I’ve been running plate solve 2 for some time, but have started having frustrating errors with it, where it doesn’t seem to be able to move the scope through EQMod after 2 or three iterations of plate solvee, then keeps trying to platesolve until either i run out of patitience, or it runs out of retry attempts.
I have recently upgraded the laptop to windows 10, but experienced this issue before that.
I’m running SGP 22.214.171.124, EQMOD V1.29a (recently upgraded), PHD2 2.6.1, plate solve 2. I’ve recently changed mounts from an EQ6 Pro to an AzEQ6 Pro. Not sure if this has caused any issues in setup (changed the relevant eqmod cables etc, but not much else).
Same Cameras/Imaging/Guiding train. Any suggestions on where to look? Tonight it got stuck on the meridian flip (had to reboot machine and resume sequence twice to get it started, then when it hit meridian it refused to flip - with the time to flip, continually running down to about 12 minutes, then increasing again… odd. I have eqmod installed with voices, and every 2 minutes or so it would say ‘sync’ and the time would go back up again).
something in the setup somewhere is NQR - not sure if it’s a PEBCAK error or what - but it’s driven me quite nuts tonight. I have clear skies, and a system that simply refuses to resume imaging and platesolve.
Any help or suggestions appreciated.
