CCD Commander uses the park in the Sky unless you tell it otherwise. I
need not have the scope tracking because I might not get outside until
later that day. I use Park 1 for easier setup when I move the scope.

Moving to Park 1 and then slewing to the Park 3 position (which is not
working well for me) seems to be working. The next day, I can start
CCD Commander before sunset and leave the area. When I get back it is
imaging away.

Park 3 does not go exactly where it needs to be, the DEC points north
but RA can be 20-30 degrees off where It should go.

Here's my sequence: I slew to a location where I can reach the dew sheld
to take it off. I unplug the mount. Next time I'm out I put the dew
shield back on and plug in the mount. It still knows where it is. (But
I'm visual only, so I'm not using CCD Commander or anything similar.)

As for using the defined parks, at least one of them allows you to set
up the mount in the daytime with nothing more than a dime-store level.
This can be quite useful for solar observing or planetary observing at
dusk.

When I power up, you say I can just slew to M31 and it will be
there.

I can't get Park 3 to move where it needs to, the DEC is at 90
degrees but the RA can be at a tilt (tube slightly east/west).
Not
sure why. So I am using Park 1 which does go back as needed.

Just a stupid question, what is park important when moving from
one
location to another. I use PAM so I just tell TheSky to move to
a
star, then move in manually since it misses, then Sync the Sky
and
use PAM.

Re: DSLRStar works with AP900GTO?

Dr Bruce
 

Niels,

Good question. I have one of the units and it's accessories. I have
been unable to use it in the field due to surgery this summer, but as
I recall, you can. I was hoping to play with it on my P-2Z later in
November where autoguiding looses to great polar alignment.

I'll look it up this weekend and try to answer your question directly
as I too have an AP 900.

Re: AP1200 PE/PEMPro Query

Ray Gralak <rgr@...>
 

Hi Richard,

Hi Ray, one question please. Having checked all the settings in
PEMPro and the ASCOM settings, I discovered that the "PEM Playback"
check-box in the ASCOM settings was checked. Would this setting
override the PEC enable/disable options in PEMPro and the PEC
settings within the AP hand-controller?
It could, if you connect an application using the ASCOM driver AFTER you
changed the setting on the hand controller. Whenever you connect with the
ASCOM driver it will turn PEM on (or off) based on that checkbox.

That said, when you start acquiring data PEMPro asks if you want PEM on or
off and will send the appropriate command just before it starts (thus
overriding the setting in the ASCOM driver and keypad).

prefer a more sculpted or roto-moulded case, rather than the Spartan sharp
looking edges and latches, I see on the Company 7 case or the Scopeguard
version. Those are certainly very well engineered cases, inside and out, but I
prefer something like a Pelican. Even those rise quickly in weight with almost
an insignificant increase in internal volume.
"
I like Doug Forehand's Thermodyne cases" (at group's FILES section), for
his AP1200. Well padded, with tougher resilient formed foam sections. The
really unique feature of that product is that the ribs on the case top &
bottom are complementary - you can stack and tie down two cases, and the ribs
on the bottom of one, lock into spaces on the top of the other. That prevents
them sliding apart, when you transport them. However, I think I saw some
negative comments on them about their own ruggedness - (hinges perhaps?). The
main problem of the Thermodyne, perhaps, is that they don't have wheels and a
tow handle, a real back breaker, unlike the larger Pelicans (#1620 to #1650).

By the way, which case is that behind Rolando, for the Mach1, on the AP
group webpage - Pelican? And, is that an AP product?

We not only pack the mounts properly so they do not get damaged, we
also have
available airline cases that can transport them safely. The original
post was
about used mount getting damaged when the original customer does not
pack the
mount properly, not about any deficiency about AP packing the mounts.
I can certainly vouch for how well all AP equipment is packed prior to
its departure from the AP premises. I have an AP160, an AP1200GTO and
an AP Mach1GTO (yes, I is in heaven! :-) ) which made various
intermediate stops stateside and then overseas. Everything arrived in
PRISTINE condition and worked literally straight out of the box.

Whoever does the packing at AP does a thorough job!

Just use PEMPro to download the original curve and save it to a

I have recently taken delivery of a new AP1200 and just run
PEMPro to

PEC
disabled and recorded between 4 and 6 worm cycles each time. The
results have produced PE curves showing 1.37, 1.6 and 1.1 arc

AP1200, I then
ran PEMPro with PEC enabled and obtained a curve showing 3.2 arc

way around and I am wondering whether the pre-programmed PEC

with PEC turned off? If not, with PE of just over 1 arc sec

The way the servo works is that it will do whatever it is commanded from
whatever source. If the keypad is set to PEM off, this is a one time command that
is given at startup. This command is not sent over and over during the
operation of the mount. No command is sent more than once from the keypad or from any
other source. Therefore, if a command from any source is sent to turn PEM ON,
then that is the command that is acted on in the servo - i.e. it is always
the last command sent to the servo that is acted on. This is true of all
commands sent to the servo. If no commands are sent, then all is quiet on the
communication lines.

This is contrary to how other mount systems (like the Meade LX200) work. In
the Meade system they use a distributed computing concept that continuously
sends software traffic at megabit rates back and forth between central mother
board, motor controllers and keypad, so that all these components always talk to
each other, and all must be in perfect synchrony in order for the system to
work. This has both strengths and weaknesses. In our system, only the servo
components inside the CP1,2,3 box continuously talk to each other, and all outside
peripherals are treated as independent entities. Therefore all peripherals,
including the keypad are silent unless you, the user, activates them. And then
the communication is always only one way - toward the servo. The servo does
not initiate communication with any outside peripheral. It does not send any
info to any peripheral ON ITS OWN for any reason. It will send info out to a
peripheral if asked for the info by that peripheral.

A question and a suggestion:

Yes, ATA, Scopeguard and etc. type case are wonderful..........but expensive.

So, I have to ask, what is the intended use of your mount and therefore the
cases: ie.
Do you intend to be shipping the mount/cases or checking them on an airline?
If so, then the ATA type case is the only way to go.

However, if you only want the cases for storage or transporting the mount to
your observing site in your car or van then there are other, less expensive,
solutions. I currently use two white "Sterilite" containers for my AP1200GTO
mount. Sterilite containers are somewhat similiar to Rubbermaid 'tubs' but are
of a harder more rigid plastic. They come in various colors and graduated sizes
and have flat, snap on lids. I have one case for the RA component and one
case for the DEC component with saddle and ring unmounted ring set. I simply
lined the inside of each Sterilite container with 1 inch think high density poly
foam (dark gray). The RA and DEC sections just sit in each container and the
lit snaps on. The lids are made in such a way that the containers stack
nicely, which is how I have them my van during transport. The best thing is that
each container costs only something like $12.00-$15.00.
The poly foam will add something like $5-10.......so you get two cases for a
total of something like$35-40. I've been using mine for 6 or more years for
monthly dark site and star party trips and my mount doesn't have a scratch on
it. You can find Sterilit containers at places like The Contaner Store,
sometimes Walmart, Dollar General, Target, etc.

Many thanks, Richard
Inverting the PEM data will not work. The data was taken with lab
equipment
and then downloaded to the memory. The mount was then run again to
insure that
the periodic error was reduced and a record of both before and
after was
taken. The data in the mount is correctly loaded and should not be
inverted. If you
want to save this data to your computer, you can do so with PemPro
and store
it on your laptop. You can make a new curve using PemPro on the
night sky,
taking several cycles of PE, smooth it and download it to your PE
memory in the
servo. If this works better than the original, then use it.

My point was in no way suggesting any deficiency in the way you pack
mounts for shipment. What I was getting at, is to warn others who design their
own packaging, starting with empty Pelican type cases. Also, I have a concern,
from reading some posts, about having "too little case" for the amount of foam
inside. There has to be a balance - save on the case or foam design, pay later
for mount repairs.

But you mentioned your "airline cases" - I must have missed that item in
the product lists. Is there a specific one for the AP900?

We not only pack the mounts properly so they do not get damaged, we also
have
available airline cases that can transport them safely. The original post
was
about used mount getting damaged when the original customer does not pack
the
mount properly, not about any deficiency about AP packing the mounts.

Harold,

They sure did! The review is excellent!
Congratulations Marj, and I look forward to the expanded production as I wait eagerly for a Mach 1!
