Hi,

It seems to work. I can drive my mount again. I can not do real testing because of bad weather. I will say if everything works, especially if the problem of autoguiding reported here is solved.

Thanks

Problem with EQMod 3 months 2 weeks ago #18401

Hi guys

I'm trying to connect to my EQ6-R whith the EQMod driver via the hand controller.
I run the latest git 7d5271f on an odroid XU4 and use an "pl2303" usb-RS232 converter.
When using
screen /dev/ttyUSB0 9600
I can talk to the mount and issue command and slew it.
However when trying to connect indi I get the following response

Niko, others can correct me if I am wrong, but I think you use the wrong driver. EQMod is for EQ mounts connected with EQDir cable. With handcontroller, you should use SynScan driver.

arghh, that's probably the dumbest rookie mistake one can make.

Now I at least have a proper incentive to build a 1.8 to 3.3 V level shifter to use the GPIO UART :)

Thanks

It's still possible to use EQMod this way if you put the controller in PC-Direct mode.
