Random Failed Plate Solving


#1

I’ve had my Atlas Pro out a few times now without seeing this issue, but tonight I could not get it to plate solve. I could do a blind sync and solve, and then I put a link in from astrobin and hit center now I either get an error message (see pic below) and the mount doesn’t move or it slews and then cant seem to make adjustments to center the target. I’ve attached what I think is the failure from the logs. Thanks!!

#2

Anyone? Hoping to get some insight before going out again tonight. Going to uninstall the mount drivers and reinstall. Just thought maybe someone could tell from the logs


#3

Not entirely. It seems like your mount is throwing an exception when we attempt to ask if we can even sync it (CanSync).

Maybe see if there are updated mount drivers?

Thanks,
Jared
