Look like tonight might be good :) Enjoy your scope, you will be amazed at what you see. Just a few tips to help you with setting up.

Date format is MM/DD/YYYY

Time format is 24hr

Time Zone +0.00

DST = No

I use Lat - Long Finder: This page helps you find Latitude and Longitude to find my location. Just zoom in on the map and centre your location to the flashing pixel and the results will be shown underneath.

Enjoy

Brett :)

I'm not to sure if you can type it in, I've not tried. You can go to the utilities menu/show position and go from there using the direction keys.

Have you tried Stellarium its a free download and one of the best free planetarium programs IMHO it also has the capability of controlling your mount providing you have a serial port, if not you can get one of these Astronomiser - Automated Astronomy and AstroImaging Solutions which is what I use :)
