Re: A Question Regarding an AP900 Mount
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Liam, thx for the quick reply.
I am using the CP2 as my mount is from the early 2000's.
I'm connected from the ASI Pro via a USB to serial cable.
You don't think it could be the CP2 to dec axis cable?
I've also noticed poor tracking even unguided. In a 5 minute exposure I sometimes see a double image. Which is why I'm questioning the CP2 to dec axis cable and not the serial cable.

What CPx are you using to drive the motors? A CP3 or a CP4?
If the keypad has no issue moving the dec axis, then the motors and the mount are fine. I suspect a software issue or cable issue. I would start with using a different cable and connector to reach the CPx. For example, on a CP3 you could swap out your serial cable and use the second serial port.
