Hi Tim,
I had slewing issues when I upgraded last week but slightly different.  I lost pulse guiding for PHD2 and the slow speed slew in CdC (.2083) wouldn’t work.  ASCOM Device Hub may be the issue.  Jerry H stated he wasn’t having any issues but that when he upgraded, he selected the option to keep POTH hub in the download.  I uninstalled 6.5, found an old 6.0 version on line, and reinstalled to get POTH back.  Then I reinstalled 6.5 and elected to keep POTH hub in the download.  All is well now...

Hope this helps.

Im not sure if this is the correct place to ask this, I finally upgraded to ascot 6.5 sp1 and am having strange behavior when slewing my mount Exos2-gt pic-8. When I was slewing last night trying to use my PoleMaster for polar alignment. when I said slew east the my scope and camera moved west, I would;d select east again and about 99% of the time it would go west and every blue moon it would go back to the east. I am puzzled and scratching my head. I have looked at all the places to put my location in and I think they are correct. Has anyone else had this issue or have suggestions. I did a complete uninstall and re install of ascom but have not had a chance to test it yet.
