Developers of astronomical software can use the ASCOM standard to allow their software to talk to any kind of telescope that includes an ASCOM-compliant driver, eliminating the need to develop a separate interface for each popular type of telescope out there. Or sign in with one of these services. Setting up all the software on my win10 laptop and getting things to talk to one another is a nightmare. Is there anything I can use to collect the data but a little mre mobile than a laptop? Third Alignment Step First, select a constellation from the drop-down list. Slewing Window The numbers in the window will change as your move your telescope around in the sky.

I believe they are supposed to be tic encoders. The output is in the range from 0 to To slew to your intended target, push the telescope around until the numbers each go to zero.
Cool, I’ll take a look tomorrow. I thought I’d try a dark file again, and get the same message as the last time I tried it a few revisions ago:. ASCOM is a standard developed for interfacing computers and telescopes. Someone suggested that when I use the platform, I set up the driver for equarorial, on the theory that it would think that the Poncet is the declination axis.
The Sky 6 Serious Astronomer and ASCOM
Will your ascom driver work with losmandy dsc? Without updating the driver, ROI didn’t work correctly or at all. The Setup dialog box will appear:. I’ll get to that later! The numbers in the window will change as your move your telescope around in the sky.
Installing ASCOM for SkyTools
The Serial Port field can be edited if necessary. Third Alignment Step First, select a constellation from the drop-down list. Next, point your telescope at that star, centering it in the field of view.
Did you measure your encoders to arrive at non-rounded figures? The full list of improvements:. I really like the constellation method of selecting guide stars. D Thank you again. I’ve also tried the SharpCap native Plate solver with the astrometrics install from ASPS, it tries to solve takes a while, but can’t find a solution.
That was a disappointment for me since I use one I made myself. If home position has a reading of e. This box should normally be left unchecked.
ASCOM Driver for Digital Setting Circles
If the driver indicates that the telescope interface is not present, make sure that the correct serial port was specified, and that the interface is powered up and ready to go. I thought I’d try a dark file again, and get the same message as the last time I tried it a few revisions ago: If not then the problem will most likely be that the FITS header is missing some required data to determine the image properties.
Heart of the device is Raspberry PI 2 microcomputer. Posted Monday at It appears to work fine using ‘other’ and ‘find cameras’.
TheSkyX Pro ASCOM Support – Software Bisque
Wky should now be pointed at your desired target. One thing I noticed when I went to your site was that equatorial platforms are not supported.
Register a new account. I awcom tried the others and they all produce the same error. The settings will be saved for subsequent sessions. All Sky Plate Solver – Camera array data unsupported. In your case it would be fairly easy for you to use my board and write some custom software that simply reads the encoder values and displays them somehow.
