When using the Argo Navis to initially align my dobsonian mounted telescope, after MODE FIX ALT REF is completed and I enter MODE ALIGN STAR, the display shows ALIGN ACHERNAR. Spinning the dial does not change the alignment star. The display stays the same. Exiting out to other menus, the dial seems to scroll through the menus just fine, just seems to happen during MODE ALIGN STAR. This is keeping me from getting aligned. Any ideas what may be happening? It has always worked in the past.

Hi Thad,

Thanks for the post.

Sounds like you are in the MODE ALIGN menu rather than MODE ALIGN STAR.

The MODE ALIGN STAR provides a convenient list of bright stars that you can scroll through with the dial.

The MODE ALIGN menu presents the last object you accessed either through MODE CATALOG, MODE IDENTIFY or MODE TOUR and like MODE ALIGN STAR, defaults to ACHERNAR (the
first bright star alphabetically in the catalog) when you power it on.

So if I were a betting man, odds are you might have been having a little 'finger problem'. smilie
