Has anyone had any experience installing ASCOM driver onto the EQM 35 pros SynScan hand controller for using with PHD2? I'm watching a tutorial using PHD2 and the chap is using ASCOM for connecting his computer to his guide camera instead of using a cable. So the computer becomes the middle man instead of the mount.
I've just managed to get hold of an AsiAir Pro. First impressions are just spot on. I had a little concern when it arrived as I wasn't sure if it would handle a USB hub. Much to my surprise it did! I connected the following to make sure
ZWO178mm Main Camera at present
ZWO120mm Mini Guide Scope
ZWO EFW Mini Filter Wheel
SkyWatcher EQ 35 Pro via USD with Direct PC Connect option using the EQMount INDI driver
Powered EQ Mount, EAR via AsiAir Pro
All connected successfully. Will keep updating as I start to use 🙂
Hi All, wondered if you could help me make sense of this ... new HEQ5 - belt modded by FLO, all feels good, minuscule backlash but strange guiding.
Admittedly first time using it but baffled.
Failed calibration see image below and guiding seemed to be Ra and Dec following each other.
Stars look ok ish (@ 1500 mm )
Needle galaxy is poor as only about 10 mins each in RGB
note - it was hazy and did keep losing star in OAG
Thanks for looking
Dear Avalon Enthusiasts,
Do you have PHD2 Guiding Logs that you could share? Preferably at least 30 minutes long.
I am curious about the contribution to the overall error from the individual parts of the belt reduction gear. PHD2 Log Viewer provides nice analysis capabilities for that. I am especially interested in the frequency analysis.
Background is that I have built a motion module that uses a timing belt gear reduction quite similar to the Avalon mounts. Performance is quite good already, but I would like to compare it to the "real thing". 😃
Hi A very newbie question here but for the life of me cannot figure it out.
Have an EQM35 goto mount linked through a skywatcher wifi dongle to a synscan pro app on my android galaxy s9 phone.
I van use the app but have a couple of things that are either greyed out or dont operate when pressed:
1. Point and track
2. Doesn't seem to track (tried the.moon) using lunar tracking but mount doesn't move
Thanks in advance for your help.
