Roof not closing


#1

Hello,
I have a problem not solved in the few last versions.
In older ones I had no that problem…

I have checked the Slave Settings at the “Equipment Profile Manager”.
But at the end of the sequence, the scope is parked but the roof keeps open.

I have seen that at the “Control Pane”, at the Observatory section, “Observatory Slaving” is always unchecked.

If I check the “Slave to telescope” at this section (Control Panel), at the end of the sequence the Roof is closed!!.

I add the log with 4 experimental sequences (and also the file uploaded)i:

2 with only the “Equipment Profile manager” Slave setting active,

and 2 more with “Control Panel” Slave settings active,

The roof only closes in the Control Panel ones.

But if I forget to modify each time the Control Panel Section, the roof never closes!!
Thank you
Fernando

Edit: I tried in 2.6.0.1 version and also in 2.6.0.5 with the same result.

I’m not entirely following what is happening here. Do you have the following options set in the observatory slaving area?

Thanks,
Jared

Sorry for the delay!
Yes, of course. That’s my configuration at the Observatory tab area.
I also tried checking the “park observatory with mount”, although I know is not for roll on roof!
The result is the same.

What I want to try know is un-checking all the options, saving, closing and exiting SGP, and opening it again and checking those options again.
All this, in case the software is showing the options as marked but they are really not taken into account.

I don’t remember the software version the problem begun.

Thanks again.

So the telescope park command is what triggers the observatory to close, but ONLY when slaved. So if you want the observatory to close when the scope gets parked you’ll need to make sure that the “Observatory Slaving” checkbox is checked. Otherwise the observatory will not open/close when the mount unparks/parks.

If you want SGP to automatically slave things when you start your sequence you’ll need to make sure and have the “Slave on Sequence Start” option checked. Otherwise you will need to manually slave them yourself by checking the “Slave to telescope” box on the Control Panel:

Thanks,
Jared

Thank you, Jared.
I did not understood clearly that option.
I’ll try tonight and I’ll keep you informed!
Thx again
