The recording I wanted to make the last few days before, but the battery of the keypad of the mount was at the end.
With a simple battery change is not enough. The battery must be soldered and then the firmware has only once to be reinstalled.
Plug & Play in Astro area simply does not exist.
Now I'll try in the next few days still to collect some light.
