This is my very first time working with a telescope and i'm having trouble connecting my mount to my pc (It seems very easy for you guys, shame on me).
I've followed a lot of threads which helped me a lot on this forum but it still won't work.
This is what I've done:
-I've build a cable RJ12/USB with a USB/TTL chip connecting the Rx to the Tx, the Tx to the Rx and the GND to the GND. (with the adpated driver which works fine)
-I've installed the Driver "AzGoto by Armazem Do Telescopio"
-I've installed the ASCOM plateform
-I've installed StellariumScope, Stellarium and Skychart
-In both softwares I chose the Driver AZ GOTO, fill in my latitude and longitude and the appropriate port COM
But when I try to connect my telescope, I have to wait over 5 minutes until an error pops up with 'BasicApi.MountControlException"
Do you guys have any idea what's going on ?
Again, these are my first steps into Astronomy.
Thanks you very much.
I have Skywatcher Synscan V3 working with my EQ6 without problem.
I've lately flashed firmware v.3.39.05 and tried using it with my Skywatcher Virtuoso. I have problem with 2-star alignment. After manually move the mount to point to the first bright star, align; then choose the 2nd alignment star, the mount will slew to the sky very far away from the 2nd star. After I managed to complete the 2-star alignment successfully, the goto accuracy was very bad. It always placed my scope quite far away from the targets. I've tried the whole night and gave up.
I then begin to wonder whether I have to flash the hand controller with the firmware for Allview mount (v.3.09.06) instead. Anyone can share your experience on this?
