Re: ethernet connection troubles

….and now, here is some information obtained by questioning: “GTOCP4 Ethernet - Wifi Poll”…… incomprehensible !

All this seems to me more and more mysterious and need some efficient help .

Thank you .

Ben, Roland,

how do you "see" that the computer’s IP address is the same as that of GTOCP4?


Do you confirm that the “GTOCP4 Ethernet - Wifi Poll” link allows us to indicate and / or modify the address of the GTOCP4, page “GTOCP4 Wired Ethernet Properties” (as this screen shot), 
<E1-Chgt adress.png>

and page “Wifi Interface Available on this GTOCP4” to enable / disable the Wifi connection and to connect / disconnect it  (as this 2nd screen shot)  ?

Would you tell me how to choose a manual IPv4 address with “GTOCP4 Ethernet - Wifi Poll” link, please.

Thank you very much for your help.

To go in a different direction, you could call it the Mach2 Skyrocket or the Crossfield or something else that relates to Mach 2.

(Scott Crossfield was the first person to achieve Mach 2 in the Douglas D-558-2 Skyrocket).

Actually, just plain Mach2 is fine.  Appreciate the update on progress.  Stay safe.


Re: Meridian flip slew aborted?

 

Hi,

Similiar problem here, since last week all meridian flips are failing with SGP and APCC. It started from one imaging session to another without having changed or touched anything…same object, consecutive nights. From the logs it looks like the slews were abortet within milliseconds (last night I watched the mount actually moving briefly upon the attempted flip and then the sequence aborted).

Been staring at all the logs now for days but I am at a loss, it definitely looks like a command was sent to abort the slew but I cannot think of where this was coming from.

I have uploaded the logs from last night let me know if you need more information, the flip started at around 01:06:30:

You guys are great.  During development, we very seriously considered naming it the Mach2 Challenger.  We had loads of reasons – it will challenge your perception of what a mount can do, it’s gorgeous and sexy (like the Dodge Challenger), etc, etc.  But we decided against it because we were loath to be even remotely disrespectful of the amazing men and women who died in the Challenger Space Shuttle.  With that said, after the month we’ve just put in and looking at the weeks/months ahead, I’m voting for the Challenge Edition. ;-)

Re: APCC equivalent of hand controller "re-calibrate"?

Richard Spencer
 

Geoff,

Thank you; I had a look and that box in fact is checked, so it must be the default, since I haven't messed with it.  

What that seems to mean, however, is that I also have not synched since the time my rig was used as a portable "wheel out of the garage"  set up, all the way through its new incarnation as a permanent set-up in my observatory.

So last night, I unchecked the box, did a counterweight down synch, re-checked the box, and proceeded as usual.  I am hoping for improved pointing accuracy now that I've synched for the first time in a very long time, but don't know yet whether that will be the case.

Dear All,

I am doing counterweight up imaging to extend tracking time; in the hand controller manual, we are told never to "synch" with CW up, but rather to "re-calibrate" to improve pointing accuracy.

But I'm not using the hand controller; I'm imaging with my computer set-up, with APCC running along with all the other necessary software for acquisition, guiding, ....

Is there an equivalent to "re-calibrate" in APCC (or elsewhere)?  I am trying to improve go-to accuracy in the CW up position.  

Currently, I'm "synching" on some bright star CW down, and slewing to my object with a meridian delay so I achieve CW up, but with marginal accuracy (at best; I have to plate solve to figure out where I am, and this can fail if I'm too far away from the "supposed" RA and Dec coordinates).

Many thanks,

Re: APCC equivalent of hand controller "re-calibrate"?

Richard Spencer
 

Rolando, thank you--it sounds like you are saying that there's no problem as long as APCC is launched?  However, I don't know whether my "synchs" (e.g. through Sequence Generator Pro, or Cartes du Ciel), operate "through" APCC, or directly from those programs.
