Jacob Nowatzke created a new topic ' Losmandy Gemini Slew Fails' in the forum. 8 months ago

I can park and unpark the mount all day. Every now and then I get the slew failed error.

I've tried the following:
1) reset Astroberry
2) reset Gemini
3) reset both Astroberry and Gemini
4) reset everything connected (2x ASI CCD, Pegasus UPB, ASI EFW, and of course Astroberry and Gemini)
5) run a scheduler- ran into wild happenings like slew failing seeral times before working.
6) slew with mount control in ekos, start guiding procedure, take frames..... this works. xD hahaha not ideal


I was taking multiple 300sec frames a few nights ago. Given there have been clouds lately, but I could definitely be having much more scope time is EKOS/INDI would stop being so foolish with the Gemini driver.


I'm really not in the mood to reinstall everything because without any updates since, this workflow and INDI profile were working fantastically.
