Hello,
Recently, I acquired the NGC6357 (declination 34 south) from my backyard (declination 37 north) using my new AP 1100GTO-AE for 20 minutes subframes in the light-polluted area. It performed excellently during the sequences from 2 AM ~ 5 AM at 15~17 degrees above the horizon when I was asleep. It is an amazing telescope mount!
It is uploaded to Astrobin https://www.astrobin.com/ipp2wk/
Hope you like it.

Hi Horia,

Would the Recal then change the pointing (not the Pointing Model) in any way?
Yes, a Recal will shift the model internally to match the local coordinates in the RECAL.

Generally the PE curve has no effect on a sky model, so whatever model you have stored will not need to be
updated or changed because of a new PE curve.



If you want to run a new PE curve, you would want to do it with the mount running at the basic sidereal rate and
not with a custom rate running in the background. So, just run the mount straight up with no external software
except PEMPro active.

Hi all,

I have recently decided to create a new PEC using PemPro (been about 1 ½ years since I got my AP1100.
However, I have a few questions:

1) Do I need to disable APPM before running the new PEC?

2) Will I need to create a new model in APPM after the new PERC is installed?

Thanks,

Re: Ethernet Control of AP1100 Mount

Ray Gralak
 

The choices seem to be:

(1) a software solution using Eltima Serial over Ethernet Connection
(2) a hardware solution using the StarTech Ethernet to Serial Device.
(3) Use the AP V2 ASCOM driver, which also allows you to connect via an IP address.

Ethernet Control of AP1100 Mount:



Previously I controlled my AP1100AE/CP4 (S/N 0288) mount using the standard USB to FTDI to Serial connection
using Ascom. All was good. Now I have a new hi megapixel camera that crashes regularly. To help trouble shoot
and perhaps solve the problem, I would like to move my mount to Ethernet control. I understand the ‘preferred’
solution is to use APCC. I would prefer not to have to learn yet another program if there is a simpler way.

The choices seem to be:

(1) a software solution using Eltima Serial over Ethernet Connection

or

(2) a hardware solution using the StarTech Ethernet to Serial Device.



For now I have downloaded a free 14 day trial of the Eltima software. However, AP does not offer enough info in
the CP4 manual and startup supplement nor in the Ascom manual. I have also searched this IO group, finding a
only few small tidbits.

Has anyone done this?



(i) I can connect directly to my CP4 using Firefox and have set Wifi to Off. It is not clear whether I should set
DHCP mode to ‘Server’ or ‘Client’.



(ii) It is not clear whether the Eltima software should be run in Client or Server mode. It is not clear what Com port
I should use or how to find the correct port. With USB to Serial via FTDI, Ascom was set to Port 4.



(iii) And what settings for the AP Ascom driver? There is a port setting and 3 check boxes – IP address, APCC
Virtual Port, and Use Ascom Serial Object.



All very complicated. I am currently testing with just the CP4 setting on my desk top. My working USB/FTDI/Serial
setup delivers a ‘Mount Found ---’ on port test. Everything new yields ‘Mount Not Found’. Would the StarTech
hardware solution be closer to plug and play?

Re: Ethernet Control of AP1100 Mount

I am using the Startech 1 port Ethernet to serial adapter. It didn't work at all on TCP mode. After moving to UDP it worked flawlessly 
while the control computer was on cat5e. Now trying my control computer on wifi I am getting some comm errors (like clockwork) 
every 10 minutes.
 
I am going to throw the towel in on the Startech I think. I will keep my control computer on wifi (since its mounted on the scope), 
but I will cave in and make a custom DB9 serial cable (for the scope->pier tether) out of some very very temperature forgiving 
cable by Cicoil.
 
I really wanted a DC power only tether this time but I want flawless comm between APCC and my mount even more.


Re: Ethernet Control of AP1100 Mount

Christopher Erickson
 

I experimented with Eltima quite a bit in the early CP4 days and was never able to get it to work reliably. Furthermore Eltima seemed to cause problems/conflicts with other programs on my system.

My suggestion to you is to use APCC standard edition and leave most everything on the default settings for now.

> Here is the new Mach2 shaft end design on Left with older 1100 on Right

I also noticed this difference which is a welcome change.   But I don't think this makes a difference with the Steel threads vs Aluminum threads.
Early on I was using my 1100 shaft (with the shorter non-threaded tip) on the Mach2 and it worked fine.

Subject: [ap-gto] Counterweight Shaft Adapter with Stainless Inserts on Web Site

 

I just saw in the new products section of the A-P web site that they will be offering the counterweight shaft adapters with the stainless steel inserts starting this fall for the Mach 1, 900, 1200, and 1600 mounts, but I don't see the 1100 mount in the list of mounts for which these are available. Will we be able to get these adapters for the 1100 mounts ?

Mike
