Hi, as in the subject, I can't get my Dobson working with StellarMate because StellarMate can't connect to the SynScan control.
The INDI driver info I'm using are:
Connection Mode: Ethernet
Conection type: TCP
Trying to connect the mount, INDI claims that
"SynScan failed to connect. Please ensure the device is connected and powered on"
The mount is aligned via SynScan Pro App connected via Wifi by the same Wifi Home network used by StellarMate, so the connection is there; obviously the mount is powered on; so I can't see any other fix for the failure.
Where am I wrong?
Thanks for your reply Karma, but it did'nt work: same error message.
But... instead to refuse immediately the connection, with the configuration you suggested, the "led" remains yellow for a pair of seconds.
Yes indeed. I connected the SynScan to my home network via WiFi; I can use it through my android tablet with the SynScan App, who shows the IP number found by the scanning of the net. More over the same IP number appears on che connection list of the router (and so the Raspberry does), so I suppose the Raspberry shoud not have problems connecting the SynScan which lays on the same network.
In reality, during my attempts I always used the bright star alignment; I can't suspect any difference in order to have the telescope able to be connected by the INDI driver.
Today I'll try with the other alignment methods, if it works I'll remain curious about why a different alignment method makes the difference: in the end any method only define the sky model used by SynScan to calculate the movements of the telescope to point at a new object, I can't see any reason to deny the connection; that seems to me a pure software choice for which I can't understand the reasons.
I can't try right away, I hope I have the chance tomorrow or later.
Meanwhile, I got an idea: is it possible that the connection to the SynScan App on my tablet can inhibit other connections such as the one attempted by the INDI driver on the Raspberry?
