I have an Ioptron CEM40. I loaded the Ioptron Commander driver. SGP recognizes the mount. I set the mount to the zero position, and set Ioptron Icommnander to the zero position. I entered the target coordinates in SGP. I hit “slew” in SGP. The mount went off in the wrong direction, hit the limits, and actually burned out the board before I could hit the power switch. (The mount is on the way back to Ioptron.) The actual position of the mount was not communicated to SGP by the Ioptron driver, or SGP did not query the mount. Any advice on preventing this from happening again?
I use SGP all the time to find and center objects with plate solves with my Astrophysics mount…never any problems!
