Just been trying it in the gaps in the cloud.
Using Maxim I have to start MW first otherwise the camera light sticks on yellow.
Also have to remember to cancel Stickstation as that is shown in the log as endlessly trying to connect and failing. Even though I clear it in the ASCOM driver settings and save the profile it tries to reload every time.
I have got the MBox2 but been holding off on using it as advised to wait for latest 10Micron update as they’ve activated some of the stuff in the mount so no need for the 10m specific MBox software anymore.
When it all goes pear shaped the cancel button in ME goes red but it freezes everything and I have to restart it all.
Got the frame setting set to 100% but it was only taking very small images which obviously won’t solve.
Updated PinPoint full version in case that was a problem but I don’t think it was as if I saved one of the images from SGP and solved it separately it solved OK.
Using the mount as hotspot option which connects to MW and works OK, the only problem with that is for some reason known only to M’Soft it times out after 20 min’s or so.
Focus is spot on.
Just started over and now it’s taking proper sized images but it’s also gone cloudy so don’t know if they will solve or not, hoping for some more clear forecast later.
Just noticed that the pointing info in the hand controller is different to MW 18hrs RA in hand controller and 23hrs RA in MW. scope parked up North.
Where does MW get coord’s from ?
I did check this the other day centring on Vega and it was all showing the same correct cord’s
I have got another laptop with ethernet socket so will try loading everything on that to try just in case.
Going away to a dark site tomorrow for a couple of days so will have another go at it then if the cloud doesn’t clear tonight and will have another try at using SGP.
Using the 10Micron GPS ATM, trying to use UTC so got GPS Port-GPS, Local data -use GPS
Local data -clock -timezone- 0
Local data- clock- DST off
Does this sound right to you ?
Will there be a conflict if MW is using the PC clock ?
