There is a big red button on the telescope console. Press it to stop
the telescope, when the telescope is not behaving properly, or
whenever there is a need for pressing it!! After pressing the panic
button, the telescope cannot be moved until RESET has been pressed.
If the telescope moves by itself while in engineering mode, probably
one of the console buttons is sticking. Turn the speed knobs to
minimum and fiddle with the push buttons.
If the telescope moves to the wrong part of the sky while in computer
mode, you might have to redo the ZEROSET.
