eqmod problems

Postby sgb2164 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 2:18 am

I'm having major problems using eqmod to control my scope, via CdC. I open CdC and connect my mount, (HEQ5 Pro) no problems. I then click on a star in CdC and slew to it then sync it. I do this a few times but every now and then the scope won't respond to a go to command or starts to slew but then stops before it gets to its target some times it continues past the target and won't respond to the stop button. Occasionally the eqmod panel flashes up "timed out". I'm running the latest version of CdC, and ASCOM and all my drivers are upto date. I've renewed my EQDIRECT cable. I've even tried running CdC and Eqmod on one laptop and my imaging camera (Atik 428ex) on another laptop in case it was a case of conflicting drivers. The mount works perfectly well when using the synscan hand set. Any ideas? Thanks in advance Stuart.
