    New ASCOM pop-up

    OK, gone back in to the remote PC, and redone the uninstall / reinstall with a restart in between. Checked the programData file and all the files are still there. Will check when we next get a clear sky.

    Ah. Done the reinstall but didn't restart the computer. I did, though, back up the ASA ProgramData file just in case.

    New ASCOM pop-up

    Thanks for the reply Waldemar, and sorry for not replying sooner. I've reinstalled the ASCOM platform, but I think I will have to reinstall the Autoslew as well, something I'm afraid of doing. Had too many borks to be confident. The pop-up doesn't occur when slewing from Cartes du Ciel, only on the first time Sequence calls for a slew from Autoslew.
  4. Yep, yet another bork. I was running a sequence of two targets a couple of nights ago. All appeared to be going well until the sequence ended. Sequence closed down as it was supposed to, parking the mount and closing the roof. But then I saw Servo Errors popping up in Autoslew. The CCTV showed the telescope pointing into the roof, while Sequence was repeatedly trying to start a sequence by synching the 'scope. I ended up having to close the program to stop it. A check of the Log file the next morning showed that Sequence was trying to re-run the second of the targets. I've not h

    New ASCOM pop-up

    Not yet, that might be the next step. Odd that it should have happened to both computers at the same time.
  6. For the first time last night I got an ASOM pop-up asking me what type of mount I had. This occured when Sequence called for a move from Autoslew. I have looked in both Sequence and Autoslew for a setting that might have become unchecked but everything looked to be as it had been. I got this both on the DDM60 rig which had needed a software rebuild after a total crash, and on the DDM 85 which, as far as I know, has been OK. Has anyone else seen this lately? How can I prevent it from getting in the way again. After I tell ASCOM which type of mount I have it proceeds normally
  7. As far as I can tell it does use Park 1. Although I tried setting the OTA horizontal Autoslew didn't like it, firstly refusing to lay the OTA horizontal as it was below the limit, secondly I was getting position errors on startup. I've reset the OTA to the zenith for the time being.

    C drive full

    Thanks Robert. 😄 Damn stupid emoji can't get rid of it What I typed was that I found a similar huge Sesto Senso log file on the C drive of the other remote PC, but was able to delete it as I had restarted the PC.

    Thanks for the tip Robert, it looks to have worked. When I connected by RDP I found that my documents folder had grown from 27GB to 30GB! Why, I have no idea, as I had managed to delete some files last night. After a forced Restart I was able to delete that huge file and now have 30GB free disk space. I haven't tried running Sequence yet so may have yet another bork, which are coming thick and fast with my hardware / software. Still need to find out what is wantonly filling up my hard disk. Hope I haven't picked up someth9ing nasty from the web, but Windows Antivirus isn't showi

    Thanks Robert. I'll have a go at it tomorrow, when I have enough working brain cells lined up. It will mean going out to the obsy and connecting a keyboard and mouse so a bit chilly. If I can set a new location then the big NAS in the office seems like a good place.

    As the title says. I haven't deliberately save anything to the small (64GB) boot drive of my obsy PC, but just now when I came to connect by RDP I got the message that my Talon roof control couldn't open because the drive was full. On searching I found a huge (27GB) folder of Sesto Senso logs. When I tried to delete them I got a message that they couldn't be deleted as the folder was open is Sequence, which iwas not itself open on the desktop. Can anyone shed light on the problem? I have been able to (Apparently) free up just over 2GB, but the last time i did this the drive was full
  13. OK, thanks Mark that's what I was thinking of doing. So I can set Park 1 to be horizontal as I would need, and then change Park 2 to be the zenith position.
  14. Well, I've RTFM, and looked in Autoslew and Sequence, and still can't find where to set Park 2 as the default. so it may have to wait until I can get an auto cover. There goes another £800 that I'd rather not spend.
  15. Thanks Mark, I was thinking that Park 1 was special so will leave it as is. Now to RTFM to see how to tell Autolew to use Park 2 as default, as I need it to park in a position I can leave it without worrying about anything falling onto the mirror.
