Hi guys, I'm new in Astroberry. I've got a Raspberry Pi 4b with 8GB RAM and a AZEQ6 Skywatcher mount. I'm trying to connect RPI to AZEQ6 mount by USB directly on head-mount and EQMOD, but the RPI don't find the mount.
Please, could you help me? Where must I connect the mount?

Thank you so much and best regards,
German

Hi German, 

Is there any error message? Is the power supply strong enough ( I have had strange problems using a too weak power supply)?

Before I switched to NINA on my AZEQ6 I worked with Astroberry and it worked immediately.

I have had this issue for three weeks now, and I have been using Stellarmate and Astroberry for over two years, and I have tried everything and it will not work, so I have had to move away from a Raspberry PI to a mini PC with Ubuntu…very sad times for me….so good luck….

The mount has got the current corresponding and the RPI has got a power supply Labists (Output 5V / 3A). I think I resolve the problem, I've update the library and it looks work. I have to try it another night.

Thank you so much,
Germán.

With mount and computer connected with a standard USB cable, the Baud Rate for Ekos to see the mount should be set to 115200.
Hope that helps.

I'm certainly no expert but might be able to point you in the right direction ...
I have an AZEQ6 connected via bluetooth but I assume the same principles apply. I did an update recently and found the fix for my issue was simple.
assuming your using INDI control panel and have EQMod Mount set as your mount in the imaging software your using....
INDI control panel needs to know which device/port to use (in your case...usb, my case bluetooth) for its connection to the mount.
from a command line type "lsusb" to make sure your eqmod is at least recognised by your system.
this is where you'll have to do some info hunting of your own i'm afraid.
when i connect my bluetooth eqmod, I then create a virtual serial port (in my case it's called rfcomm0)
I have that saved in the "port" section of the "connection" tab for EQMod Mount in INDI control panel as /dev/rfcomm0
yours will look need to look something like this ... /dev/ttyUSB2. you just need to figure out which USB device it is.
if you don't have the right port/usb device set it just won't connect. when my setup had mount issues...this sorted it for me
hope it helps you at least start to figure out what's wrong.
