We may be zeroing in on it, and I think I understand what you are saying. I
have my mount repaired now (my powered USB hub died), and tomorrow if it
stops raining long enough I will get the mount connected and follow up on
your comments. So, stay tuned.
‘Home’ is just GT-5 talk for ‘Park’, as far as I can tell. The 'Home’
command on the mount hand controller just slews the mount to a
pre-determined position, in my case, Polaris. I polar aligned my mount and
have ‘glued’ the tripod feet to my concrete patio. I run a pair of USB
extenders into the house and a laptop running SGP and PHD2. I cover the
mount and scope with a waterproof scooter cover and just leave it out in
the weather (at least April through October).
Thanks for your help.
