I have developed some sort of issue with plat solving. While it works it does not work consistently.
Here are the symptoms.
At first start up I go to solve and synch and it has to resort to a blind solve. After the blind solve is done regular plate solving works within seconds.
But if I slew to a new position well I usually have to invoke a blind solve again as regular plate solve grinds for many minutes and I loose patience with it. Doubly so after a flip.
Again after the blind solve regular solve works in seconds and centering the target works without a hitch. Till it slews to a new target. Then back to blind solving.
It is as if it does not do a good job of knowing where it is pointing.
I also noticed that the mount doesent hit the park position quite right RA is good but Dec is off by 10 degrees or so to the east.
After last nights sequence failed after a flip I decided it was time to look into this.
What are some of the likely causes of this behavior, where should I look?
Oh it is an Atlas Pro AZ/EQ mount.
