My last two imaging sessions, something went awry. First time I thought it was me. Second time, it might still be me, yet I thought I would reach out.

Symptom: After polar aligning and star aligning my CGEM via hand controlller and such, Ekos/INDI would not slew my mount as it normally would. I am using the Celestron GPS driver for my CGEM-DX.

The hand controller would skew the mount fine.

Picking any object via Kstars, or the mount controls to search and goto, would not skew the mount at all.

Hitting the unpark button would report mount is already unparked.

The solution: hit the park button. This moved the mount to a position. Once it parked, I then hit the unpark button and the mount could skew once more. I also found I had to toggle tracking on and off after this as well.

I can try to duplicate again in a week or so.

Any thoughts on what this might have been.

Nothing has changed in INDI or Ekos regarding this, so it is odd. If you enable verbose logging in the Celestron driver, you see see commands being sent to the mount when you slew?

Now that I know what to look for I will enable the mount logs in next session.

I will post back results.

Thank you.
