As a tip, DO NOT SYNC when you’re pointed very near the pole or at CWD position…bad things happen.
I have a Gemini 1 on my G11. Here is my startup procedure:
- Cold start in CWD
- Use SLEW and CENTER on targets in SGP (slew will always happen first)
- Disable the option for “Sync performs Additional Align”
As long as the Gemini has an accurate Location and Time you’ll be all set. Easy Peasy.
Also I haven’t had my hand controller connected to my G11 in about 4 years (about the only reason I haven’t updated to the Gemini 2!)
