when using the EQ-Direct cable, do you physically plug it into the slot where the hand controller is usually plugged into?
so the hand controller is removed when using the EQ-Direct cable?
I am on a Mac, and the driver (non INDI) that PHD2 uses to control the mount when I use PHD2 outside of EKOS is called EQ-Mac.
Is the EQ-Mod Indi Driver, the equivalent for the AZ/EQ5, and EKOS?
also so far I have been using a standard USB cable, directly from from my Mac to the Synscan Hand controller, and putting the mount in PC Direct Mode. then the control signal runs through the Hand Controller which becomes passive.
do you think I need a EQ Direct Cable? note my mount also has USB input as well as the Hand Controller input.
thanks for that info Rob. appreciated.
can you advise what driver I should use for a Skywatcher AZ/EQ5 mount?
no I had run KStars at least 5 or 6 times previously.
for the drivers in the INDI library, are we supposed to download and install them ourselves, or are they included with KStars as a default?
also where would they be installed on my Mac?
Hi Rob. yes the Indi Server and Indi drivers box you showed was not ticked.
I ticked them both and then KStars and Ekos is working again.
I wonder how they un-ticked themselves.
I certainly did not turn them off myself.
anyway its working good now. thanks For the assistance.
also I think the set up is ok, but will attach a screenshot to assist.
I Have a12 core Mac Pro running 10.13.6 OS and I have downloaded KStars 3.5.6
initially I was able to configure and connect to my Skywatcher AZ/EQ5 mount and my ZWO-ASI-120mm-S camera, but lately nothing works.
when I try to connect I get the following message.
