Luca Gervasi created a new topic ' Skywatcher NEQ6 Pro tracking issue' in the forum. 2 months ago

Hi!
I have a strange issue lately with my NEQ6 (indi_eqmod). It seems that, even if i (supposedly) correctly polar aligned it, my mount is not "tracking" as I expect it would.
My stars are strips even at 30 seconds exposures and when I try higher exposures, i got this: on astrometry .
I suspect I have something badly configured on kstars and or indi_eqmod.
May you please point me to some debug information or hints?

Thanks
Luca

Hello,
i'm valuating a camera which works "well" on indilib and matches both my budget and my expectations. I'm leaving my crappy Qhy 183C (countless nights spent having to reboot after each frame) to either:
* ASI 1600 MM Pro
* ASI 183MM Pro

I'd prefer the 1600 MM Pro as the sensor and pixel size is bigger (4/3" vs 1"). But please, give me advises :)

Thanks
Luca

I was just thinking about buying the same camera. Lucky me got to search in the forum :)

Thanks for sharing your experience!

I was not aware of that. Actually I have a udev rule that fxloads the firmware :(
I'll remove it and try right this night (if the sky is available :( )
Thanks!

Several months ago (even years maybe), I was looking for a way to motorised the polar alignment (as long as the mount is roughly aligned).

Obviously if you are lucky enough to own a Merlino Uno mount it's build in.

(mute the music.... it's seriously annoying)

On the DIY approach the one I've seen is from Kevin Sipprell www.scopefocus.info/polar-alignment
I do have a HEQ5 and his mount is a Celestron CGEM, but the PA method is the same.
From the link, have a look at the two videos, I do think there is potential.
The motors used are geared nema17 stepper 90:1 similar to this one

I have also found the following pictures (from this post ) which are very interesting:

IMG_0512.thumb.JPG.07dc8718229b0d3158645c554e4e91dc.JPG



I'm going to take a few measurements on my HEQ5 before I go back home and start a little project.
Being able to remotely set and adjust the polar alignment as needed is plus for any remote observatory.

Hi!
How is It going? :)
I have an neq6 and I'm Pretty interessed :)

Hello,
it seems that Sesto Senso (Primaluce lab's own focuser) drivers has been included in indilib build 1.5.0+ ( www.indilib.org/devices/focusers/sesto-senso.html ).
I'm willing to buy it and i'm looking for reviews.

Is anyone using it? Is it worth it?

Thanks

Luca

I still have the hope that the problem will go away when i attach a powered USB 2.0 Hub.
Still waiting that it will be delivered.

Thanx

I tried it after reading your message. It doesn't work either, sorry.

Bye
