Question about Celestron Ultima 2000 -- 8 Telescope
After aligning, any goto slew will take the scope to point to exactly the opposite direction. i could look down the optical tube through the eyepiece as a microscope i suppose. not surprisingly, it can't track either (i could live without goto).
i've tried dozens of times, all kinds of combinations including power cycling, removing/replacing the batteries, etc.
i do know how to align it - i've done it many times before. the only unusual thing is that this started to happen after i mistakingly left the tracking one night and the batteries ran out. ever since then, it points backwards.
anyone seen this before? any ideas?
If you can RESET the hand controller do it-- then re-enter TIME, DATE, and SITE. Make sure you are in ALT AZ Mode and NOT Polar Mode if you do not have a wedge.
This is probably the issue-- you are in POLAR MODE by mistake.
