. Frustration to Elation

    That was a great report and very true of what you usually see through a telescope, my wife can never understand on what that grey little cloud is.....But to us just seeing and thinking on what we are seeing makes it all worth the effort. Des

  13. Hi, just to put my oar in....I`ve got an AVX mount and starsense , and never get more than a 100 stars on each alignment.All handsets start in America so you have toggle to international then country, nearest city. Make sure you have the RTC clock on and put in your long/latt. Also what some people forget to do is make sure that the mount is level starsense will not work otherwise. Des
