After a bit more study it was pretty obvious and I've got it figured out. Thanks, Nnvgazr

Am a complete novice. Just purchased a Celestron C6-NGT computerized. Have not done anything but put it together, roughly align the finder scope, balance the tube in R.A. and the telescope in DEC. My question, before putting power to the control and turning it on, do the front and rear latitude levers and DEC, R.A. clamps need to be released? Haven't got to the azimuth knobs yet so they are backed out. I'm guessing the latitude levers don't matter but the DEC & R.A. clamps have to be loose for it to move? Thinking now, a silly question but the manual leaves some to be desired for a beginner dazzled by all the functions. Thanks.
