Last June I tried the AutoStar attachment to an ETX125 using satellite
elements uploaded from a PC.

Yes, it aledgedly does track the sats. There's menu options specifically for
this.

In order to get it to work, it seemed to need patience beyond mine: the 6800
based microcontroller really struggles to make predictions. And when it did,
they seemed to be way off compared to Nova.

See http://www.g6lvb.com/etx125.htm for a tongue in cheek explanation.
