  1. Hi! I am wondering how you are measuring the offset between your filter to get good and reliable readings. I have on two different occasions measured each filter five times, and noted the "final focus position" in the autofocus routine in sequence, and then compared them with my L which is the reference filter. Even if I take five readings of each filter, and average them out - i still don't get perfect focus compared to L. This routine takes about 30-45 minutes - can it be the temperature which changes the focus point during this time? To my knowledge - there isn't any other way to do this right? I know that N.I.N.A has a built in "filter offset" measuring routine. There would be one way to work around this "problem" - new focus for each filter change... but the only setting in Sequence I have come across is "Focus every XX minutes" How are you measuring your offset? /Daniel
  2. Thanks for the heads up! do you think that if you hadn’t been in a focus routine, everything would have been ok with the shut-down?
  3. It should be this one:
  4. Have you been looking at mine 😂 (Exo Photography on YouTube) no sound but I have recorded how I make my autopoint and calculations.
  5. Thanks, I Will try it out
  6. Anyone running the 6.5 SP1 release together with latest Autoslew and Sequence 2.1.1 or 2.1.3 which can confirm that it works? /Daniel
  7. Have you done a new pointing file? And if, how did you do that? Manual or with Sequence? how many points? How did you calculate the pointing? Have you set a new home find?
  8. Sort of on-topic follow up questions... Is sequence using Park1 position as default when closing a sequence? I have problems when parking close to 180 degrees S and keeping the CW bar pointing east, I have to set it to 179 degrees. Even if i set my settings to let the mount pass the meridian with 5 degrees, it won't park my scope at 180 degrees without doing a flip so that the CW bar is pointing west instead.. Anyone know why? /Daniel
  9. The story continues... I checked the balance again, and in both axis, both in the eastern and western part of the sky, both at 40 degree alt and 75 degree alt. In all of the places, the balance is just 0,1-0,2 amperes off at most, so the balance is one of the best i have ever pulled off. I also checked the motor log for autoslew, there is a bit high current, sometimes going up to 4 amps, so there is some issue - BUT, autoslew has during theese days never showed servo error or pointing error, not once! This time, it suddenly stopped in the middle of an MLPT, it did the meridian flip as i should, no problem there. But the same error as the three last nights occured - it sais, in sequence, "ASCOM slewing" - but there is no slew going on. Both Sequence and Autoslew became non-responding. I feel more and more confident that this isn't a balance issue, but a software hickup. Has anyone seen or experienced something like this before? Have I set some kind of troublesome setting? The screenshot is from where all stopped for me. I couldn't open sequence to get that in the screenshot as it was non-responding, but the "autoslew" icon was flashing blue, stating a slew is in progress. /Daniel
  10. Hi! Tha last two nights, I had priobem with Autoslew crashing (Not responding). Both times, it has been when the mount is close to make an meridian flip - the first time, it wen't ok, last night, it didn't. I don't know if this has anything at all to do with my mount beeing close to the meridian thoguh. Sequence sais in the bottom left corner that "Ascom Slewing" - but the mount it not slewing at all. Autoslew logs is looking ok (a bit to high current but no error), The last 5 minutes in the log before the crash is attatched) As you can see, the log sais nothing about making a slew at the timestamp 20:31:20, but in sequence it does. One thing i did notice was that the log in sequence usually sais "Pierside" after the slewcommand is sent, but not for the last slew, which failed. Has anyone an idea what this might be? Autoslew problem? Ascom? Sequence? I Have not seen this before, and now, two nights in a row. I do how ever change the RA counterweight to even out the balance ever so slightly three nights ago, but the current looks better now than before??? Can this have something to do anyway? It is also between -15 and -20 degrees celcius, so a bit cold... but haven't been any problem before. /Daniel 20:26:06.047: Axis 1 slewing to 0.79 20:26:06.072: Axis 2 slewing to 13.10 20:26:08.080:

  11. Thanks for your reply. The scope is a 10" astrograph, maybe 20kgs load total, so the weight is not an issue. I do might have some radial balancing offset to look into. Last night went OK though, just made a fine tuning of the balance, changing a small balance weight. and making a new high performance autotune. I do how ever have a small difference in balance in different positions, i might take the rig down and play more with off set balancing. I will read the other thread once again
  12. I have been struggeling with my DDM 85 with incremental encoders. I have been balacing the rig to the full extent, the yellow bars are lining up at the "1.6A" view, in almost every position. But anyway, i get servo error almsot every time during a 5-6 hrs long session. I have attached the log if anyone care to take a loko at it... Some questions though - the "position" for each axis, is that Alt/az reported from autoslew? they look somewhat odd to mee as i was photographing the flaming star nebula at roughly 45 degree above horizon at the moment... /Daniel Utdrag från motorlogg 2021-01-04.txt
  13. My pleasure, it might help someone /Daniel
  14. Thank you for the input, much appreciated! I did another round of autofocus and this time, I got a totally different result. I perhaps got my scope a bit better collimated before. I will also try a third time with new V-slope measurements. This time it wen't much better and it looks like Ha and O3 is spot on, compared to my reference filter which is L. RGB is just a hundred of a millimeter off compared to the L so that is good to go. I will also calculate the distance in steps to have that in hand if i need to try the Maxim DL route. (Do i need FocusMax plugin for maxim to get that working?) /Daniel
  15. Hi, I am having some trouble with my focus offset and thought you guys might have som pointers Equipment: 10" f4 1000mm, with 3" TSNTRED corrector reducer f3,4 850mm Astrodon 36mm unmounted filters So, first of, theese filters are stated to be parfocal, but in my experience, they are somewhat off, either that or it has to do with collimation / altered conditions during the night. How ever, i took three readings (Autofocus in sequence) and avreged them out per filter, and the autofocus routine says the offset for RGB compared to L is around 0.02 to 0.03mm (if the autofocus routine measures in mm) The narrowband differs from L like this; Ha 0.11mm O3 -0.15mm S2 -0.13mm I think theese figures sound a lot to me, specially when astrodon is supposed to be parfocal. Is there someone here who uses Astrodon, what is your figures? I do have some more questions i need to get out of my head. - Can the offset be set as a negative number? - Is the focus routine measuring in mm? ( at f3.4 is looks like the numbers are to big to hit the CFZ ) Thanks / Daniel
