Thanks for the reply! The way the high precision point works is with the starlock. Upon a goto the scope will slew to a bright star in it’s database near your target. Starlock will then engage it’s two cameras and center the star and sync that location. Scope will then continue on to the target. I know I have to turn off the High Precision part, and disengage starlock until plate solve is complete. My problem is that under SGP the scope will slew to the target area, plate solve by taking a picture and comparing it to the catalog. Does this just fine, gets a solution but scope will never move the final bit to complete the solution. I believe it to be the fault of the driver we are stuck using not doing a sync update or center here function. I can get the scope to slew to position pretty accurately with the starlock and high precision point…the target is almost always in the camera sensor, but I wanted to be able to plate solve so I could take multiple nights worth of data. If Meade had left the firmware numbering scheme the same the old LX200gps driver would have worked (pretty sure), but they changed to 1.1.g for the starlock version. Now the old driver errors out saying the firmware in the LX600 is out of date., and the new one isn’t fully implemented. Really frustrating!. Meade hasn’t shown the slightest interest in getting an updated driver into the field at all. May decide to sell the scope and go with a Celestron. At least those mounts can plate solve.
Thanks for listening,
