I'm part of the galactic course and it has set me up great. All the gear is now in and I've gotten some decent results so far but there is one thing that has been plaguing me so far.
I connect my ASIAir Pro directly to my EQ6-R Pro. Polar alignment goes by fine and I can easily find objects in the western sky. For instance, currently around 9pm, M81 and M82 and M104 no problem. But as soon as I try to find something in the Eastern sky like M101 or arcturus it seems the mount TRIES to find it, but it slews in a way that forces me to stop so my camera does not hit my tripod when if it where to tilt in the RA axis the opposite way would be a MUCH better position for the telescope. Is there a way to tell the ASIAir and EQ6-R to favor that side instead? Also today when I would try to go to M101 (around 9pm again) it would sometimes even just point at the ground. I've used it 5-6 times so far and for the most part is pretty accurate. This is the first time I've had this much trouble with it.
