I have not done any more debugging nor research into this. I believe that the issue lies with the red area being projected in the foreground instead of going behind as it should when you spin the globe.

ChrisRowland wrote: Would it be possible to have a microswitch that will be operated by the OTA as it reaches the park position? You can get microswitches with long arms that are designed for this sort of thing, you may already have some on your roof.

The switch is connected to an input of your observatory safety system, the rest is just software.

I use this kind of limit switch to check if my roof is closed or opened.


In fact, I do have a couple of spare ones, I think I'll add one to be sure the scope is 100% parked.
If you do go down that route, do not get them micro switches, I used that before and they do fail as they are fragile. Get that heavy duty like in the picture above there.

That's probably good enough if you want to reset the device attached to the hub but not so if you want to completely power off the device.

Looking at the schematic for the ODroid N2 ( dn.odroid.com/S922X/ODROID-N2/Schematic/..._rev0.4_20190307.pdf ), it would seem that everything is there to power-control the USB hub on a per port basis but the particular USB controller for the ODroid N2 may not be suppored by 'uhubctl'.

If you have any other suggestions as to performing more tests, let me know and I will try to investigate a bit more.


Thanks for the tests, much appreciated. I'm currently using a ykush device to properly cut off the power from the USB ports.
Being able to cut off the power from the USB devices is a must for me, my observatory is far away from home...
