That is NOT an Atlas EQ-G as your question indicates -- this is an atlas eq-g-

This is a 60mm refractor style telescope imported from China. No one will have a manual for that scope. Try to locate a local Astronomy club and the members will help you assemble it.

Electronics - Atas EQ-G - connection is lost when guiding program begins calibration. Tracking and mount control lock up requiring restart of mount. Thanks


Have you upgraded the motor control firmware and the hand controller firmware to the latest version? If not see this web site which contains instructions for updating the firmware.

This could also be caused by a USB-Serial adapter cable. Try another brand. The one sold by www.scopestuff.com works --- along with a Keyspan brand Serial-USB adapter.

Atlas Goto kit


Did you call Orion customer service ??? I just do not believe they would discontinue this since they still sell the non goto mount, and the goto mount.

It is still listed here---

RA will not track on Orion Atlas mount


Are you sure it's not actually working (tracking)-- can you hear the motor running?

I would contact Orion and make sure you have a manual for the hand-controller-- it may have a setting that turns tracking on or off.
