  1. Thanks for the replies. I’ll check what version I’m using but it must be the most up to date as I only installed it about a month ago. Ill try the link later but I’m sure I tried last night and it didn’t work because Stellariumscope has been taken down... maybe not. I’ll check. Cheers
  2. Hi, does anyone know how to connect Stellarium to ASCOM without Stellariumscope? Stellariumscope doesn’t seam to exist anymore and I’m wondering how to connect the two together. When I go to connect stellarium to the telescope using “other software” option, I just get connecting for a long time but never connects. Is it even possible anymore? I’ve seen videos of people doing using APT but I don’t want to pay for that really. Many help would be useful. Cheers
  3. Just to ask, do I need to set the slew rate to 0.5 in the synscan or does it refer back to that automatically after changing the slew speed?
  4. Thanks for the reply. Polar alignment is as good as I think it can be. Balance is offset.
  5. Hi. So I have a problem somewhere and I’ve been trying to fix this for a long time. I’m at my wits end with this!! Is so frustrating setting up every time and not being able to sort this. As you can see in the picture, I think I have a problem with R.A. stars move in one direction not around the object. I have upgraded to synscan and also had the mount tuned but the problem is still there. My polar alignment is spot on, so is my balance and level. I set up: Level balance in all 3 axis polar align 2 star alignment focus i am not guiding because my mount weight doesn’t allow for this. I have had good images out of this before what’s going on!??? I’m at the point of giving up. I can’t afford a new mount right now so I’m really hoping you lot can help me. Please......
  6. Did your kit come with a RS-232 cable? Just got mine and it’s not in the box...
  7. Hi I’m just wondering if anyone knows if there is any difference in these? Is there more torque in the synscan motors? If so will it deal with more of a heavy load?
  8. Hi all. Think I've sorted it! It seams there a sweet spot when adjusting the RA gear. Didn't have much time as the clouds rolled in but will check on the next clear night. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Thanks I'm at it right now & It has made a difference, but my stars are oblong instead of round!? Do you know why? Never had this before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
