Re: Mach1 Unable to Find Home Position Suddenly

Donald Rudny


I’m not a computer expert and hate Windows, but I understand that a driver can get corrupted.  Using Luminous directly would take the AP V2 driver out of the control system, wouldn’t it?  If it’s still off on the park with just Luminous, then there is a mount or CP problem.  If it works ok, then something is amiss in your computer/driver/APCC.  You should be able to initialize with just Luminous.  Not sure what park positions it allows for.  SkySafari only allows for Park 4.  I think they are working to allow for more.

Thanks Don. I have Luminous so I could try that. But... even if I just use the AP V2 driver, unpark the Mount and slew it to any direction and then ask it to park again, it will miss the park position. Any movement will confuse it now 9 times out of 10.
