Checked again. It slews to the parking position but starts tracking from there again instead of entering parkmode.

Home button is there indeed, great! Is it possbile to place in the mount tab as well?

Finally got time to test the T7M. I made a adapter myself for the finderscope to test it.
I directly noticed the calibration process didn't run smoothly what PHD recognized see attachments.
Now I will make anothe cable as well to test the pinlayout for the T7M as posted earlier here.

See the correct parking commands below according the documentation:

Command: “:MP1#”
Response: “1”
This command invokes the parked mode. In parked mode, the telescope cannot slew, track, and
guide unless a un-park command is issued.
Caution: Any movement caused by hand controller will make the telescope into un-park state.

Command: “:AP#”
Response: “0” Un-parking state, “1” Parking state.
This command gets the parking status.

Command: “:MP0#”
Response: “1”
This command un-parks the telescope.

In front of the park and unpark button I would like to see a “Go To Home” button and a status if the mount is at home.
Command: “:MH#”
Respond: “1”
This command will slew to the “home” position immediately .
Command: “:AH#”
Respond: “0” The telescope is not at “home” position,
Respond: “1” The telescope is at “home” position.
This command returns whether the telescope is at “home” position

Hi Jasem,

When does version 2.9.0 will be released and were can I see this version numbers and release notes / announcements?

I tried again by setting a parking position before pressing the park button.
It doesn't give an error and slews to the park position. But instead of parking the mount it starts tracking.

Are you really sure you are using the correct commands? The commands in the documentation from iOptron are different.
Next to this it would be really great if it will have a home position option so it can slew to sero positions again.

attached the logs of the actions I did.

Thnx Chris.

Now I understand.. the park position wasn't set before using the park command..
According the documentation the 8407HC does only have two parking options depending on the side of pier it is at the moment of calling the park command. That's why I don't understand why it's possible to set a custom parking position (which is great and I need to test actually). How can I see release 2.9.0 is released?

Would it be possible to add a function for returning the mount to the home position (aka zero position) as well and the side of pier it is?

Still no luck.
After a succesfull slew I press park. I hear a beep, but nothing happens and see "error" in the mount control.

do notice in the logs I see the wrong commands are used for parking, below the correct ones.

Command: “:AP#”
Response: “0” Un-parking state, “1” Parking state.
This command gets the parking status.

Command: “:MP0#”
Response: “1”
This command un-parks the telescope.

Command: “:MP1#”
Response: “1”
This command invokes the parked mode. In parked mode, the telescope cannot slew, track, and
guide unless a un-park command is issued.
Caution: Any movement caused by hand controller will make the telescope into un-park state.

thanks, need some time to test it :)
any idea how to mount this cam to a simple finderscope 8x50?

Chris replied to the topic 'iEQ45 GTN 8407 and 8406' in the forum. 2 months ago

indi_ieq_telescpe is not for the iEQ45 2013 and earlier models. This one is for the iEQ45 PRO.
This should be added to the indi_lx200zeq25.

Besides this, there are multiple iOptron mount options all with different names.
Maybe it's better to name them more consistently? My suggestion should be to put "iOptron" as prefix:

- iOptron iEQ45 HC8406
- iOptron iEQ45 HC8407
- iOptron iEQ45 Pro
- iOptron iEQ30 --> not sure of this is for the pro version?
- iOptron ZEQ25


Also the driversshould be name more consistently maybe like suggested above?

I bought the cam especially for the rpi for guiding :).
The QHY5 that doesn't work on rpi is perfectly working under windows.

I think the problem will not be that big when using the cam with PHD2 and a interval of > 1s ..
8bit mode is on. Will update here soon if I tested it at night :).

this is happening on still capture too.
bandwith is set to 40 in the controls tab.
It's not constantly.. but happens often.

Didn't used the cd that came with the camera? Can't imagine I should, but do I need to install somethinh additiona as well?

flashed the firmware and now the cam is working on rpi both ekos and phd. its also working on windows phd2.
The only problem now is that the screen is constantly a bit messed up. See pictures attached.

I did connected the cam via powered hub and did the update of indi yesterday with latest.
But I didn’t flashed the firmware. Where can I find instructions for that?

Will try in Windows quickly.

@nmac, finally I received my T7M :). Connecting with Pi works, but I'm not able to shoot an image.. at least in the imaging tab pressing the preview button never stops capturing and no result is coming. Even Ekos stops or gives a message that the ASI driver crashed.

I updated the all indi libraries, rebooted the system etc.but nothing helps.
Could it be that I need to flash the firmware of the cam before usage because it isn't a real ASI?

Attached logs of ekos en indi.

Regards,
Chris.
