Hi everyone
Sorry. I never reported back.
It works fine. Now, a lost guide star does not mean the end of imaging:)

Thanks so much for this fix.
Clear skies.

Ak, OK. It's case sensitive:
EQMod Mount
but not:
EQMod mount

And now the fits header records from eqmod.
Will test tonight.

Hi. Sorry. Still not working.

The RA and DEC are always recorded as NCP in the fits header.Any ideas?
How can I make the fits record from EQMod?

Capture and solve and slew to target are working fine.

Thanks

Hi. Thanks. Yes, that's it.
I just truied with the simulator and it DOES record the correct RA and DEC.

What could cause it not to record the coordinates with EQMOD?
TIA
