Re: Stuck keys

Peter Santangeli

I'll check the next time - I've never actually let it run. I panic
and hit the stop key.

I've never used the encoder mode.

How long does it go in that direction? have you tried to see if it
to go? Check also to see if you have the keypad in the Encoder mode
where it
shows the position of the RA and Dec coordinates as you slew. The
encoder mode
continuously qeeries the mount for updated position, and it may be
that the
"stop" signal from your button release gets delayed during this
time. Try it
with the keypad in normal mode.
