Hi there, So I got a Skywatcher Skyhawk Bk1145 AZ Syn Scan GOTO telescope a few years back as a birthday present. I decided to get it out again and after setting it up with perfect sky’s, during alignment the scope keeps slewing vertically upwards or downwards until it physically cant any longer and it won’t align no matter what I try. I have tried a constant power supply, reassembling the mount and a bunch of other things. I have triple checked I’ve been entering the correct information but no matter what I try the scope will always skew vertically until it physically can’t any longer due to it pressing against the mount. Has anyone had problems like this and know what to do about them?? Thanks in advance, Ryan
Hi all, looking for some help please! I have a wedge for my 8SE and when using EQ North to align it, it says it is slewing to Vega but ends up all the way over at Polaris!? Any ideas? Thanks in advance! I have updated the firmware, Mount is pointing at north, have inputted my latitude and longitude, I have tried picking the nearest city too and nothing seems to work!
Hello , I am physics student in Turkey . I have used telescopes but they were manual mount because of that I do not have any experiences with GO TO mounts . I upload photos and I pressed alignment button before finding 3 or 2 stars . Still ı did not find any stars from catalog . I really watched many videos but I did not do it well my process still not continue . 12 photos I upload , first photo teleskop , last photo is the my last step , which button should I have press?
