Good tip and yes I have found T-point models fussy and prone to failure. I had it working with Marcus Davies help with the Sky 6 and PME. There it just required a larger databasae of stars (speaking of which I asked for and received from the US Navy astronomy department a free star database they will give out if you ask).

With PMX and Sky X there were a number of things I had to be careful of. In the end I am not sure which of the many things I adjusted made it go but it did.

But syncing first makes a lot of sense and I'll make sure I do that next time.

It makes me reluctant to delete the existing model and create a new one as I am not confident it will just work but I could probably get it going but how long would that take away from limited imaging time?

There's a lot to be said for a bullet proof polar scope!

Greg.
