Hi Steve,

Yes, I would appreciate any testing you would like to do once we have completed our internal Alpha testing. We have yet to create a standard installation package for the new server/driver, but once we have done that, it will be easier to distribute and get feedback on it. I am hoping we can do this within the next couple of weeks (crossing my fingers!)

Thank you.  Yes I have learned a little about stacking.  Thanks for the other suggestions, awesome.
This evening 2am was going to try andromeda galaxy again, 3rd star alignment, ready to goto, and bang....clouds.  Lol
The moon was in the south so I had a little fun with it.  100 frames stacked in registax 6, a little edit in gimp.  
fun stuff.  This time I captured the frames in .fit.  Yay

Re: Slewing behavior: POTH Hub vs Device Hub #ASCOM #iEXOS-100

Steve Lang
 

Hey Jerry.

1) I downloaded and installed devicehub (on Ascom Platofrm 6.4 sp1/latest/whatever) and noticed similar behavior with NINA. It worked for a while, then failed to slew and was generally not responsive. Had to restart ascom and use POTH instead, but I'm not convinced that devicehub is compatible with 6.4sp1 anyway. Will try to log a fault with dev's, but...

2) More importantly, I'm keen to test the new ascom driver with built in server (no POTH required.) Would prefer to do that with 6.4sp1 (my current setup) if that's useful to you, and I can test/run ascom conformance tool as well.

I would suggest that if you are having problems with specific applications on the new ASCOM 6.5 platform, that you report it to the Application developer and also to the ASCOM-Standards developers. There is an ASCOM Platform Groups.io forum where you can report these issues and discuss them at:

https://ascomtalk.groups.io/g/Help

I am not going to pursue this myself as we are currently actively working on our PMC-Eight ASCOM Server that we will be releasing soon.
This will do away with the need to use POTH or the Device Hub. In the meantime,

I suggest that anyone wanting to use the new ASCOM platform 6.5 that you select POTH when you download the platform in the list of components to download. This is not automatically selected since it has been deprecated in this new platform version, but it is still available to select and install.

Nice image.

I just bought a zenithstar 73 apo doublet and the exos 2 pmc eight mount, and a zwo asi294mc pro camera.  
My very first photo of the sky ever at age 61 lol.  So what went wrong?  Andromeda Galaxy
1.  too short of the exposures (30 seconds)
2.  I meant to capture images in the .Fitt format and chose .Ser by mistake
3.  It was going to be sun up soon so I rushed
4.  I did not have gain dialed in with the short exposure time
5.  Probably 10 other things I have not learned yet, lol

I did manage to polar align in sharpcap pro accurately, 3 star align with Explorestars, and slew to Andromeda with it in the corner of my FOV, so I guess I did something right for the first time ever trying this.

I am now addicted, learning today and installing/configuring astrotortilla plate solving tool to use in sharpcap pro.
fun fun fun

HI Pavel,

Yes, I responded to that discussion on CloudyNights. A 10 degree shift in angle with the north facing tripod leg is an effective strategy and will still result in a stable mount, but if you do that we always suggest that you provide some kind of anchor on the north leg in the ground to mitigate any chance of the mount toppling over. As long as the base of the tripod is level in the east/west direction it will work fine when tracking and aligning the mount. With an anchored north leg, you would probably be able to increase the altitude to an effective 80 degrees which should cover just about anyone wanting to use this mount.

Using iEXOS-100 beyond 60˚N/S #iEXOS-100

Pavel
 

Hi,
I would like to ask if there is someone using the iEXOS-100 mount beyond 60˚ north/south. It is obvious to anyone who tried that the R.A. lock knob and the latitude adjustment knob crash together somewhere after 59 degrees.  The question has just been raised on CloudyNights as well and some modifications have been suggested to avoid the crash, but apparently the mount still cannot be effectively set to more than 65 degrees.

As an occasional visitor to Northern Europe (one of the last areas without light pollution around, but with latitudes between 60 and 70 degrees), I have also thought about setting one leg of the tripod to the south and shortening it. It might be enough for visual observation. But would it be stable? And would it be usable for astrophotography? Any better ideas?

Best regards,
Pavel

locked Re: Raspberry Pi

(Not sure anyone answered here)
Just use a serial terminal on your RPi commandline (screen, minicom or
similar) to enter the command to your USB/serial port.

Pavel

Hi Vince,

sorry, that was a little bit unclear written by me.

I used nc (netcat) via terminal and I could change to serial mode with
„ESX!“. But after this, the wifi connection is lost and I don’t know how
to switch back using the RPi4.

Subject: [ESPMC-Eight] EXOS 2 / PMC-Eight not keeping track of tracking during slews #EXOS2
 
Hello, My first time in this forum.
While getting set up with POTH connections to multiple apps (TheSky6, PHD 2, and SharpCap) I notice a strange behavior during even very short slews in both Dec and RA.
I assume that since the EXOS 2 has no encoders to report scope position, the polling must use stepper counts to report position.  When I do a short jog in either Dec or RA and then an opposite jog to return, the scope reports a substantial error in RA.  It is always an arc-minute or more to the East.  My thinking is that either the mount is not tracking during the slew, or the appropriate motor counts (slew plus tracking) are not accounted for.  This also occurs whenever I slew to another target and then back.  Fortunately, the manual guide tool (pulse guide) in PHD 2 doesn't exhibit this error, so it only happens for actual slew commands.

This can't have anything to do with mount gearing errors or backlash since there are no encoders to detect those.  I haven't yet verified this behavior with actual images, and so maybe it is just a mount reporting issue.

I am using the 9T_17a_EXOS2.eeprom firmware from the 2020-JUNE-08 FIRMWARE RELEASE, ASCOM Platform 6.5.0.3091, and ES_PMC8 Setup_20190107AnyCPU.exe driver.

Any Thoughts?

Thanks, Pete
