Oh yes !!!

I have not found anything so far, and i gave up.

BTW : may i recommend much better drivers ?
TMC2100 are soooooo smooth and silent !

Sorry, I do not undestand this :)

"autodiscover" was wrong, sorry :
on indi control panel, "connection" tab, disable "autosearch" option (to avoid too much reset actions...)

Hmm. I tried use EQMod on Windows. Tracking starts at once after click on Tracking button.
I will look for a solution on AstroEQ forum.
Thanks!
P.S. Sorry for my bad English..

Yes,i think EQMOD and Indi handshake protocols are different...

hi
standby for me, but :
i "think" these troubles could be related to initialization :
With arduino's stuff, a RST is sent when a serial connection arrives...
To avoid that, i will certainly put a 100uF cap between +5V and RST pins of arduino, just like
i've not tried yet...
you could also try to see on AstroEQ forum, i think there are some threads about that...

This seems to work, but i guess it could bring issues, what do you think ?

Hi,

i've noticed CCD resolution is limited to 4096 :
Is there any technical reason for that ?
=> some of us would like to play with astrometry with a fake DSLR, wich goes further than 4096

gehelem created a new topic ' FOV must be 30 arcmins or wider' in the forum. 5 months ago

Hi

Some of us here would like to use polar assistant, but their configuration (4/3 DSLR + C11) is resulting in too small FOV
Thus, here is the question :
Is it really mandatory to have such a wide FOV ?
What do we loose ? Precision ?
Or is it just because the risk is to not have real north and the mount north on one frame ?

Gilles.
