After weeks and weeks of struggling with my scope to align it and get it working, I've learned that part of my problem was my AutoStar II controller that was dieing a slow death. It gave its last breath yesterday, right after I spent an hour and a half doing the SmartMount process to align the scope. It's now in a cardboard box on its way back to Meade to be replaced. I'm writing to see if anyone has a spare they could lend me until the new one gets shipped back, or at least for a night so I can make sure nothing else is wrong with the scope. It would be greatly approeciated.
