TOPIC: Autoguiding Star Adventurer |Ekos

Autoguiding Star Adventurer |Ekos 4 months 2 weeks ago #17686


I am trying to configure autoguiding with Star Adventurer with EKOS and PHD2. Current set up is Nikon D810 as main camera, ZWO120 mms as guide and SA as the mount. Guide port of SA is connected with ST4 cable to guide of ZWO . ZWO Usb is pluuged into RPI.

Ekos is able to connect to ZWO without issues. But fails to connect to SA . Please advise what am I missing here.

In the EKOS profile, i Have chosen mount as EQMOD mount. and I get below error.

2017-07-07T17:00:23: Failed to connect to port (/dev/ttyUSB0). Error: Port failure Error: No such file or directory. Check if device is connected to this port.
2017-07-07T17:00:23: Connecting to /dev/ttyUSB0
2017-07-07T17:00:23: Trying connection to /dev/ttyUSB0 @ 9600 ...
2017-07-07T17:00:23: Communication with /dev/ttyUSB0 @ 9600 failed. Starting Auto Search...

Any advice would be appreciated.

PS: PHD2 works fine with ZWO and on Camera mount

I was able to get this working by setting the baud rate to 115200 instead of 9600 and connecting the usb cable from PI to mount even though my mount was being powered by 4 AA batteries. So is it must to connect the cable to PI to get this working?

I was able to auto guide using iAstroHub without using this usb cable to mount, why does ekos/Indi requires me to connect this usb?
