The HEQ5 pro doesn't have encoders so even though you are polar aligned you still need to set up the parameters each time you turn the mount on. The latitude and longitudes are stored (unless you travel to a different location) so you need to setup the time and date and then do a star alignment so the computer data base knows the starting reference points to slew to the target.
