Can confirm my second project with the lattepanda has been a success. 😁 Chuffed to bits,
Flashed my az gti to the az/eq firmware
Installed,, CdC, Ascom, eqmod onto my Windows 10 laptop. Plugged az gti eq mod cable from FLO into laptop and azgti, configured to cdc and eqmod,, azgti now controlled via cdc..
Disconnected the laptop,, plugged the lattepanda in its place,, had to reconfigure comm port,, working via lattepanda now,,
Last bit of the project,, install tight vnc on laptop,, put in panda ip address,,
Laptop,, lattepanda are connected to my smartphone hot-spot.
I now have wireless remote desktop control of the panda,, eq gti / eq panda is born,, 😁
Can anyone confirm (or refute) - have I imaged Ganymede and Europa in orbit around Jupiter or is that just wishful thinking? (Only equipment used was a Lumix G7 with 150mm zoom lens - effectively 300mm with 2x crop factor - and of course a tripod).
It appears to be the case and yet I can't quite allow myself to believe it...
Thanks from an old newbie.
I am at a complete loss to understand why eqmod was not syncing on CdC last night. I have had a look at this video, I had the star centred on the screen [3m33s], I pressed sync on CdC, I got the dialog box [3m39s], I clicked 'yes' and NOTHING happened: the white circle stayed where it was, no sync points were added to EQMOD, zilch!
I can get round most problems, but this really one stymies my GOTOs and, therefore, my imaging process.
I have been unable to find anything in the EQMOD documentation that deals with such an error and a search on here has turned up no help (but that always depends on the words put into the search!). I checked all the obvious things (location, date/time, etc - but why any of these should stop sync working is beyond me). It's all running on Windoze 10.
Any suggestions on why this should have stopped working and (more importantly) how I might get it working?
I'm thinking of producing a custom horizon for CdC to make it easier to see when an object will be hidden by buildings, trees etc.
The CdC help references Stellarium help but the internet link is broken and I don't have it installed and would prefer not to install it just to read some help.
Has anyone done this? If so how did you go about doing it? I was going to take a panoramic image with my iPhone as a starting point but I'm not sure if the image projection will be correct or not and if I will need to manipulate the image in anyway as well as change the sky colour.
Thanks in advance
