I believe the manual says try to unpark and park with AP Ascom or APCC. Last night I started the mount and connected with NINA. This was my first tracking session with this mount, so this a newbie making sure My process is correct. At the end of tracking M31, I used NINA to park to #3 the mount. Dec returned to correctly, RA was 10 to 15 degrees off, weights East. So I then tried the AP Ascom to park. The mount corrected and moved to park position #3.
So here’s the info to fill out the picture:
NINA 1.11 - very recent version: I only used the simple sequence aspect of setting up a single target.
APCC - not installed yet
AP ASCOM V2 - installed
Keypad is attached and is configured for Ext.
Camera: ZWO ASI183MC
ZWO MINI GUIDER w/ ASI290MM
- Start mount
- Start Nina
- connect eqpt
- set Nina to slew, and auto correct (platesolve)
- run a set of four settings, about 3 hours worth
- manually I used NINA to Park, in NINA park is set to position 3.
*** this is where it didn’t fully move to park #3
This where I used the AP ASCOM V2 interface to park, which it did correctly.
So I was surprised that NINA didn’t park it correctly. A side note, I did notice that when slewing to M31 it was several degrees out.
