Tonight SGP would not slew my mount (EQ6) anywhere. Plate solving worked fine - the mount just would not be budged.
I always connect to the mount via Celestron Scope Driver (which has worked perfectly for a year and is what I would always use) . As this didn’t work I tried selecting the Celestron Telescope Driver instead. This worked and the mount slewed to my target. The problem is, this won’t allow me to connect to PHD [I get a ‘driver does not support pulse guiding error’. I’m connecting the mount to the laptop with an RS232 to USB kit]
I was using the last version of SGP 2.3 release - but I saw that this is no longer supported. So I reluctantly upgraded to the last 2.4 release. I encountered the same problem.
Can anyone help please? Without being able to simply and quickly plate solve to a target CCD imaging becomes impossible !
As an aside, is anyone using the Celestron Telscope Driver with an EQ6 successfully together with PHD2 (and if so - how are you connecting?)
Thanks. Log files attached.
