Magnus, you can sort of "revive" them by drying them up (hairdryer) , but.... they become very sensitive and freak out very quickly.
I think I know what happened this time, I'll make sure my box is sealed correctly this time.

This more of an idea than a wish list.
Not sure if this feature is available or not yet but there's something that would be nice to have (ok, just for a very minority of us...).
Ability to control multiple mounts simultaneously.
Let's say you have a farm of mounts and scopes and you want them to all point to the same coordinate and take pictures of the same target.
Mounts do not have to be close to each other, they could be miles apart or even in different countries.

A tip for everyone thinking of using a DHT22 sensor:
do NOT get it wet, if you do then you will kill the sensor and no matter what you try to do to fix it, you'll end up buying another one...

This is now my 4th one....

thanks, and I understand that the position is handled by the encoder controller.
Let's imagine this scenario:
everything is connected (mount, scope, encoders etc...), running all fine, you decide to release the mount's clutches and move the scope orientation.
Will the new position be reflected in Ekos via Indi?

yes I meant Indi and not Ekos. Do you have any example of such "absolute" focusers please? I'd like to understand more about it.

Stephane created a new topic ' absolute encoders' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

This is more of a general discussion (for now), absolute encoders if I understand correctly will never loose track of where the mount is pointing to. While digital encoders will loose the data on power loss (ie: switch off the power). I do know there are drivers for DSC (see this thread).

Do we have anybody here on this forum with a mount equipped with absolute encoders?
Will there be such support in Ekos for it in the future?

I'm sure with some super DIY skills, you could potentially adapt such encoders to almost any mounts.
Would love to be able to turn off the mount at any position, restore the power and have Ekos know precisely where the mount is.

Also suggest that your sensor is working.


Yes it does work, maybe the previous sensor I broke was faulty and I was comparing it to that one.

The doc for the DHT22 mentions that the reads should be every 2 seconds at a minimum, and from looking online I also see this:
"The DHT22 only allows readings once every two seconds to prevent self-heating in the chip, since that would skew the humidity readings."

Where in the code, do we have the timeout set to read the DHT please, cannot find it?

I'm currently doing a second test, this time it's with my spare DHT22, plugged it on it's own, in the same water container.
As you can only poll this sensor every 2s, I have to say that it's slow to read the humidity, very slow...

I did get it wet by accident, and that went to 99% very quickly.. lol, a good use of the hair dryer and that fixed it.

Here's my test
The meteo box is in a container with water, not too much so it's not touching the sensor, it's closed (let's say, almost sealed).
I uploaded a test sketch to check the DHT22.





It's been a good 5 min or so, it reached 70%. Not sure if this is right or wrong.
