Scorpius region.

Another "hardware" style solution - put a riser under your scope mounting point to the mount saddle to move it out further.

I doubt the scope is that heavy that moving it further away from the centre would hurt.

There's a Google Groups area for CEM120 owners if you're interested: groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/ioptron-cem120-user-group

Also, I should be getting the last of the dome work done tomorrow so I'll be in for real testing during the next week or so.

What version of the firmware do you have installed on your mount? There was a fix in a recent version to do with park positions - maybe a more recent version might fix your problem?

I'll also keep it in mind when I get to play with it all again.

You plug the computer into the mount. You've got 4 choices for this: USB, Serial, Wifi, Wired Ethernet.

I've got a CEM120EC2. I've had a play around with it inside the house, but I'm not quite setup in the dome to go for real.

As far as I could tell, I didn't have issues with INDI/EKOS.

Interesting developments.

I looked at the repo, and saw this file: github.com/JeffRossMT/sitech-indi-driver...ope_sitechReadMe.txt

Point 4 is interesting - it seems to imply you need to run an app somewhere on the network on what I assume is a windows box. Am I wrong?

No, I just try to remember to explicitly load the config first before connecting. I've noticed the same problem with other devices as well, do it might be something common relating to how config is handled.

Yes, that's exactly what I want to do. My main processing machine with PixInsight is Linux only, so I want to build up the tools there for solar and planetary.

Thanks, that's some good suggestions there.
