good thing I readied early

I had everything set up. 'Scope. Enhanced mount. Computer. Camera.

I was not going to worry about collimation.

Spent about 45 minutes looking for the data cable for the GoToStar hand controller. Didn't see it in the mount bag (when in fact it was there, tangled in the Vixen cables). Looked on my desk. Looked on the file cabinet. Looked in the GoToStar box. Looked where the mount had been lying. Looked in astronomy box alpha;. Looked on my desk again. ... Grey. Not.
