Last night i updated my Leonardo and installed the NEXDOME driver on INDI and also the NEW version on Windows...

First, when testing INDI, and after having issues with my mount, i decided to test the NEXDOME implementation, it connects to the board, i start homing the dome, the sensor stops the dome on the right place but somehow the board is not sending the message to the driver saying AT HOME!!! so i can't use the dome!!!!
I had used the dome before from SGP using the ASCOM driver, all fine, but now with the new firmware and ascom driver i have the same problem, it starts the homing procedure, stops at the sensor, doesn't report back to ASCOM that it is there, so it never enables the calibrate button....
Don't know how to get error codes or log from INDI but managed to get this from the ASCOM SGP error window.

ee the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

diego created a new topic ' Takahashi NJP Southern Hemisphere' in the forum. 6 years ago

Hi Forum, i am a new INDI fan, but having some issues, my NJP mount works fine with ASCOM, but somehow, when using INDI it does not understand i am on the southern hemisphere, so it continues tracking to the wrong side......
When i connect the mount using ASCOM, it adjust location and tracks correctly, but last night it i could not find a setting or button on INDI to make the mount behave as it should....

I am sure i am missing something, please advice....
