Polarscope brightness adjustment on HEQ5 Pro and NEQ6

Postby Aardvark » Sun Oct 07, 2012 4:46 pm

There is a brightness setting in one of the handset menus. Open the 'Setup'' menu, then 'Handset Settings' (with the handset plugged into mount and all powered up) you will see an adjustment for the Polarscope brightness. If the handset is in 'Stand Alone' mode (i.e. NOT connected to mount) then you will not see the Polarscope option. And for those using EQMOD the mount remembers what it has been set to using the handset, so plug in handset , adjust, and then unplug handset and plug in EQdirect lead. It remembers this setting after power down, so no need to adjust each time.
