Hi Guys

I maybe missing the point here somehow,,, I have been using stellarium and stellarium Scope to control mount etc via eqascom... I have just

switched to CDC, in stellarium scope a CTRL+1 key press would initiate a goto command (this was set up on a gamepad key press), my question is, can you configure a gamepad key press in CDC to do the same thing????

Thanks in advance

Steve

Not sure how your gamepad is connected to CdC/ mount??

I have EQMod connection to my NEQ6 mount.

In CdC I use the goto by right click on selected object - then "telescope/ slew"

My gamepad is connected wirelessly (logitech rumble pad 2), I can goto easily enough via CDC software, but would like to assign a gamepad key to do this, I have made a farily extensive internet search but have been unable to find any detail,,,, I have managed to set up a sync command via eqascom/gamepad but no success on instigating a goto...

Hmmm

You are correct. The EQmod manual, p33 details all the button assignments and doesn't include GOTO.

A question - how would you define the target to GOTO?? To me this normally means selecting an object remotely from the telescope FOV usually on the CdC screen......

Using Stellarium / Stellarium Scope select target then a  goto is initiated by a CTRL+1 keyboard stroke, on the gamepad this is configigarble (not sure thats a real word), but I am struggling to find a way to accomplish this in  CDC .....

OK

There doesn't seem to be a shorthand hot key for GOTO commands in CdC.

You need to select the object then right click/telescope/GOTO

Thank You for looking, into this.  Thats the same conclusion I came too, after spending a good part of today searching, oh well a little more effort required....
