  1. Ok, so I had initial problems with the Ekos program communicating with the iOptron CEM70g, It was indicated that as the CEM70 was such a new mount that I could use the Cem120 option, this worked but comms was intermittent, basically dropping communication, so after joining the Indi forum and speaking with Knro (one of the admins and developer of the software) he eventually, one Sat afternoon, through permissible remote access, managed to diagnose that the CEM70 has a different baud rate, so he changed the baud rate in Ekos and it works smoothly, there was some tinkering to set the ports etc in
  2. Hi Ouroborus, So after weeks of research, deliberations and some very informative info from FLO, I have followed a very similar format to yourself. Here is where I am at; ZWO ASI183MC Mc Pro connected to W/O Mk1 ZS 71ED via W/O 6aii reducer/flattener sitting on iOptron CEM70g mounted on iOptron Tri-Pier all being run on a 2018 MacBook Pro using Kstars/Ekos/Indi software to control camera, mount & eventually the built-in iGuider in the mounts saddle iPolar software for polar alignment also PHD2 for guiding if I can get the iGuider to commun

I have purchased the new iOptron’s CEM70g mount along with tri-pier, I’m using MacOS for operation but there are limited softwares available for certain operations. I have heard that Parallels is and can be used to run the windows based programs. My questions are; Which software/s do you use for imaging, capturing and processing (pre &am
  5. Any adapters required for mounting or is it a straight bolt on so to speak?
  6. I’m the same, just itching to pull the trigger! Flo have my sale for this as with all my astro gear. Just waiting for the listings because it’s never just a mount to buy. There’s always some accessory/accessories required.
  7. Thanks Neil, it’s a long story but I’ve been in preference for an updated mount to become available with usb3, the fact that it has a built in guider and comes with WiFi on the the G model makes it even more appealing. I too am looking forward to some initial reports especially regarding the I guider .
  8. I have nothing against AltairAstro whatsoever but all my equipment, shopping experiences, help, support, communication and guidance has been exceptional from FLO, so they will always have my my custom.
  9. Hi Flo, what’s he latest please? Just need to spend the pennies before the Mrs does thanks Richard.
  10. That’s really god to hear Steve, about being exceptionally busy, always good for business.
  11. Any update FLO on this being added to your website?
