Re: Managing multiple mount personalities in APCC

My AP1100 has absolute encoders and I vaguely remember that you said that PE correction should still be
enabled even with absolute encoders. Is that true? If so, where is the option to do this?
Sorry, I forgot to answer this question. You do not need to enable/disable PEM if you have absolute encoders. If fact you can have one or the other enabled, but not both simultaneously.

Hi guys,

I just received my new to me AP1100 and got it talking to APCC. My question is what is the best way to
manage APCC with my AP1100 and Mach1GTO. I made two APCC configurations:

1. AP1100.ApccZ
2. Mach1GTO.ApccZ

I had thought that by loading either file, the ASCOM driver would also be configured. But that wasn't the case.
I
had to go into the ASCOM driver to set the mount type.

And also I guess since I can connect to either mount, I should also disable auto-connect for both Mount
connect and AP V2 Driver connect.

Is there a proper way to manage this without messing up or confusing APCC at some point?

Thanks!

Re: Lubricating 900GTO

John Shutz
 

Our Bulldog is going on 12 years old this May, do you have an English Bulldog as well? If so, being 14 years old would be a record in my book since they don't have long lifespans, in the 8 to 10-year range.  We thank every day after she turned 9 or 10 years old that she beats the average, of course, she has had your typical and numerous bulldog medical ailments and anyone considering a Bulldog should be prepared they can be very expensive to maintain, we have spent at least $3k per year for the last four years in vet bills, but it's one bill I don't mind paying.  The problem with the Bulldog relates to genetics, according to a recent scientific study, approximately 85% of the breed are related, the gene pool is diluted beyond salvation and hence the negative medical issues handed down from generation to generation.  Due to my age and physical condition because of multiple injuries in my lifetime, another Bulldog wouldn't be possible so we discussed with our vet (we have three actually) the possibility of getting a French Bulldog because they are smaller.  She put a big no on that because the Frenchie has it's own medical issues and the one she highlighted was serious spinal problems.  She has treated numerous French Bulldogs for this genetic flaw and highly recommended against getting one. The end result is permanent paralysis. 


Re: Neglected AP1600 mount

John Shutz
 

I posed the same question regarding my 900GTO.  The original owner bought it new in 2010-11 and it never saw first light.  He sold it to me a couple years back and the mount's status remains unchanged, except I replaced the chip and keypad battery and slewed the OTA around as a test, otherwise it has been sitting for 8 to 9 years.  When I bought the mount I was trying to resolve issues with another mount and promised to myself I wouldn't sell it until a couple things were ironed out.  It took a couple trips back to the factory and tons of testing, but at this time I feel pretty confident the mount is performing up to spec and hopefully I can soon start the learning curve with the 900GTO.  One thing I have learned so far, the AP mount requires a lot more effort, whereas my previous four mounts were relatively simple to set up and first light was achieved the day I took delivery of them. 

Sorry to sidetrack, but I never got an answer to my same question so I just might email George and follow his recommendation. My gut tells me everything should be OK with the internals, no chance for the grease to collect grit or shavings being unused assuming the grease doesn't have a shelf life we are unaware of.   


Re: Mount Not Found

Joe Zeglinski
 

Mikko,
 
    FTDI website has a chip address setup utility. Could it be that your FTDI adapter has a different Com(x) port number assigned on the two PC’s?      FTDI  “COM PORT ASSIGNMENT”
 
    There is also a VISTA Gadget  “FTDIPort Monitor” – as well as lots of other free FTDI support utilities.
Might be worth investigating.
 
Hope this helps,
Joe


Re: Mount Not Found

Ray Gralak
 

Hi Mikko,

The ASCOM driver will not configure itself so you must manually determine which COM port the mount is on. The first place you should look is in Windows Device manager to see which COM ports are configured by your system. Then try selecting each port available in Device manager in the ASCOM driver setup window and clicking "Check Port" to see if the mount is detected on that port. If no port works then maybe there is a cable issue.

I'm having the same problem than the last time I changed PC's, meaning the Setup Telescope doesn't find the
mount when I'm checking the com-ports. I've installed and reinstalled the Ascom drivers and the FTDI chip
driver but nothing helps. Everything works if I connect the old PC so I know it's not the cable or the hub. The
mount is a Mach1 with CP4 and the AP driver is the latest version.




Any ideas of what to try next?

There really isn't any difference between these mounts. The gear ratios are the same. All software commands are also the same.

I can’t speak to why they are there, but I can tell you that I owned my AP1600 for quite a while before the ASCOM driver listed at all. I just used the AP1200 at the time.



You’re basically doing the same thing that I am, and it works fine.

Subject: [ap-gto] Managing multiple mount personalities in APCC

Hi guys,

I just received my new to me AP1100 and got it talking to APCC. My question is what is the best way to manage APCC with my AP1100 and Mach1GTO. I made two APCC configurations:

1. AP1100.ApccZ
2. Mach1GTO.ApccZ

I had thought that by loading either file, the ASCOM driver would also be configured. But that wasn't the case. I had to go into the ASCOM driver to set the mount type.

And also I guess since I can connect to either mount, I should also disable auto-connect for both Mount connect and AP V2 Driver connect.

Is there a proper way to manage this without messing up or confusing APCC at some point?

Thanks!

cytan

The mount type does not matter.



Are both of your mounts CP4?

Hi Wade,
Here's a screen capture of the ASCOM driver, the mount configuration does not change when I attach it to my Mach1GTO. I assume that this would be a problem. But maybe I'm wrong. I hope the attachment goes through ...
