SynScan controller - star alignment not working correctly

Recommended Posts

I’m having trouble with my SynScan sending my star discovery mount in the wrong direction. 

I have set the correct time/date, coordinates, timezone ect. 

When trying to align the second star - it is slewing west rather than east. 

Any ideas how this can be resolved?

Hello, and welcome to SGL.

Are you trying a "brightest star" alignment, where you point to the first star yourself, or a "North level", where the mount slews to the first star?

Hello and welcome to the site.  

Does it go to the correct position when you park scope at home position? If not, power off, release the clutches and manually park the scope at the home position then start again. Hope it helps. 

Ooops sorry, just read your post again and noted it's a star discovery mount, so no idea if the above will help. All the best.
