    Hello guys, I just had Richard and the pro version of TheSky is the minimum to unlock pushto/goto functionality. He also told me about current works on Ascom and Indi drivers. I didn't have time to ...

    Good evening guys, The skyX plugin is available (Goto functionnality) as well as firmware 2.0 ! Quite an expensive software that I never used, and the pro version is necessary... but I can't stand ...
  • Hello there, Just want to add my contribution to the thread. I used the lens on several deep sky objects and, the lens which is quite good, has unfortunately bad coma correction. Pretty obvious ...

    Hi there, I used again on M42 with 3min subs. All were near perfect regarding tracking (40 lights, all without any tracking defect), which comfort me in the good accuracy of the mount at 400mm of ...

    I want to thank you for the tip to "force" a drive to go into DEC mode. I tried to use the GEM mode tonight and the DEC drive suddenly stuck in RA mode. It was working fine so far with this ...

    Thanks for the dovetail. So I will just find a short one and add a screw for security. Regarding the polemaster, I made a adapter with plywood. Nothing complicated to do.

    Thank you. Indeed I'm relieved that has been fixed, but I still need to test the GEM configuration to ensure everything is OK. When you mention the Fornax adapter, do you mean that it may fit the ...

    Hi everyone, I'm back with news about my AT360. I had finally Richard to help me fixing this encoder issue. Postal service was terrible and a small board module has been disconnected from the main ...

    Wow, thank you for the time you spent writing the message, it will really helpful. Same situation, the weather is so bad these last weeks that I can't test everything properly. I might have a small ...

    Hi Spencer, Thanks for the reply. So you faced the same issue regarding the tracking speed and I understand this new firmware doesn't fix it (by the way, how can I check the firmware version?) On ...
  • Replied in Astrotrac 360
    Hello everyone, I had the chance to get a 2nd hand Astrotrac 360 GEM few days ago and I have several issues that seem to be mainly listed before such as: - Tracking : it seems to be "locked" on ...
