Question about Celestron NexStar 11 GPS (660 x 279mm) Telescope
Last week I was finally able to get my GPS to align and locate objects off the menu.I set it up last night and was stunned to find that regardless of what alignment mode I selected ,it would begin to slew altitude non stop .I started it with barrel completely down in several directions.It would slew altide non stop bottoming out the barrel and still keep running! I tuned it off and regardless of what I did or alignment mode selected ,it would slew altitude non stop. I diosconnected my CN16 gps unit and it still would not cease slewing until I tuned it off.I have a computerized hand control # 93962 for my Nexstar 8i. Can you solve this problem?
Kind of late with my answer...BUT if you pop off your GPS unit and then just tilt it up and down CAN YOU HEAR a ball bearing moving inside...???
YOU SHOULD....that is how the GPS actually finds the level position of the OTA....sounds like it is stuck..OR even worst that you have a CN-16 unit that was designed for a GEM mount which is not designed at all for leveling the OTA...
Next thing.. exactly what version is your hand controller...version 2.3 ????

Use the rewmote that came with the telescope and go into setup under telescope and push enter when it says calibrate motor
