M42 – Orion Nebula

Been waiting since I took up this hobby to image this. The Orion Nebula. Not taken from the garden this time, but the drive! Sat in the cold for over 4 hours waiting for Orion to be in the right position. It was worth the wait.

V5 synscan hand controller issue

I was setting up for a clear night today and came across this issue with my hand controller. This is the first time it’s done this. All my setup is exactly the same with power coming from mains. I’ve read something about low voltage or current, but it worked perfectly before with the same cable! I tried connecting it to my other mount with another cable and the same issue occurred. This has led me to believe my hand controller has been damaged in some way? Has anyone experienced this before?
