Celestron StarSeeker 80mm

Update
I have only had a couple of clear nights to use the “The Little Dude”
but they were very enjoyable.

The Celestron Sky Align is very simple and fast to use.
I just pointed at 3 different stars and it came back with
MATCH CONFIRMED.
You don’t have to know the name of the star.
You don’t have to put it at a HOME postion.
You don’t have to point it North.

Just level it and pick out 3 stars and you are set!
What a delight to use.

    I am hoping you can provide some suggestions to me. I purchased a Starseeker 100mm refractor from Orion.

    I am hoping you can provide some suggestions to me. I purchased a Starseeker 100mm refractor from Orion. I have been unable to get the thing to GoTo any selected object. I rarely get a Successful Alignment, and when I do, the GoTo always misses the selected object by 10’s of degrees. The other night I used SkyAlign and when dome, asked it to provide me the names of the stars I selected. Not one of them matched the stars I had chosen. I know my stars, I have checked several times the date, time lat/log, time zone, etc. so these are correct. Teck support was of limited help, but they did trade out the handcontroller and checked the mount for me. It is obvious I am doing something fundamentally wrong but have no idea what. I level the scope and, as I said, recheck all information I enter to the computer. Have you any suggestions?
