I have SNP plus running on windows 7, talking to my Celestron 9.25 on a CGEM mount. All functions work great. I typically align the scope then connect to SNP and the cross hairs mark shows on SNP exactly where the scope is pointed.
I can slew to any object on SNP and have the scope follow. If I do a sync on SNP to a bright star near my faint fuzzy, SNP will point the telescope to within 5-10 arc min of the object I slew to.....Except in the vicinity of Orion's Belt.
I can slew to Betelgeuse and Rigel, but not to any star near M42 or the Belt. When I manually move to a belt star and say sync, the cross hairs default back to the galactic north pole. I have to start my alignment all over again. When I rt mouse click on a belt star and say slew to, the telescope goes to galactic north pole.
This was the case with SNP, SNP plus, windows Xp and windows 7 and using an old Celestron Advanced mount and a CGEM. It only happens near Orion's Belt, nowhere else in the sky. Any suggestions?
