I have been helping iOptron test a new beta of the Commander and ASCOM driver and am happy to report that with beta v220.127.116.11, auto meridian flip now works without needing to put in a settling time of 60 sec. Slew reporting appears to be working correctly so far in my tests.
But I’m having a problem which i think is related to my laptop. When I try to have SGP connect to the iOptron Commander/ASCOM driver, it loads the iOptron panel but then there is a long delay and SGP then gives an error stating that it cannot connect to the ASCOM driver. If the driver/Commander is already open, the SGP connects just fine. The same happens with PHD2 which is why I believe it is related to my laptop. I reverted back to the released v5.0 version of the Commander and it still doesn’t work. I did a system restore on my laptop back to a point before installing the beta drivers and it still doesn’t work.
Any ideas where I might look for the problem. I’ve attached a log where I just selected the mount driver and tried to connect.
