Stephane created a new topic ' custom driver question' in the forum. 3 days ago

Derek has kindly modified his Aldi roof driver so that I can use the GPIO of my Odroid C1 as the Arduino and serial connection are not working.
Now I need to clean up bits and bobs from the driver.
How can I remove everything but 'Driver info'. It's bugging me as I cannot find it myself.



thanks

ok, but I was under the impression that for example in high end mounts, you could disconnect the power, turn the mount RA/DEC around, reconnect and the system would know exactly where it is. Am I missing something or what I'm talking about is not DSC.

Can a DSC be used in case of power loss, so that the system knows exactly how is the mount pointing?

It actually turns out that you do need the power on for the Atik 314L on the Mac, if not powered up it won't be recognised and the light will still be yellow.
The QHY5 however has a faint red light at the back but still doesn't work.

mkay, so now it works. Something must have gone wrong on my Macbook air. Unplugged the USB cable and the power to the Atik a few times and it's now green.
very strange...

Stephane created a new topic ' visual representation of mount position' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

I think this is something that would help anyone running a remote observatory.
Have a tab in Ekos where you can see an animation of of a 3D model of your mount, as in the direction of the mount ~up/down etc...

If I remember correctly, if you have enabled the 'mount limits' then you might get this message. I have not used my observatory in months, my memory might be flaky...
Will let you know once I restart the box.

For those who have the done the mod, was it worth it?
I can't stand the grinding noise, it's not pleasant to my ears.

Thanks for the video link, yes this is when you for example retrofit motors to an EQ3-2 ( I had done the mod before) and you use non-standard cogs.
The installation instructions at www.rowanastronomy.com/pdf/HEQ5-Belt-Kit.pdf do not mention having to reconfigure anything.

The pulley ratio is the same as the factory gears. This means the
Synscan hand controller is unaffected by this upgrade. All Synscan
functions will operate as before.

Would you have a link to that video you watched please? I'm also thinking of doing the mod to y HEQ5 mount but I've never heard you had to change any ratios anywhere.
