Look on your power box for a switch that will have a N on one side and an S on the other ...you just select which hemisphere you want.

What is the December Solstice?


Winter solstice is an Astronomical phenomenon which marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. Winter solstice occurs for the Northern Hemisphere in December and for the Southern Hemisphere in June

The axial tilt of Earth and gyroscopic events of the planet's daily rotation keep the axis of rotation pointed at the same point in the sky. As the Earth follows its orbit around the Sun, the same hemisphere that faced away from the Sun, experiencing winter, will, in half a year, face towards the Sun and experience summer. Since the two hemispheres face opposite directions along the planetary pole, as one polar hemisphere experiences winter, the other experiences summer.

How can i get my garmin nuvi 1300 to pick up satellites?


Hello,

GPS satellite reception is best achieved when the unit is outdoors and has a good clear view of an unobstructed sky. The majority of the GPS satellites orbits are around the equator so if you are in the northern hemisphere, the best reception would be achieved with a clear southern sky.

How do i insert a negative (-) deg co-ordinate into my nuvi 200


Positive Lat Lon coordinates are for the eastern and northern hemispheres respectively. If you have a negative coordinate, they indicate a location in the western or southern hemisphere.

To enter a Latitude coordinate of, for example, -31 degrees, you would enter 31 degrees, but specify S (for South) rather than N (for North)

Negative Lon coordinates would use W (for West) instead of E (for East)

Be sure that the telescope is configured for EQ SOUTH mode to tell it is in the southern hemisphere. Once a star alignment is completed NEVER manually move the telescope. Use only the control panel to slew. Everytime the telescope is move by hand, the motors do not know it has been done, and assume it is still pointing at the old direction. Check the manual for setup.
