Re: strange behavior of Mach2 in Skyx #Mach2GTO: slewing instead of tracking

We will look into this. Meanwhile can you use the jog buttons in APCC?
It may be that SkyX is configured to send a "move" command but not a "quit move" command when the button is released. Therefore the mount continues to move at the button rate.

Subject: [ap-gto] strange behavior of Mach2 in Skyx #Mach2GTO: slewing instead of tracking
I am using my Mach 2 with APCC pro and skyx.
Everything seems to work, except for one strange behavior:
-if I use the jog buttons in skyx, the mount get stuck in a slewing mode, with a wrong tracking speed (not sidereal). There is nothing at this point I can do to put the mount back in tracking mode: The only possibility is to disconnect the mount from skyx.
Except for this the mount point, sync, track, and autoguide using pulse guide just fine.
Can this be a bug related to the young mach2?
Thank you very much,
