He’s running EQMOD 1.28s (correct version?). He is also connecting to all of his devices through an Icron Ranger (I don’t have any experience with them, anyone know if there are any tricks or issues?).
Per the SGP guide, and a tutorial I found on Light Vortex’s website, he has EQMOD setup correct and he can connect to the mount. Here is the rub, when he connects to the mount via PHD2 or SGP, it appears to stop tracking (aka stars start drifting in PHD2). However, if I had him command a slew via CDC, it would start tracking again. The other issue I couldn’t solve was the amount of backlash in his system. He couldn’t calibrate via declination. And, as soon as calibration was complete… mount would stop tracking and I’d have to command a slew to get it tracking again.
He’s going to email me the ASCOM traces. It basically showed that the RA wasn’t tracking and I don’t know how to make it do that. Anyone seen anything like this before?
I’m not an EQMOD user so…
