Hoping someone can tell me what I am missing here:
I have recently started using SGP with my Celestron C11 on a CGX mount. I have used it with CPWI through the hand controller port and the USB port on the mount. Also, without CPWI and the ASCOM Celestron driver. I always polar align with PoleMaster then detach that and power cycle the mount. All drivers and ports give similar results to this:
I attach the USB cable to the hand controller and power up the mount.
Then I take one pic to make sure the camera is working.
Then I autofocus and calibrate the PHD2 guiding.
Then, I choose a target with the framing and mosaic wizard and create a sequence making sure the rotation checkbox is not checked.
Then I setup the filters and camera exposures in the sequence just created.
Then I hit run.
The telescope always fails to go to the target and always ends up pointing down to the ground as if my longitude was setup as east.
Yet my user profile shows it is west.
After repeating a couple times to see if it will go to the proper coordinates I power down the mount, close SGP and start over.
Sometimes this works and the pointing and centering plate solving proceeds fine from there.
Not always though and I repeat the power cycle and start over until it works.
I cannot figure out why SGP points in the wrong place initially then through some sequence of power cycling, application shutdown and restart it suddenly works.
Any insights and /or suggestions to get this to work the 1st time is greatly appreciated.
