Hi!

If I get the manual right, code 6 means "outside limits".

I've had similar issues at times. I would advise you to check the safety and GOTO limits. And if you've changed the limits, at least my Gemini 2 needs to be restarted (else errors such as these occur).

I recognize that at times, the Gemini seems to be confused, as if the model and/or limits are changed. Cold starting would then reset to normal operation. This just might be related to power as well - might there be temporary power losses to you mount? Do you run it on 12V or higher?

Hi!

Two different locations? How do you mean, in my log files?

Yeah, a huge thanks to Jasem and to Chris!!!

Hi!

I'm not really sure what causes the problem, but it manifests as small adjustments in RA, about 10", at times casuses real runaway slews. What causes this is beyond me, but clearly a firmware issue.

As this is Gemini-firmware, I don't hink it can be realted to your iOptron issue.

Hi all!

Latest news on this: after a long stretch of testing, that is, Jasem doing the testing and me mostly watching, we found out that this is indeed a mount issue. It is reproducible in windows. We found out how to systematically reproduce it and could do in win to.
And: it is actually a known issue (seemingly not well communicated though). THere is a beta firmware, and it seems to solve the issue!! (this far)

So thanks all for helping me out with this, and again, particularly to Chris for fixing that irritating side-of-pier issue that had nothing to do with this!!

One happy amateur over here!

Hi!

OK, scope verbose turned on. And here is what happened this night. To my mind similar stuff, while I was sleeping. Then there is a camera failure, but I know of that.

But this slew is disastrous. Here it slews a long way and HA goes from several hours negative to positive

BUt the solver thinks it is successful:

THen it starts guiding and tries to capture. Then another slew starts in the middle of this:

I have no idea what this is

Any ideas?

Hi!

Yes, I see the start of the second slew, #47229. I have no clue to what started this. There are stuff about "Mount State" changing around this - anything related?

I've got Mount checked in Ekos, verbose, to file. Anything else I can do to produce more data?

Hi!

Thanks for having a look at it Chris!! THe slew that you are looking at there, did not "end". It ran into the safety limit, and there I extracted the log and manually stopped the process.

As for more info: what can I do? I've got driver log turned on for the mount in the Ekos log window as well as in the Indi window. What more settings should I turn on?

Hi!

I had another disastrous slew tonight, this time with the differential alignment option checked. Solver issues a slight slew and says alignment is successful, while the mount slews more than 90 degrees to the safety limit. THe job where this happes start at line 43979. Log attached.

Magnus Larsson replied to the topic 'Help understanding the log - what happened here?' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

Hi!

I have another case here. Unfortunately, this one is with the "differential slew" disabled. I toggled that on and off, and was a bit worried by the fact that when checked, the solver did not take a final shot, validating the position. So I turned it off. And this happened.

This time, the mount did not fail to slew, it was not "caught" in the safety limit. But it went far away from the target (while I slept). We are trying to image the Cave Nebula here, Sh2-155. So here are some extracts from the log. My main question now, concerns that fact that it seems that the aligment process shifts the target position along the way. It starts out with the correct coordinates, but in the end, after a disastrous slew, suddenly has new coordinates. So my question: how can that happen?

I will continue to test with the "differential slew" checked, but post this anyway, as just another piece of the puzzle, perhaps. And I'm thinking, could this in any way be connected to the recent changes in the driver that Chris made, to solve the problem of pierside not following ASCOM standards? (which was extremely helpful for me)?

Here are some extracts from the log file, attached in its entirety:

Goes on to slew. And it slews far off. And I am not interrupting here.

Line 43680 – finished slewing. Now we are very far from the object, as seen by the hour angle. How does the solver handle this?

OK, got it. Testing now.

But: what it does now, is plate solve and then slews to what it thinks is the correct position. But it does not take a new image there to check. It did that before, so I could see visually that the object was centred. Is this the correct behavior now, or is there another setting I might have shifted or should change?
