Re: APPM Questions

Hi Tony,

I didn't realize the dome might stop and start slewing multiple times like in your video.

I made a slight tweak to APPM to check dome slewing status in the settling state. If APPM sees the dome slewing while in the "Settling" state it will move back into the "Slewing" state.

So, please try this version:

I have tried active dome control with the same issue...the camera starts taking an image while the dome is still

I always have the Nexdome driver selected...but IOT slave the mount to the dome I need other software
connected (SGP/Voyager or ASCOM Device Hub/ASCOM Control Hub). Matters not as they all react the same.

Here is a video of what my problem is...APPM starts taking a pic while the dome is slewing:
